Jamie Young of St. Mary’s was named SCL coach of the year after guiding the Crusaders to the state playoffs for the first time in 22 years.

Senior lineman Nash O’Hara and junior receiver/kicker Ben Dunn earned first-team all-SCL recognition in two areas for Cascade Christian, while St. Mary’s senior receiver/linebacker Bryce Bramscher also was named to the offensive and defensive first team.

Also on the first team for Cascade Christian were senior Zack Fralich (running back), senior Carson Cochran (receiver), junior Cristian Flores Alatorre (linebacker) and junior Jacob Crowl (defensive back).
