Congratulations to all the Register Guards' listing of their Athletes of the Year (for central/West area of Oregon including Eugene to Coos Bay) I have photographed 8 of their Overall Prep Athletes of the Year-including Mercedes Russell from Springfield, the #1 high school basketball recruit in America
In 2009, Mitch Wilson (who also did his senior portraits with me) won male prep Athlete of the Year.
In 2009, Tym Pearson from Thurston High School won that same honor.
This year, Emmanuel Morgan (and Mercedes Russell-above) won the Basketball Athlete of the Year.
AJ Bartko won for Boys Tennis (here with his sister)
and Danielle Duman won the RG award for Softball.
Congratulations to all the winners, past and present. Its quite an accomplishment that they can be proud of , not only today, but for years to come. All that hard work paid off.
