Blackner finished his junior season averaging 19 points per game, third-best in the state in 3A. His 53 3-pointers were a team high and tied for second in 3A.
Porter Miller was named to the Region 12 first team for the Falcons, and Joey Lambeth – who had 49 3-pointers on the season, including one in the final second that beat Richfield in the consolation round of the 3A state tournament – was named to the second team. Miller led all of 3A in rebounding with 9.1 per game.
“This recognition gives them a chance to do it again in Region 9,” Canyon View head coach Robbie Potter said. “Not many people get to be all-Region or MVP in multiple regions.”
Senior Abe Huxford received honorable mention on the all-Region 12 team.
The full Region 12 teams are:
First team: Aaron Clark (Juab, senior), Kyle Quinton (Carbon, senior), Miller, Spencer Steadman (North Sanpete, junior) and Stetson Southwick (Richfield, senior)
Second team: Lambeth, Gage Daugherty (Carbon, senior), Jamin Jensen (Carbon, senior), Shawn Taylor (N. Sanpete, junior) and Reggie Hinck (Richfield, senior)
