Members of the Coal Ridge and Roaring Fork high school football teams were well represented when the Class 2A Western Slope League North all-league football team was released recently.
In all, both teams each had eight players who received all-league honors. The award winners were determined by the league’s coaches following the conclusion of the regular season, then released following the completion of the season by each team in the league.
Coal Ridge also had an individual award given to head coach Kyle Sager, who was named the league’s co-Coach of the Year with Aspen’s Ryan Treice following the Titans’ 4-5 season. Coal Ridge went winless in 2013, though it did earn a victory by forfeit against Grand Valley during the offseason.
Four members of Coal Ridge’s football team received first-team honors. Among them were senior running back Jared Duran, senior offensive and defensive lineman Brandon Gray, sophomore lineman Jesse Duplesys and senior linebacker/running back Max Bettle.
The Titans had four players — Tyler Sheerin, Colton Ellis, Zen Gross and Nathan Nelson — who were second-team award winners.
Roaring Fork, which finished the season with a 2-7 overall record, had three first-team recipients. Those included junior running back and linebacker Sergio Vega, junior wide receiver and defensive end Conrado Delores and senior wide receiver and kick returner Roy Benge. The other five Roaring Fork award winners — Tanner Spence, Jake Rusby, Max Slack, Aldo Pinela and Eduardo Martinez — were named to the second team.
Battle Mountain won the league championship in its first year in the league, thus earning the most all-league award winners. Moffat County earned the league’s automatic state playoff spot, however, since the Huskies were only able to qualify for the Class 3A state playoffs.
