Corona Del Sol High School's 6-foot-2 sophomore point guard Casey Benson has been selected as our 2012 Arizona Preps Boys Player of the Year.
Benson is coming off an excellent sophomore season where he led his Corona Del Sol High School boys basketball team to this year's 2012 Division-I State Championship, after a big 66-53 championship win over Cesar Chavez HS.
Benson also helped lead his Aztecs to the 2012 Section-I Championship, as the Aztecs only lossed one game on the season - compiling a very impressive 32-1 record on the season in the state's top division.
"First and foremost, I would like to thank my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, because without him this would not be possible," said Benson. "I just give all the glory to him. I would also like to thank my family, coaches and teammates."
Benson averaged 15 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds per/game on the season.
Benson is among the top overall talents in the state and is regarded as the state's top prospect in Arizona's very talented 2014 class.
"This was a blessed season," said Benson. "Our goal all year was to win a state championship. Every player on our team contributed to our success, and it resulted in a championship."
Congratulations from our Arizona Preps staff to Casey and the Benson family on this terrific honor.
