2018-19 All-Area Boys Basketball Coach of the Year: Tyler Jones, Preston
Preston continued its winning ways this season.
The Indians won a 4A District 4-5 title and were the 4A state tournament runners-up despite returning no starters from last season’s squad that rewrote the Idaho high school sports record books with a three-peat.
For that, Jones is the Journal’s 2018-19 All-Area Boys Basketball Coach of the Year.
The Indians finished the year 22-6, bowing out in the championship game against Idaho Falls. The Indians had two seniors on their team but still reached the state’s biggest state.
