John Wooden Award … Again!

Valley Torah Freshman Johnny Dan won the coveted John R. Wooden award. Johnny was chosen for this award out of over 6,000 other CIF-SS Division V players This is the second time that a VTHS student received this award.

The John R. Wooden Award is given to the top athlete in each basketball division for boys and girls basketball. It is one of the most prestigious awards given in high school and collegiate basketball.

The 2020 John R. Wooden High School Player of the Year Award winners are: Stanford commit and USA Basketball player, Ziaire Williams of Sierra Canyon High School (Chatsworth); Arizona State commit and USA Basketball player, Josh Christopher of Mayfair High School (Lakewood); UC Irvine commit and CIF Player of the Year, Andre Henry of St. Francis High School (La Canada Flintridge); Highly touted 2021 recruit, Koat Keat of Renaissance Academy (Altadena); … and freshman, Johnny Dan of Valley Torah!

It is the second time that a Valley Torah student received this prestigious award—Aaron Liberman received it in 2011. No other Yeshiva has had any John R. Wooden Award winners.

Alongside winning the John R Wooden award, Johnny Dan completed a triple crown of sorts by being selected unanimous First Team All CIF selection alongside teammate David Paz and a unanimous First Team All League selection for the Heritage League, which sent 3 teams to the California State Boys Basketball tournament, alongside teammates Benji Dan and Alon Yehezkel.
