Nine Stillwater County football players have received post-season honors for their solid performances during the regular season.

COLUMBUS

Two athletes were chosen to represent the Columbus Cougars on the Southern Class B All-Conference team.

Senior Dylan Raihl was selected as a second team wide receiver, and junior Tommy Campbell was a second team defensive end.

PARK CITY

The Panthers had three players designated All-Conference for the Class C 8-man Southern Division. Senior Connor McNeil was selected as a first team safety and as first team kicker. Austin Dennis, a junior, also received two selections – second team guard and second team defensive tackle. Rounding out the list is junior Troy Fiscarelli, with a second team defensive end selection.

Along with his two first team selections, McNeil also earned the chance to play in the Class C 8-man All-Star game. The game typically takes place in Butte at the beginning of June.

In addition to the All-Conference selections, Park City had 15 players who qualified for the Academic All-State list: Jacob Gauthier, Eyan Jordet, Mason Rathbun, John Wet-more, Tucker Johnstone, Ben Kessler, Canon Wicks, Dylan Bal, Colton Knutson, Garrett McMillen, Paden Mendenhall, Jim Wetmore, Jack Bernhardt, Tristen Johnstone, and McNeil.

According to the Montana Coaches Association, to earn Academic All-State for a fall sport, an athlete or manager must earn at least a 3.5 GPA for the first quarter, as well as a varsity letter in the sport.

ABSAROKEE

Simon Hanson represented the Huskies well on the 8-man Southern Division All-Conference list. The senior racked up four selections for his performance in all three phases of the game: first team kicker, first team punter, second team fullback, and second team inside linebacker.

Hanson was also chosen as an All-Star, giving him the opportunity to play in the 8-man All-Star game next summer.

REED POINT-RAPELJE

The three seniors leading the RPR Renegades football team this year all received post-season honors for their hard work and dedication.

Jeremy Boatman, Tristan Gieser, and Rory Markle were each named to the Class C 6-man Southern Division All-Conference team.

Gieser and Boatman were also selected as alternates for the 6-man All-Star game next summer.
