Miles Fallin
Canyon football, junior

Fallin grew leaps and bounds from the beginning of the 2014 football season until the end. By the time it reached its end, the 6-foot-4-inch, 180-pound quarterback was considered one of the top sophomore quarterbacks in the state. He passed for 2,808 yards and 29 touchdowns. On November 7, he passed for a Canyon record 425 yards. Fallin enters his junior season as one of the most exciting young collegiate prospects in the state.

Elisa Pierre
Golden Valley golf, senior

When Pierre graduates in 2016, she will leave Golden Valley High School as the most accomplished female athlete in its history. She is a two-time Foothill League Golfer of the Year (sophomore and junior years) and is the absolute favorite to win the prize again this Fall. As a sophomore she reached the CIF State Golf Championship and as a junior she shot an SCV postseason record 67. This summer, Pierre accepted a scholarship to play golf at the University of Indiana.

Scott Ogrin
Valencia baseball, senior

Ogrin had one of the most incredible seasons in recent SCV baseball history. He was the Foothill League's Baseball Player of the Year for his play against the five local league teams. But he was outstanding in non-league and playoff competition as well. Overall, he batted .509 with six home runs and 28 RBIs with 24 total extra-base hits. Ogrin had 56 hits on the season - the most by a Foothill Leaguer in more than a decade.

Sarah Lindborg and Brooke MacArthur
Hart soccer, seniors

Hart got heartbreakingly close to playing for a CIF championship last year, falling short in the Division II semifinals. But the return of All-Foothill Leaguers Lindborg and MacArthur make Hart a team to look out for, not just in the Foothill League but in the Southern Section in 2015-16. Lindborg will be a big part of the offense and MacArthur will be a big part of the defensive story. Together, they could turn heartbreak into hard to beat.

Jessie Harper
West Ranch softball, senior

The Foothill League's Softball Player of the Year batted .519 with seven home runs and 26 RBIs with 56 total hits. Harper got a hit 66 percent of the time in league play. She was a key component in West Ranch's run to a perfect 10-0 record and trip to the CIF-Southern Section Division I championship game - the first time the school had ever reached the division's title contest.

Mariah Castillo
Saugus girls cross country, sophomore

When Castillo arrived last year at Saugus High School, she was already tabbed as the next great Centurions girls cross country runner. She lived up to the hype. After being one of the top runners in the Santa Clarita Valley during the regular season, Castillo announced herself as one of the top freshmen runners in the state. At the CIF-Southern Section Division II championship, she ran the 3K race in 18 minutes and eight seconds - the fifth fastest time among girls in her grade. At the Division II state championship, she helped Saugus win the team state title by running the race in 18:36 - second among freshmen and 25th overall.
