Knights, Blackcats have large numbers on All Region teams

SIKESTON — The Southeast Missouri Sportswriters and broadcasters recently selected the Southeast Regional football teams which includes the seven MAAA schools in the Mississippi Area Football Conference.

Only first teams and honorable mentions were selected for Class 1, Class 2 and a combined Class 4 and 5 because of the smaller amount of schools involved. Class 3 received first and second teams and honorable mention due to it being the largest Class of schools in Southeast Missouri. Class 4 and 5 were combined due to there being only five schools between the two classes.

The Farmington Knights (9-1) had six players make the Class 4-5 first team. The North County Raiders placed two on the first team.

District winner Fredericktown Blackcats placed eight players between first and second teams in Class 3. The Ste. Genevieve Dragons and Park Hills Central Rebels had four players each, and the Potosi Trojans had three. Valle, the lone MAAA school in Class 1 had three players make the first team.
