The East Valley has hundreds of athletes who will move on to play college sports, a few might eventually reach the professional ranks. Needless to say, paring down a list of the top players from the 2012-13 school year was no easy task. However, there were five males that stood out above the rest, either for their complete dominance in one sport or their ability to compete at the highest level in different ones.

Pat Herrera, who resigned last week after an ultra-successful stint coaching baseball at Desert Ridge, has been hired at Skyline.
