Any time a player does something no one else has ever done, then that player deserves player of the year recognition.
Thus Tanner Trosin of Folsom is an obvious choice for MaxPreps California Division II State Player of the Year.
Trosin became the first quarterback in state history to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a season. His 5,185 yards blew away the former record of 4,907, set by David Koral of Pacific Palisades in 1999, by close to 300 yards.
Furthermore, Trosin's 527 attempts, which tied with El Toro's Conner Manning for the most in the state this year, tied the state record while his 360 completions broke the previous mark.
Trosin also accounted for 69 touchdowns on the season, the second most in state history behind last year's Folsom quarterback Dano Graves, while his 6,364 yards of total offense is also easily a state record.
Trosin edges out Manning and Concord running back Olito Thompson for the prize. Manning set the single-season passing mark in Orange County while Thompson broke the Northern California record for most yards rushing in a single season.
