OL Keith Lolofie, Marsh Valley: On either side of the ball, Lolofie was dominant for the Eagles. He served as the center on offense for Marsh Valley and consistently opened holes for running back Dylan Bybee to find. That allowed Bybee to unleash his breakaway speed and made the Eagles’ ground game one of the best in the area.
LB Dillon Filiaga, Highland: Filiaga wasn’t quite as dominant as Baker was, but he was pretty close. A quiet leader, Filiaga piled up 85 tackles and helped give the Rams one of the most dominant defenses in southeast Idaho.
DL Keith Lolofie, Marsh Valley: How dominant was Lolofie at defensive tackle? American Falls coach Pat Patterson called Lolofie the best player he’d seen all year, and the Beavers had to play 3A state champion Shelley in the playoffs. That’s pretty high praise.
