The name of the game in soccer is to find the back of the net, and this year’s Deseret News boys soccer Players of the Year were among the best in the state at making sure their teams were among the most dangerous attacking teams in the state.
They did more than their own fair share of finding the back of the net too.
Here’s a look at the 2022 Deseret News boys soccer Players of the Year.
Corner Canyon’s Samir Cuevas is the Deseret News 6A Player of the Year.

Samir Cuevas, Corner Canyon, MF, Jr.
Anyone who watched Corner Canyon play this season, it was pretty clear who the best player on the field was — junior Samir Cuevas. He can dominate a game like few players and it showed on the scoresheet as he recorded 12 goals and eight assists and led Corner Canyon to the Region 4 title.
Like many top seeds in 6A, Corner Canyon’s playoff run was a short one as it lost in penalties in the second round to Cinderella Herriman.
Cuevas assisted on Corner Canyon’s only goal in that playoff loss.
“Samir Cuevas is a brilliant player and natural goal scorer. He is every defender and goal keepers’ nightmare. He will do whatever it takes to put the ball in the net,” said Corner Canyon coach Drew Van Wagenen. “His effort is relentless and his technical ability to dribble through defenders, break down defenses and finish difficult goal-scoring opportunities is astounding. He is always the most dangerous player on the field.”
Cuevas scored a goal or recorded an assist in 11 of 17 games for the Chargers, including a run late in the season in which he scored two goals in three straight games which helped clinch the region title.
