The league had two Players of the Year (Seaside senior Ryan Hague and Banks senior Jacob Slifka), two Coaches of the Year (Marcus Roche of Banks and Bill Westerholm of Seaside), and two Defensive Players of the Year (Banks senior Jarred Evans and Seaside senior Stephen Snyder).
Banks led the way with five players on the all-league squad, while Seaside, Tillamook and Valley Catholic had four players apiece earn all-league honors.
