Yucaipa High School recently announced its male and female nominees for the annual Ken Hubb’s award. Each school in San Bernardino County nominates a boy and a girl. In a normal year, an overall winner for each would be announced. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no overall winner this year. Athletes are selected on their athletic accomplishments, and their character.

The two nominees for YHS are Esperanza (Espy) Coe, and David Fisher.

Here are a list of Coe’s accomplishments in softball:

• All CIF first team: 10th grade

• All League first team: ninth, 10th, 11th grade

• Citrus Belt League MVP: 10th, 11th grade

• Selected for Puerto Rican 18 under National Team

On top of her athletic accomplishments, Coe is active in her church, and a member of several different clubs on campus. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, she led her team with a 13-3 record as a pitcher, and the team was ranked No. 1 in CIF Division 2. She likely would have been All CIF, All League, and League MVP as a senior had the season continued. She will be attending Alabama A & M on a softball scholarship in the fall.

Here are a list of Fisher’s accomplishments in football:

• All League first team: 12th grade

• All County: 12th grade

• Senior All Star for two different organizations.

• Team MVP: 12th grade

• Top three all time in receptions, yards, and touchdowns for season and career in YHS history.

On top of his athletic accomplishments, Fisher has been a part of the leadership group for the football team as a junior and senior. He was also a captain both seasons. He was also a member of the YHS champions club, with a GPA over 3.0, perfect attendance at practices, no discipline issues and 20 hours of community service. He will be attending Dixie State on a football scholarship in the fall.
