Player: Tucker Hackett
School: Daniel Hand
The Word: Hackett earned just about every honor he could last year — the goalkeeper was an All-Conference selection, an NSCAA/adidas All-American and a Class L All-State pick as a junior. He's also a good bet to be an ESPNHS All-State first team pick this season, but a state championship would mean more to Hackett than any award. Hand was bounced in the second round of the Class L bracket last year, but with Hackett in goal, a title run is entirely possible.
