How can TJ Haws NOT be on the HS Male Athlete list?2014 Utah Mr

I agree on Haws being on this list. I personally would vote for Hone, he
recently won one national tournament in Virginia Beach and then the next week
took on the best again and took second. He took state four times in wrestling,
won the Reno Tournament of Champions, Super State, and The Rumble.
@ironrod Just to clarify, Haws was the mvp in the 2012 season,
Emery was the mvp last year
T.J. Haws was nominated by the committee, but declined the nomination because he
plans to leave immediately for a mission. The committee was unanimous in seeing
Haws as one of the state's best male prep athletes in 2013.
That says a lot about Haws and his character, good for him. If it wasn't
for Hone, I would support Haws as the choice. Great young men both.
Great list - there will always be arguments for others deserving recognition -
for example, trick play Olympus used to defeat Springville at the end of the
playoff game made Sports Center's top 10 for highlights - could be worthy
of discussion for the governor's list.
