In second place was John Weber of Cypress (California). The baseball coach elevated his team to a 31-3 record and first state championship in team history, knocking off some of the top competition in the state in the process and finishing No. 3 in the Super 25.

Weber earned 1,099 votes, which made up the majority of those that didn’t go to Shuman (33.28 percent). The two combined for more than 98 percent of all votes.

Both the Boys Coach of the Year and Player of the Year were hockey players. Bryce Brodzinski of Blaine (Minnesota) took home the player award.
