California Area's versatile junior K.C. Zajicek was named to the Tri-County South All-Conference Team.

Frazier and Beth-Center dominated the Tri-County South All-Conference Team with nine and 10 players selected, respectively.

It should come as no surprise that the two teams led the way with the most picks as the Bulldogs won the conference crown for the fifth straight season while the Commodores finished second.

The Commodores (8-2) are represented on the team by seniors Ethan Weiser (WR/DB), Nate Zurich (TE/LB), Tim Carson (WR/DB) and Todd Pellick (OL/DL), juniors Hunter Patterson (QB/DB), Joe Horvath (OL/DL), Todd Pellick (OL/DL), Bret Poling (LB) and Cameron Roebuck (LB), and sophomore L.A. Ross (RB).

The conference coaches select a 53-player all-conference team that does not include a first or second team.

The Commodores enjoyed an 8-2 season and were led offensively by Ross, who rushed for 1,025 yards and 10 touchdowns, and Patterson, who threw for 984 yards and 14 TDs. Patterson also rushed for 220 yards and 9 scores.

Carson (23 receptions, 425 yards, 7 TDs) and Weiser (17-330, 2 TDs) were the team’s top two receivers. Zurich caught 5 TDs passes as a tight end.

Bentworth placed five players on the team and California had three.

Bentworth’s contingent included seniors Phillip Stahlman (WR/CB) and Dustin Carpenter (C/LB) and juniors Felix Hernandez (RB/DB), Ty Mitchell (WR/CB) and Ethan Tush (RB/LB).

Stahlman caught 34 passes for 454 yards and 4 TDs in the wide-open Bearcat offense under coach Ron Skiles while Mitchell caught 22 passes for 330 yards and 3 scores.

Hernandez had a team-leading 8 TDs rushing and receiving.

For the Trojans (2-8), senior Cameron Stish (TE/DE/LB), junior K.C. Zajicek (QB/WR/DB) and sophomore Tyler Rothfuss (WR/DB) made the team.

Zajicek, who played multiple positions for the Trojans during the season, was the team’s leading scorer with 9 TDs.

Mapletown veteran coach George Messich was named Coach of the Year by his peers.

Mapletown finished third in the standings.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
