League honors area players

All-league teams, for fans who think about them and for the coaches who selected them, represent the ultimate wish list.

Now that there are 12 players for the first-team 2004-05 boys Class 4A Western Slope League basketball team, the next step would be to see how well they would mesh together on the floor.WSL coaches voted four players from area schools Glenwood Springs and Rifle to the first team. Another four earned honorable mention. Sean Flohr is the lone Demon to make the first team. His numbers back that choice.For starters, according to Rocky Preps statistics, Flohr’s 22.1 per-game scoring average was fifth-best statewide among 4A boys.

But Flohr was more than just a shooter this season. He was also among the Demons’ best in rebounding, assists and blocking shots as well.The individual stats for Rifle’s three selections to the first team, reflect the Bears’ season: They’re not huge, but, they are steady. Guards Brandon Lueallen and Adam Krick averaged 13.8 and 12.8 points per game, respectively. Rather than scoring, forward Bryan Cloninger earned his first-team spot with his defensive play inside.

Regular-season league champion Steamboat Springs had the most first-team players with four, including this year’s WSL player of the year, Cameron Burney.All four of the area’s honorable-mention choices are underclassmen.Glenwood’s Chris Benson and Michael Flohr, along with Rifle’s Stuart Stapleton, are juniors. Demons center Ryan Foraker is a sophomore.
