Bryce Cotton named NBL Most Valuable Player and Mason White named to Bobby Bragan Watch List

(Perth Wildcats)

Former Palo Verde standout Bryce Cotton was named NBL Most Valuable Player of the Year for the fourth time in seven straight years of being a finalist for the honor. Cotton also has seven scoring title in eight years with the Perth Wildcats.

Former Salpointe standout Mason White and former Pima standout Emilio Corona were named to the Bobby Bragan National Collegiate Slugger Award Watch List.

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to win either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS.
