I can't beleive he didn't win the overall athlete of the year award. Not to take anything away from Kellen Moore, but Moore did win the football award as he should have. Overall in my mind is your accomplishments in multiple sports. Not too many athletes make three all conference teams anymore. James not only did this, but was also league MVP in both football and basketball, all state football and basketball by associated press, he was selected for both sports all state games, and won two state championships in Track. That sounds like more than enough criteria to win an overall athlete award. He also led Grandview to its first ever playoff wins in football, helped capture a fourth place team trophy in track, and led the basketball team in scoring, rebounding, and assists. I know I am definitely biased, but come on when do we ever see these kinds of accomplishments in a three sport overall athlete. Again, I do congratulate Kellen Moore, 66 touchdowns and a championship are impressive, and he definitely deserves the football award, but James Vela is definitely the 2005-2006 overall male athelte of the year in the Yakima Valley.
