Heritage Sr. QB Garrett Grayson (#18) and Skyview Sr. QB Autsin Dodge (#3) are the 2009 GSHL 4A Co-Offensive player of the year. Skyview Sr. DL Dallin Shirley (#41) is the 2009 GSHL 4A Defensive player of the year.

Heritage Sr. QB Garrett Grayson (#18) and Skyview Sr. QB Autsin Dodge (#3) are the 2009 GSHL 4A Co-Offensive player of the year. Skyview Sr. DL Dallin Shirley (#41) is the 2009 GSHL 4A Defensive player of the year.

The votes are in, and the coaches have spoken. 2009 belonged to the Skyview Storm as the rest of the GSHL fought for second. Skyview also led the way in the all-league voting landing 11 first team players and 4 second team players. They also had the Defensive Player of the Year in DL Dallin Shirley, and Co-Offensive Player of the Year in QB Austin Dodge. Kelso had the second most players on the list. The Hilanders had 5 first team and 3 second team selections. Evergreen, Mountain View, Battle Ground and Heritage all had a total of 7 players on the 2 teams. Heritage QB Garrett Grayson was also C0-Offensive Player of the Year. Grayson was the sole winner of the award last season as a Junior. Kelso coach Pat Hymes was voted coach of the year. His Hilanders were picked by many (including us) to finish last again in the 4A GSHL. The Hilanders went 6-3 and tied for second in the league.

Skyview Senior DL Dallin Shirley was voted Defensive Player of the Year while Offensive Player of the Year  was given to both Heritage Senior QB Garrett Grayson and Skyview Senior QB Austin Dodge.

    Just wanted to say that all of the school’s in the GSHL did a Great job. It is sad that we don’t get very much coverage down here in vancouver from the bigger papers in the state. That should all change very soon. Skyview and Union See you guys Dec 5 in the tacoma dome. GO GSHL!!!!

  2. It's ME on November 18th, 2009 6:57 pm

    Well deserved by ALL!!!
    Grayson & Dodge does make sense.
    Dallin Shirley NO DOUBT

    Skyview heavy as it should be given their league dominance. There’s always those you can argue with (Alec Osborne & NO 1st team honors); No Matt Spears at all???

    To little Kelso representation & too much Battle Ground especially given the crash of the Tigers stock! Henderson is easily the most dangerous weapon within the league and he has another year left; along withy Karl Graves returning for Skyview doesnt sit well for HS Defenses next year either!

    Anxious for Union to join the 4A ranks and make the conference a dogfight every year from here forward. GO LUCK TITANS & STORM…

    Final Four from both would be too sweet!

  3. pale on November 18th, 2009 11:23 pm

    so…wheres kyler spears? that kid was a beast.

  4. Gshl spectator on November 19th, 2009 12:10 am

    kyler spears was not good at all… how was he a beast, stats???

  5. Really? on November 19th, 2009 8:01 am

    I like the players of the year awards. I think it is very fitting for the season. I watched that 41 a couple times and I thought to myself that he was probably the best defender I had seen all year. Nice job by all!

    I am curious about a couple players on the list and wanted to know what others think. Why is Komivi Akengue 1st team RB and not the RB from Skyview??? Who is C.J. Hatchett? Doesn’t Heritage have 4 or 5 better players at that spot?

    Not bad picks!

  6. pale on November 19th, 2009 10:49 am

    I think Kyler spears deserved a second team spot that kid may not have had all the stats but he played hard all the time and was an obstacle for everyones offense.

  7. Russell on November 19th, 2009 12:36 pm

    I think that it is sad that they made Austin Dodge share the title of offensive player of the year. I agree that grayson is a great player, just not this year. I wish them both the best of luck.

  8. Dirty Harry on November 19th, 2009 12:42 pm

    pale….I think what you and others need to understand is these All League selections are made by the head coaches of all the 4A teams in the league. They pretty much know what player(s) were really an obstacle prior, during and after games. They watch tons of film to prepare for other teams in the league so they do see who is getting the job done. Maybe if they solely gave out All League awards for just “playing hard” many others would also be considered but that’s not the case. Spears was not a factor in games or a major concern to opposing teams or he would of been listed. The 4A GSHL coaches have spoken….maybe Mr. Spears thinks he’s a little better than what he really is…in hindsight maybe he should have played better or worked harder in the off-season…just a thought?

