Hilldale’s Campbell, last year’s Newcomer of the Year, joined Evitt on the team as a repeat selection. He was one of the state’s top receivers with 73 catches for 1,336 yards and 18 TDs and one of seven Hornets on the team.
Among the other Hornets, Vandiver was the top vote-getter among offensive linemen as was Dakota Holmes at cornerback. Defensive end Justin Sanders was runner-up on the line to Ivy and was joined by his Hornet bookend, C.J. Hunnicutt. Linebacker Hunter Olson also made the team. All of Hilldale’s selections were seniors.
Wagoner’s Roman Rodriguez, a junior, received the most votes among fullbacks. He was joined by two senior Bulldogs, defensive lineman Wyatt Probst, and safety Devin Hawkins, giving the 4A semifinalists five selections.
Vian also had five. Joining Tyler, Simon and Casey were sophomore offensive lineman Ty Andrews and senior safety Shamal Evans.
Despite a 3-7 mark, Muskogee had three make the team — Ivy, along with senior linebacker Ty-Chris Beasley and wide receiver Anthony King.
Stigler senior Seth Sandlin, another repeat selection to the team, moved from the athlete slot to quarterback this season. He was fourth in the MVP race and was joined by one of his targets, senior tight end Austan Drewry.
The athlete spot went to another quarterback this year, Checotah senior Caleb Knight, who was also outstanding at linebacker. Junior offensive lineman Ronnie Clayton, senior defensive lineman DeMarco Patterson and junior linebacker Hunter Collins gave the Wildcats four spots.
Nine years ago, Fort Gibson kicker Daniel Mielnik immigrated to this country from Poland. He was the top vote-getter at that position. Joining him were senior center Sheldon Smith, senior defensive lineman Grady Mosteller, junior linebacker Tristan Johnson, giving the Tigers four selections.
Eufaula senior Devon Siers, who had an area-best nine interceptions, was the top vote-getter among safeties. Offensive lineman Colton Walker, a senior, gave the Ironheads a pair of picks.
Sequoyah had a pair of selections, return specialist Nick Kingfisher and wide receiver Caisen Green. Porum and Tahlequah had one player each — the Panthers had running back Darren Bollman, a senior, and Tahlequah got junior linebacker Reese Davis.
