The race for Broward County Players of the Year (PotY) is neck & neck for both boys & girls!
BOYS: RJ Moore
For the second consecutive season the Aquinas teammates & friends square off. Make no mistake about senior & 3 year captain Moore being the heart, soul and core of the Raiders. In 2011 he was chosen as SoFlo Water Polo Blog's Player of the Year only to be upset for the 2012 title by the then freshman Goldenberg. Goldenberg's dominating style of play & gaudy numbers will make him hard to overlook. Both athletes split the newspapers PotY in 2012. This one will come down to the wire.
Also in the running is Cooper City magician Brandon "Boom" Bogumill.
GIRLS: Nikki Jacobs
When SoFlo's 2012 Player of the Year Samantha Khalil graduated the door flew wide open for Jacobs & Israels in 2013. Jacobs the captain of Deerfield Beach, is a 4 year starter and the respected leader of the Bucks. Interviewed opposing Broward County coaches called her "a stellar field player" and "outstanding". Israels also a 4 year starter and captain at Westminster Academy racked up outrageous scoring numbers in her first 3 seasons. Due to several WA blowouts in the 2013 season her playing time & goals have diminished slightly. Israels has been the newspapers PotY the past few seasons.
Also in the running is Stoneman Douglas scoring machine Julia Sadar.
