Truckee football: Macken voted All-State Defensive Player of the Year

The Northern 3A had to endure Ryan Macken’s smashmouth style of play the past three seasons. This year, with Truckee advancing to the 3A state championship for the first time since 2005, the South got a full taste as well.

After Northern 3A coaches voted Macken Defensive Player of the Year shortly after Truckee’s championship campaign, Southern coaches awarded the linebacker with the same honor atop the All-State team.

Sharing the honor is Jake Pearce of defending state champion Moapa Valley, which led the voting with four of the top awards. (Brad Weiss was voted MVP, Tyler Lomprey Lineman of the Year and Brent Lewis Coach of the Year.)

Besides Macken’s Defensive Player of the Year for his linebacker play, senior Ryan Roberts was voted onto the first team at wide receiver. Dylan Crosby ” the North’s All-League Lineman of the Year ” made the first team at offensive guard and defensive tackle, while Travis Dwyer was voted to the first team at offensive tackle and C.J. Ackerman at safety.

Senior Robert Raber was voted to the All-State second team at running back, while Flynn Rice was voted in at tight end, Ackerman as a kick returner, Jackson Weed at linebacker, Cory Sharp at cornerback and Justin Vosburgh as a punter.

Earning honorable mention recognition were Vosburgh at quarterback, Jordan Deiro at running back, Ryan Zusy at center, Dwyer at defensive end, and Ryan Cook at linebacker.
