2019-20 Mt. Hood Conference boys basketball all-league selections
Clackamas junior forward Ben Gregg landed on the all-league first team, while junior guards Damon Erickson and Ryan Lewis were named to the second team after leading the Cavaliers to a 12-2 league record and a berth in the OSAA Class 6A playoffs.
Barlow senior guard Jesse White was named the Mt. Hood Conference's Player of the Year, and Barlow's Tom Johnson was named Coach of the Year after guiding the Bruins to a 13-1 record in league play and their first Mt. Hood title since the 2017-18 season and their first outright championship since 2005-06.
Central Catholic junior Darius Gakwasi, Barlow senior Even Inglesby, David Douglas senior Jermaine Robinson, and Sandy senior Pierce Roeder also was named to the all-league first team in voting by Mt. Hood coaches.
Gregg, the 6-9 forward who transferred to Clackamas after two years at 2A Columbia Christian, averaged 21.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game, and was the driving force behind a turnaround that made the Cavaliers a bonafide contender for the state title.
"I believe Ben is the best all-around player in the state," Cavaliers coach Cameron Mitchell said. "I haven't seen anyone who can score and pass the way he does. That's pretty rare."
