The West Central Conference football champion Smith-Cotton Tigers are cleaning up in post-season awards. S-C picked up 15 all-conference honors and Smith-Cotton coach Ryan Boyer was named Coach of the Year following S-C’s 9-1 season which included going 6-0 in conference play.

Four S-C players were honored on both sides of the ball. Carlton Homan and Noah Aziere were named all-conference at running back and linebacker. Austin Jaekel was honored for his work at center and at defensive end. Jack Marsh was named all-conference at nose guard and offensive tackle.

On offense, the conference honored senior quarterback Caleb Reed and wide receiver Blake Jackson as well as junior guard John Carney. Wide receiver Corey Bond received an honorable mention.

On defense, Jayce Simoncic and Jake McFail were named all-conference in the secondary and Ricky Warren was named as an all-conference linebacker.

In his second season at the helm, Boyer was named Coach of the Year.

“I am honored to receive coach of the year, but I give all the credit to my hard-working staff,” he said in a press release. “Along with putting in long hours seven days a week to make sure that our kids are prepared every day, our staff is very committed to building strong relationships with our players.”
