Central made another convincing run to the MAFC White Division championship this season, and has been rewarded with a throng of all-conference selections.

The Rebels, who enter a Class 3 state quarterfinal contest against Lutheran South on Friday, landed 12 First Team selections while taking away three specialized awards.

Quarterback Jace Bland was named Offensive MVP, and three-year starting linebacker Jake Glenn was chosen Defensive MVP.

Junior left guard Tanner Friend picked up Offensive Line MVP honors, and joined Central teammates Ethan Weiss and Holden Mayberry as First Team linemen.

Four Rebels – leading receiver Will Hopkins, Glenn, Mayberry and Friend – were recognized as First Team performers on both sides of the ball.

Senior running back Tyreece Welch and junior linebacker Evan Sidebottom also made the First Team.

Ste. Genevieve finished second in conference play, and senior receiver/defensive back Gabe Greminger led his team as a two-way First Team selection.

Junior nose tackle Isaac Boyd was chosen as Defensive Line MVP, and breakout running back Darien Brown represents the lone freshman on the premier list.

Other First Team players from Ste. Genevieve are offensive lineman Clayton Vaughn and flex player Luke Brewster, whose season was prematurely ended by injury.

Potosi placed outside linebacker Ryan Coleman, offensive lineman Kobe Boyer and punter Zach Haynes on the MAFC White First team.

Mike Parrish and Noah Korokis appear twice on the First Team for Fredericktown, and Colten Jordan is the all-conference kicker.

North County obtained several honors within the MAFC Red Division after surging to an 8-3 record and falling only behind Hillsboro in the league standings.

Two-time First Team honorees include lineman Brenden McClure, Kolten Poorman at quarterback and punter, and Cole Ziegler at receiver and defensive back.

Offensive lineman Pacen DeClue, slash Briley Smith, defensive tackle Devon Mason and linebackers Tucker Smith and Jaelen Reed are also First Team players for the Raiders.
