Incline football: Highlanders honored with All-League selections
Nine Incline football players received selections to the Northern Division III All-League team, while four were named to the All-State team.
The awards were determined by the league’s coaches.
Senior Tanner Quenneville, who did not play high school football until his senior year, led the Highlanders with selections to both the All-League first team and All-State second team at two different positions.
Quenneville made the All-League first team as a return specialist and a defensive back, and was named to the All-State second team at both positions. He also took over at quarterback for the Highlanders after senior starter Kelsey Philpott went down with an injury midway through the season.
Senior four-year starter Jerry Sanchez — whose high school career was highlighted by a 47-yard field goal as a sophomore — was voted to the All-League and All-State first team as a punter. He was voted to the All-League second team as a kicker behind Yerington’s Daniel Sciarani.
Senior Joey Stranzl, who returned to the gridiron after sitting out his sophomore and junior years, was selected to the All-League first team and All-State second team at tight end, as well as the All-League second team as a defensive lineman.
Senior Owen Graffis also made the All-League first team at running back and was named to the All-State second team at the same position.
The following Highlanders were voted to the All-League second team: Senior Brandon Judd as an offensive lineman, and seniors Michael Guymon and Charlie Zendner at linebacker.
Guymon also received honorable mention recognition at running back, as did Conor Nix at defensive back and Jessie Segoviano on the offensive line.
Yerington, which went undefeated en route to a third consecutive state championship, cleaned up among the highest honors. Yerington’s Reese Neville was voted MVP, Dakota Aiazzi was Offensive Player of the Year, Michael Monahan was Defensive Player of the Year and Cody Neville was Coach of the Year. Jeff Oaks of Battle Mountain was Defensive Player of the Year.
