The Valley League boys basketball coaches placed Fallbrook High School junior Joel Calhoun on the all-league second team.
Calhoun was the only member of the Warriors’ team to receive all-league recognition.
“Joel did a great job,” Fallbrook coach Ryan Smith said.
Calhoun was Fallbrook’s primary scorer during the 2018-19 season, which included a 1-9 Valley League record as part of a 1-25 overall figure, and he also usually defended the opponent’s best offensive player.
“He never complained,” Smith said. “He’s a leader. He does the full job.”
As the Warriors’ primary offensive threat, he was the target of other teams’ defensive strategies.
“He did a great job to have to deal with defenses that keyed on him to keep him from scoring,” Smith said.
Calhoun was also on the Valley League second team for 2017-2018, and last year he was also Fallbrook’s only all-league player.
“Just proud of him for getting second-team all-league the second year in a row,” Smith said.
