Bushman, who is the most prominent three-sport athlete in the region, appears to have a worthy replacement. Rio Rico High School’s Sean Fanning completed his freshman season rushing for 448 yards and passing for 837 yards, despite missing about half of the season with a broken collarbone. Fanning is now playing basketball for the Hawks, and projects as a baseball player of note; he was part of the Rio Rico All-Star team that won the Junior Little League national championship last summer.