  9. GSHLFaNatic on November 19th, 2009 12:50 pm

    Great QB’s this year! If Garrett played for Skyview this year instead of Dodge he may of put up the same or better #’s….could we say the same for Dodge if he was at Heritage? No disrespect as they are both great players but Skyview had a heck of a supporting cast…

  10. Russell on November 19th, 2009 1:02 pm

    Well I would say let’s see what spears does on Dec 5th in the tacoma dome. Ya that’s right I said they will go all the way. Also Matt Spears is going to look good doing it! GOOOO STORM!

  11. swfannn@the couv on November 19th, 2009 1:25 pm

    dirty Harry
    I agree with you about spears, he did not work out very hard in the off season, and that goes for alot of the mountain view players.
    the coach needs to come down on them next year even if he has to lose a few slackers and they had alot of slackers.
    i know they were a huge disappointment to the football program.
    All you had to do was go to a mtv game , players on the sideline talking to the cheerleaders, players that were not elgible yelling profanaty to the players on the field, bush league. the coach was not aware of what was happening behind his back but some parents did and a few of us gshl fans.
    i heard from a few teachers at mountain view that they had to keep some of these players or they would not have enough players for a team and that is sad.
    but back to the point those guys at mtv did not work very hard i saw them practice often i live around the corner.
    i walked around the track in the summer and saw them lift weights and
    run ,it was not working out but just wasting time just showing up.
    maybe not even showing up i never saw but a hand full of kids

  12. Cameron from Camas on November 19th, 2009 2:40 pm

    Coaches vote on league performance and Spears was hurt during league, correct? So him not making it is a no brainer. The Dodge Grayson thing could be debated forever. Grayson played on the second place team and had about 600 yards rushing in league and about 1500 passing. Not to mention about 18 tds to 2-3 int’s. Dodge’s numbers are half that or below par for league. The true QB is Grindy.

  13. Just Sayin' on November 19th, 2009 3:08 pm

    hmmm…I hadn’t heard THOSE Mountain View fun facts, thank you swfann

  14. lolz on November 19th, 2009 6:37 pm

    Didnt Grayson have like 100 more passing attempts then Dodge though? So obviously he is going to have more yards! My opinion is teams reflect the leadership of said team. And apparently Dodge had his team ready to go every week and i dont think you can say the same for Grayson (no offense to him). Hes a great player but in this case it seems like Dodge had the better season.

    A perfect example in this case would be Kobe Bryant (dodge) vs. Lebron James (grayson). Lebron seems like he has all the talent, but Kobe is the one the one winning the championships (regardless of their surrounding talent).

  15. Jason of Camas on November 19th, 2009 7:02 pm

    why does it seem mt view gets no respect at all ? This years picks were good, but why wasn’t Matt Spears or Andrew White not picked on first team O.

  16. Union Proud on November 19th, 2009 7:52 pm

    Grayson had around a 80 percent completion ratio in league while Dodge teetered around 60 percent. So there goes that theory.

  17. Football spectator on November 19th, 2009 8:06 pm

    Umm pretty sure dodge is at 28 td’s right now. And i dont think you can dwell too much on completion percentage because i saw a lot of dropped balls from both teams.

  18. Friday Night Fan on November 19th, 2009 8:14 pm

    Good luckSTORM and the other GSHL teams!

    According to Max Preps stats:

    Dodge 186 -248 .75% 2808 Yards. 255.3 per game 30 TD 3 int. passer rating of 146.

    Go TEAM!!!

  19. MVHS athlete on November 19th, 2009 9:46 pm

    your really talking about mt views work right now? you think that we dont work hard in the winter and in the spring. i can bet that Andrew white, one of our recievers, can lift a whole lot more then a lot of linebackers in our league. so dont even come in with that kind of stuff. Yes this year was a disappointment…but not do to our strength or speed or any of that…it was because we didnt have experience in finishing games. we didnt know what it was like to pull off a close game. examples include heritage skyview and glencoe. It was not a matter of strength or hard work, it was a matter of experience

  20. pale on November 19th, 2009 10:16 pm

    dirty harry, please dont bring the players themselves into this you dont know what spears thinks (or unless you know him personally) so dont say he thinks he is all great when you dont know that.

