PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Why chosen: Lipman (11-0) won the Class AAA boys title and led Brentwood to its second straight team title. He beat Tennessee's Matt Henson 6-3, 6-2 in the final. He is ranked 20th in the USTA boys 18s. It was a long journey to the top for Lipman, who lost to three-time state champion Sean Karl in the region final as a junior. A back injury shortened his sophomore year, and he was ineligible after transferring from BGA as a freshman.
College: Signed with Florida.
Quote: "It was probably harder to repeat (for the team title) considering we lost three seniors. (The individual title) meant a lot, especially since it took a couple of years to make it there. It was just kind of icing on the cake after winning the team championship."
Family: Mother, Lisa, and father, Howard. Brothers, Marshall, 26, and Ryan, 22; sister, Avery, 21. Beagle, Striker.
What's on your iPod? "It goes from country to hip hop and pop stuff. Keith Urban, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore."
Best high school sports moment: "Probably winning both state titles. They both meant a lot, but the team was a little bit sweeter."
Favorite athlete: Roger Federer.
Favorite food: Steak.
Least favorite part of practice: "Probably picking up the balls."

Athletic background: "Very low-level soccer when I was young. I gave it up when I was 9. At that point we went to a bigger field, and it wasn't my sport. I wasn't much into the team aspect."
Summer plans: "Ryan and I are going to France to play in tournaments over there for about five weeks. That's going to take up a big portion of my summer. We're extremely pumped for it. Neither of us have been to Europe and we've always wanted to do some traveling and kind of see the culture over there."

BOYS COACH OF THE YEAR
Why chosen: The first-year coach led Brentwood (18-1) to its second straight Class AAA title. The Bruins' Maxx Lipman won the singles championship. Jayne's oldest son, Will Jayne, and Michael Arguello captured the doubles championship.
Quote: "I was glad to be a part of it. Incredible. It was just a fantastic thing to step into something like that. It was already set up and ready to go, and I just kind of walked into it. The talent level at Brentwood is big enough that I think we really do have a chance to be back there again next year. "
