The Missouri Football Coaches Association has released their All-State teams for the just concluded Football season. And, the successful Reeds Spring season has seen a record number of Wolves receiving attention. Three different Wolves were named to the various teams, that ties a record for the most in a single season.
Austin Bradfield gets named for the second straight year. The center was the centerpiece of the most dominant offensive line the school has ever seen. As a group they paved the way for the most prolific offensive season in school history. Bradfield received second team honors after being named to the third team a year ago.
Ben Moler gets the nod on the second team as well. Moler was a flat out tackling machine for the Wolves. The stud linebacker led the team in tackles and was seemingly always around the ball. If not for the fact that the defensive player of the year was from this same district, you have to wonder if Moler would not have been first team.
Kelly Newton was named to the third team. Newton not only broke the school rushing record, he smashed it and set a mark (1930) that could likely stand for a while. He also set a new mark for touchdowns.
Great to see so many kids get respect on a statewide level. When you consider that the Wolves fell short of getting out of districts that is nice accomplishment.
