Perry QB Brock Purdy was one of five finalists revealed at the ceremony and the other four were Cienega senior QB Jamarye Joiner, Higley senior running back Draycen Hall, Chandler senior RB Drake Anderson and Centennial senior RB Zidane Thomas.

Joiner was unable to attend the ceremony, but he was excited about the honor when reached by phone. “I didn’t think I had a chance,” Joiner said. “Coming from Tucson I feel like an underdog, but this is really exciting. I want to thank everyone.”

Besides Joiner, other nominees from Southern Arizona included Sabino QB Alex Bell, Marana QB Trenton Bourguet, Ironwood Ridge RB Nick Brahler, Canyon del Oro RB Elijah Carey, Cholla QB Jordan Porter, Salpointe RB Bijan Robinson and San Manuel RB Christian Velasquez
