After earning a spot on second-team All-Met as a junior, Shuler put together a banner senior season, averaging 15.1 points, 4.5 assists and 2.0 steals in leading the No. 10 Rough Riders to the DCIAA and DCSAA titles. Shuler is committed to play at LaSalle next season.

Trier’s award comes in his first season playing at Montrose Christian after transferring from Oklahoma City, where he was home schooled. Ranked by ESPN as the nation’s No. 23 junior, Trier averaged 24.9 points to lead the Mustangs to a 20-5 record, the National Christian Schools Athletic Association Division I championship and the No. 9 spot in The Post Top 20 final rankings. The 6-foot-5 guard, who holds offers from Georgetown, Oklahoma State and N.C. State, among others, is the sixth Montrose Christian player to win the award.
