THEO MEYER, SR, BUCHANAN BEARS

Nobody had more hype than Kendall coming into 2017 and everybody wanted to see if Kendall was the real deal and boy he is the real deal!! Kendall is getting recruited by so many with 25 plus offers and counting. Kendall finished rushing for 1,514 yards and scored 23 touchdowns.
PAG METER 940 ESPN BEST TWO SPORT ATHLETE
BROCK JONES, JR, BUCHANAN BEARS
This was an easy one. Brock is the best Safety in the valley who has an offer already from Arizona State for Football. In Baseball, Brock is one of the top players in the state and already has an offer from Stanford. It doesn’t get any better than that so when schools say it tough to play 2 sports, Google Brock Jones!
