Senior Kyle Palmer has been named to the Providence Journal's First Team, All State for football, capping a terrific season that saw the Avengers in the Division III championship.
Carney Crawford, a junior, was named to the Second Team.
"This is a big deal for a Division III player, as most of those spots go to Division I kids," said Avenger coach John George. The Avengers made it to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2006, losing to the Middletown Islanders, 33-21.
"Kyle Palmer led the state in interceptions with 10. He consistently made big plays for us on both sides of the ball, at times when the team needed it most. Crawford rushed for 1,900 yards this season."
George said Bill Geary, who's been keeping stats for the team for 25 years and he has been around the program for 40 years, told him he couldn't remember a running back "EVER rushing for anything close to that many yards."
First Team: Kyle Palmer, Carney Crawford, Andrew Miner, Eric Lauro
Second Team: Brittain Conde, Duncan MacIntosh, Peter Hunziker, Alex Cleary
Honorable Mention: Brendan Higgins, Cameron Rocke
