Mazama dominates Skyline all-stars

As reward for its undefeated regular season and Skyline Conference championship, the Mazama football team dominated the Skyline all-star selections.

John Mathis, the Vikings' ninth-year head coach, was named coach of the year by his peers.

Senior running back Seth Morehouse and senior linebacker Matt Starley were voted the offensive and defensive players of the year, respectively, by Skyline coaches.

Mazama, which finished 10-1 after a quarterfinal loss to Ontario in the Class 3A state playoffs, gobbled up five spots on the first-team offense and five more on the first-team defense.

Starley, a 6-foot-4, 190-pounder, earned first-team honors at tight end and placekicker in addition to his defensive achievements.

Phoenix had just one first-team selection, senior wide receiver Martin Gonzalez.

After Rogue River made the playoffs for the first time since 1979, the Chieftains placed two players on the first-team offense and three on defense.

Senior guard Ryan Vann and senior running back Nick Bashans were the offensive representatives; junior lineman Justin Schram, senior defensive back Tim Love and junior punter Matt Branch claimed spots defensively.

A complete listing of the Skyline all-stars follows.
