So it is no wonder that Briley, along with Miles Sonnier, topped the league’s honors that were recently released.
Briley earned the district’s Coach of the Year honor while Sonnier was named the league’s Most Valuable Player.
Briley guided Midland to a remarkable 31-6 record before the Rebels were upended in the second round of the playoffs by Mount Hermon, 46-40.
Sonnier played a huge part in the Rebels’ success, averaging 17.9 points per game while battling through numerous injuries during the course of the season.
Sonnier is joined on the first unit by teammate B.J. Cormier. The sophomore guard averaged 17.3 points per outing.
Also making the first team were Hathaway’s Justine Fruge, Bell City’s Catlyn Cormier and Lacassine’s Lance Richard.
Midland’s Colby Gantt (12.4 ppg) heads up the second team along with ESA’s Max Kallenberger, Lacassine’s Joe Caraway and Landon Miller and Grand Lake’s Jordan Hebert.
On the girls’ side, Sharae Primeaux was the lone Lady Rebel to earn first-team honors. Primeaux averaged 8.7 points per game for Midland in helping lead the Lady Rebels to a 24-15 record before falling to eventual state champion Fairview in the Class B quarterfinals.
Particia Garrie (9.5 ppg) was named to the second team.
Mollie Vincent and Ramsey Falcon made the team as honorable mentions.
