2019 National Sophomore of the Year Finalists

Hawaiian Devin Kahahawai is one of 31 vying to be National Sophomore of the Year

Below are
our 31 finalists for 2019 National HIGH SCHOOL Sophomore of
the Year. Our plan was for 30 but there was one more we just could not leave

Before we reveal the finalists, here’s a little bit about the
process: Beginning in mid-November and continuing through this morning, I asked
coaches across the country to nominate worthy candidates and to supply
statistics and a narrative in support.

The requirements
were steep: to be considered, a top sophomore had to make a “massive” impact on
her high school team and the state. “Massive” is a subjective term, but at
a minimum required that she be a varsity starter and have stats that were among
the team’s best and the state’s best. Playing on a team that won a state title,
advanced far in the state tournament and/or was nationally ranked was also
helpful. has received many
nominations to date, from which the 31 finalists were selected.

I want to stress that the recognition is based on HIGH
SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT in 2019, not future collegiate success. What matters is the
impact you had on your team and your state this past fall.

NOTE: there are still dozens of sophomores deserving of recognition in our Soph 79 that I have yet to hear about. Coaches only should immediately tell us about them at this link,, for inclusion in our top sophomore list.

The National Sophomore of the Year winner will be announced within the next month.
