Eds. note: The Herald's All-Area teams and Player of the Year are selected by Herald staff based on first-hand observations and voting by area coaches and fans.
PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Josh Bartley
Sr., M/F, Archbishop Murphy

COACH OF THE YEAR
Dan Pingrey
After a disappointing finish to 2012 and losing a number of seniors off of that team and promising freshman John Magnus, the Panthers head coach helped guide his team to a state semifinal appearance and a fourth-place trophy.
ALL-AREA TEAMS
First Team
Forward
Juan Machuca
Sr., Snohomish
The Panthers forward scored 11 goals and had six assists to lead Snohomish to a district title and a fourth-place finish at state.
Miguel Medina
Sr., Mariner
The Marauders' offense began and often ended with this senior striker. Medina scored 18 goals and assisted on 14 others as Mariner won the Wesco 4A South and advanced to the state tournament.
Midfielder
Josh Bartley
Sr., Archbishop Murphy
Whether setting up goals with fancy footwork or long throw-ins, this Wildcat attacking midfielder assisted on 20 Archbishop Murphy goals and scored 17 himself as the Wildcats won the Cascade Conference and advanced to state.
Coach's comment: "Leader on and off the field. Great playmaking ability." -- Mike Bartley
Jalen Crisler
Sr., Archbishop Murphy
This Wildcats midfielder did a lot of everything for the Wildcats -- most of it in the air. The rangy senior had 18 of his 22 goals on restarts and was a force on the backend of Murphy's defense, earning the Cascade Conference Defensive MVP award.
Coach's comment: "He's a great in the air and distributor of the ball and a dead ball specialist." -- Mike Bartley
Cristhian Robles
Sr., Mariner
Despite being a goalkeeper for an Olympic Development Team and the Northwest Nationals select team, this Marauders midfielder anchored Mariner's defense this year as the Marauders won the Wesco South 4A league title.
Coach's comment: "He can play every position. He pretty much does what you tell him to do. He's very understanding. He knows the game. I keep on telling him every time I don't know why he wants to just play keeper. He could be the best center mid in the state." -- Vince DeSimone
Tyler Mayer
Sr., Snohomish
Along with Machuca, this tall attacking midfielder scored 16 goals and had nine assists in leading Snohomish to a Wesco 4A North, a district title and a spot in the state semifinals.
Defender
Blake Crutchfield
So., Snohomish
The sophomore defender not only anchored a strong Panthers defense but he was a master at the long throw-in that set up a number of goals, including two key goals in a state playoff victory over Camas.
Chris Mitalas
Sr., Mountlake Terrace
The Hawks defender was the undisputed leader of Terrace's defense and also used his height to score three goals on restarts this season.
Logan Flem
Sr., Stanwood
This Spartans senior could have played anywhere on the field but gladly accepted where he was needed most: on defense. He helped lead a defense that gave up just 20 goals after surrendering 56 last year. He will head to Molde Folkenhogskole in Norway for school and to play soccer.
Cobi Weyers
Sr., Archbishop Murphy
This Wildcats defender led a defense that averaged 0.82 goals against this season. He was voted MVP of the defense by his teammates and assisted on six goals.
Goalkeeper
Brennen Countryman
Sr., Lake Stevens
The Vikings goalkeeper record six shutouts and had a 1.25 goals against average for the season.
