NP-Mansfield's Burleigh headlines All-Region boys' basketballFor the second year in a row North Penn-Mansfield's Brock Burleigh averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds and nearly five assists.

But this year he also led the Tigers to the a District IV title and a co-title in the NTL.

With a resume like that Burleigh repeats as the All-Region Player of the Year.

Waverly's Hunter Bodine is the Offensive Player of the Year. Bodine led the Wolverines to an IAC title and the Section IV, Class B title game with a combination of outside shooting, crafty drives to the basket and even some fancy passing.

The Defensive Player of the Year is Wellsboro's Dalton Prough. Prough did a little of everything for the Hornets at that end - steals, blocks, rebounding - and was a big part of their co-NTL title.

Troy's Anthony Deitrick is the Hustle Award winner. Deitrick was one of the most prolific rebounders and shot blockers in the area and even posted a rare triple-double.

Waverly's Gavin Judson is the Newcomer of the Year. Judson was one of the top three point shooters in the area and helped run the offense for the Wolverines.

Wellsboro's Quinn Henry is the Sixth Man of the Year. Henry missed the first third of the season but when he came back he made a big impact, helping Wellsboro capture a share of the NTL title as an off the bench spark plug.

Canton's Brock Kitchen is the Coach of the Year. Kitchen took a 3-win team from last year to the District semi-finals and a game away from a state berth with very little roster change.

The first team consists of Burleigh, Bodine, Prough, Waverly's Jon Ward, Sullivan County's Jon Saxe, Wyalusing's Jon Morrison, Notre Dame's Derrick Stark and Athens' Ethan Lane.

The second team is made up of Notre Dame's Gary Raupers, Athens' Gavin Stein, Deitrick, NEB's David Ford, Judson, Tioga's Nick Klossner, Canton's Ridge Moore and North Penn-Mansfield's Shane Kelly.

On the third team is NEB's Garret Smith, Wellsboro's Jacob Singer, North Penn-Mansfield's Konnor Manikowski, Canton's Byron Matthews, Towanda's Dalton Potter, Troy's Clark Jackson, North Rome Christian School's Lucas Roberts, Sayre's Marcus Bauman, Wellsboro's Brandon Lamphier and Williamson's Colin Heilbrun.

Skill award winners are NEB's Austin Senn-Bishop (Shooter), NRCS's Cole Jennings (Passer) and North Penn-Liberty's Garrett Bickhart (Rebounder).

The All-Rookie team consists of Judson, CV's Skylar Vinluan, North Penn-Liberty's Brandyn Choplosky, Wellsboro's Brandyn Tuttle, Tioga's Lukas Klossner, Notre Dame's Kyreese Fisher and Canton's Michael Smithers.

The All-Defensive team is Prough, Waverly's Zach VanHouten and Garrett Sutryk, Sullivan County's Alex Baumunk, Towanda's Luke Tama and Troy's Ja Wallace.

The Hustle team is Deitrick, Notre Dame's Ben Cook, Sullivan County's Jon Pedro, Sayre's Isaiah McClenny, Athens' Daniel Joyce and NEB's Michael Wallitsch.
