The sting of a loss in their final game was helped a bit by district coaches voting a large number of Blue Demon football players to the All-District team.
Senior Nathan Crall received the rare honor of being placed at two positions on the first team. He earned first team honors at receiver and was named the first team kickoff/punt returner. Joining Crall on the first team offense was junior Doug Flattery at offensive line and Nathaniel Wynn at punter.
Defensively, Albia placed Luke Bossard on the first team as a defensive back, Beau Leshen as a linebacker, Dawson Hermsen as a defensive lineman and Gage Wilson as a utility player.
Albia had a number of players on the second team as well, including Blake Chance, Albia’s sophomore quarterback, Wilson as a receiver and Jer McAninch as a defensive lineman.
Shawn Good earned honorable mention as a linebacker and Hermsen was honorable mention as an offensive utility player.
Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont also did well with All-District players. Wyatt Klyn was first team receiver, Brandt Hughes first team offensive line and Trey Moore first team offensive utility. Ryan Adams was first team linebacker on defense, Gabe Larkin first team defensive line. Isaiah Smith was second team wide receiver, Logan McCrea was second team offensive line and Clay Johnston was second team linebacker.
