2012 All-Phoenix Prep Football Team: Jolly-good guys: Fort Gibson’s impact running back leads this year’s group of honorees


— The rest

Hildale, 4A semifinalist Wagoner and Stigler led in selections with five each.

Wagoner running back Lawrence Evitt (2,980 yards and 35 touchdowns) was third in the MVP voting. The junior made the team at running back. Joining him was offensive lineman Marcus Jones, linebacker T.J. Ponds (a repeat selection), defensive back Denton Bosco and Kerwin Thomas, who played in eight games before being lost with a shoulder injury, gaining the first Purple Heart designation since 2010.

Hilldale also had offensive lineman Trandon Boylan, linebacker Jamaul Cullom and Miles Jackson as a return specialist. Stigler added Colton Shearwood at wide receiver, Seth Sandlin as an all-purpose athlete and Ryan Echelle, the top vote-getter among defensive backs.

Fort Gibson had four players. Joining Gandara was Andrew Brestel on the offensive line, Ned Adair at tight end, and defensive lineman Jon Terronez.

Vian also landed Landon Decker as a defensive back, giving the Wolverines three selections. That’s also how many Sequoyah had as Brayden Scott was picked as quarterback, Tanner Sheets was chosen to the offensive line and Ryan Helsley was among the defensive backs picked.

Despite winning just one game, Muskogee had three on the team — two on the defensive line. Tramal Ivy was the top vote-getter on the defensive line by a narrow margin.  UCO-bound Dillon Rice also made it as did Preston Soper as punter. Rice is a repeat selection, Soper made it in 2010.

Checotah had two make the team — including the leading vote-getter at receiver in Deondre Owens, who also made the team for a second consecutive year. Denver Berry was among the defensive linemen chosen.

Warner, which posted a 10-0 regular season before falling in the second round of the Class A playoffs, got two Eagles on the squad. Luke Moses was tabbed as an offensive lineman and Justin Wright, a free safety, as a defensive back.

Keys also got a pair on the squad in linebacker Tyler Blankenship and kicker J.J. Ozturk.

Tahlequah running back Mason McMillan, Gore receiver Ben Smith and Haskell linebacker Britt Williams rounded out the squad.
