Forced out as the head football coach at Eagle Point High in January, Jacob Schauffler wasn't sure what direction he would go in the early aftermath...
North Medford placed two players and South Medford one on the Southern Oregon Hybrid volleyball all-conference first team.
For the Black Tornado, senior libero Ashley Smith and senior outside hitter Emily Carlson were selected.
South Medford's Bree Polk, a senior, made the team as a middle.
League-champion Roseburg dominated the voting by the coaches, with senior setter Vanessa Bentley pulling down player-of-the-year honors and Bruce Myers being named coach of the year.
The Indians had five of the 10 first-team players.
