Recognized as All-Area Regional All-Star this season, Fagan helped lead Vero Beach to the Conference and District Championships this season. Fagan also was named the 2011 team Most Valuable Player of the Vero Beach American Legion Post 39 senior team. That team won District Championships in 2012 and 2013.
