Paul Laliberte

School: Hayden High School

Year: Senior

Age: 18

Height: 5 feet, 11 inches

Why: In Hayden’s biggest game of the year, a 62-51 win against Vail Christian on Friday, Laliberte stuffed the stat sheet. He finished with 19 points, six assists, four rebounds and two steals. He helped the Tigers to a 10-2 overall record and a No. 9 ranking in Class 2A, the first time Hayden has been in The Denver Post rankings this season.

Quotable: “One of the things he’s doing a good job of overall is distributing the ball. That’s something that has got better as the year has gone on. His decision making, when he has it and when he doesn’t, has gotten better.” — Tigers coach Mike Luppes
