PRIEST RIVER — At its Nov. 2 awards ceremony, the Priest River Lamanna High School boys soccer program enjoyed a look back at the recently concluded season, and recognized notable performers on this year’s squad.

Bradyn Hahn won Most Improved Player honors. Head coach Rob Lawler said, “Bradyn continually improved all season long. He was a key defensive player by the end of the season and has a great future on the pitch ahead of him.” Evan Barnes earned Most Valuable Player distinctions. Lawler said, “Evan took on the goalie position about halfway through the season. His command of the penalty box was huge and kept us close in many of matches.” Drayven Ayers received the Most Valuable Spartan Award for his commitment to the team. “As sweeper and captain, Drayven was superb. He showed a commitment and perseverance every coach dreams of. His dedication was above and beyond the normal call of duty. He is a great example for other players to look up to and strive for,” said Lawler. Adam Irvine and Kris Morey were each chosen for the Coaches Award. “Adam was a huge part of our defense this year. He spent three years in the goal and taking on the stopper position was a new roll for Adam. His contribution was key in our defensive line up. Kris returned from a torn ACL last year and played mostly defensive position which was unusual for Kris since he typically played a wing position the prior three years. Another key player in our defensive line up,” said Lawler. Ayers and Morey were also each named to the All-Intermountain League team for their play this season.