  21. football4life on November 20th, 2009 3:57 am

    FRIDAY NIGHT FAN: I went to max preps like you said, however I noticed that it said in Austin Dodges last game ” 30 comp 15 att comp %2.00″ sorry to say that is impossible. Anyone who is 30 for 15 with a % 2.00 would have a great QB rating and %. So lets talk apples to apples. 10 games.

    Grayson: .732% ratting 110. comp 238 325 att. 2720 yards 18TD 5INT. Rush: 117 for 958 YDS 9TD. Receiving: 2 for 22YDS 1TD

    Dodge: .669% ratting 120. 156 comp 233 att. 2592 yards 28TD 3INT. Rush: 13 for 116YDS 1TD. Receiving: 0

    I have had the honor to watch both of these kids and watch videos of them both. Dodge had a great year with a great staff. But lets just tell it as it is. Grayson had more completions then Dodge had attempts. Dodge was protected by his line as indicated by the amount of time rushing and film. You guys can debate this stuff until your blue in the face. But facts are facts and the biggest facts are that Grayson is the all time GSHL record holder for yards, he is being highly recruited and is ranked #21 in the nation among dual threat QB. Dodge is not ranked and is not being recruited. If he is there is no information about it any place on the net.

    I wish Dodge the best and hope he can play for a D-2 school someplace. Grayson I am excited about what other offers you will be receiving in the next month and can’t wait to watch you play D-1 in the years to come.

  22. Scoutariffic on November 20th, 2009 10:48 am

    Looking at all of the qb’s this season only one is a real game changer, Grayson. None of the others could of suited up for Heritage and “willed” them into a second place team. If Grayson plays for any other school (Camas, Skyview, Union, Mt. View, ) they all of the sudden became even better then they are now. Throw out the passing comparisons and leadership because that can be debated for days, the kid can flat out run and will take a good hit. He was a game away from a 3,000 yard passing and 1,000 yard rushing season. The kid has heart and will continue to get better.

  23. turf tough on November 26th, 2009 12:15 pm

    You can debate individuals all night, but the game is played by 11 individuals playing as a cohesive unit. All of the players mentioned in here are good football players. Why don;’t we celebrate their achievements and stop trying to compare and decide who is best, the coaches have already decided that. Congratulations to all of the young men that were selected to these teams.

  24. SHS fan from EWU on November 26th, 2009 1:21 pm

    Lol Austin Dodge is playing in the State Semi Finals on Saturday and I am going to cheer him and the the whole Skyview on to the Championship game. Who cares who is better on paper.

    Go STORM!!!

    Go UNION,

    Its all GSHL this year thanks to 2 incredible TEAMS woo hoo!!!

  25. the man himself on November 28th, 2009 8:45 pm

    what happend to ben lyons (#12 heritage) the best wr in the 4a gshl and he dident get anything he was ranked highly in state in receaveing yards but yet somehow he is not all leauge worthy i really dont get that.

  26. hellatrickplays on November 30th, 2009 10:09 am

    lane sari should be mvp

  27. kick-the-field-goal on December 1st, 2009 10:05 am

    If Kelso woulda beat Heritage sari woulda been MVP for sure, he ran amazing this year despite Kelso playing in the 4a league when they definatly belong in the 3a

  28. player-90 on February 19th, 2010 12:29 pm

    lane sari deserves way more then a lot of these kids. he works harder then anyone in 4A. im sure if he was QB he would get a lot more attention too. But i guess only being a dominate running back only gets you on the list. Watch some film on him and you know that he is MVP status

  29. gogetem on February 23rd, 2010 7:23 am

    works harder? I play with Grayson, and I can tell you- and anyone who knows him will tell you- nobody works harder.

  30. Heritage fan on July 30th, 2010 9:15 am

    CJ Hatchett was a really good Wr he had the most touchdownns and second in yards behind Ben if it wasent for his injury he might have done alot better.
