Vikings On Display

Winfield High School senior defensive back Chance Price (12), senior inside linebacker Ace Singvongsa (6) and junior defensive back Braden Ledford (4) take down Labette County receiver Noah Yoeman earlier this season. Price and Singvongsa were both named to the all-league first-team defense, while Ledford was second-team offense and honorable mention defense.

Winfield High School earned 17 spots on the Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division III football team, as voted by league coaches.

Not bad for a division that was dominated by Class 4A State semifinalist McPherson and State quarterfinalist Buhler. Both teams fell to Andover Central in the KSHSAA Class 4A State playoffs.

Winfield senior lineman Zach Phillips was named to the first-team offense.

Senior linebacker Ace Singvongsa, senior interior lineman Ty Bonesteel and senior defensive back Chance Price were all named to the first-team defense, and senior Jake Kaufman was honored on the first-team special teams as a punter.

The all-league first-team offense consisted of six McPherson players and five Buhler players. Phillips was the only other player from any team on the first-team offense.

The Bullpups and Crusaders had five players apiece on the first-team defense. The Vikings were the only other team with a first-team defensive player, as well.

McPherson also had two of the three first-team players on special teams, with Kaufman receiving the other honor.

Winfield also placed seven players on the second team and had five receive honorable mention. Four Vikings made the second-team offense and two were named to the second-team defense, with one on special teams.

Senior quarterback KC Crandall was named to the second-team offense, joining senior tailback Nolan Foust, junior wide receiver Braden Ledford and lineman Dalton York.

The second-team defense was anchored by Kaufman at defensive end and senior linebacker Steele Morin. Freshman Austin Bryant was a second-team punter.

Kaufman earned all-league honors at three positions, including honorable mention at tight end.

Senior lineman Logan Roark joined Kaufman with honorable mention on offense.

Phillips received honorable mention as an interior lineman, joining defensive backs Foust and Ledford as two-way all-league players.

McPherson swept the individual awards. Quarterback Kaleb Hoppes was named Offensive Most Valuable Player and defensive end Cody Stufflebean was chosen Defensive MVP. Jace Pavlovich, who guided the Bullpups to a 5-0 record and the D-III title, was named Coach of the Year.

The AV-CTL D-II All-League football team has not been released because league member Andover Central is playing Saturday for the KSHSAA Class 4A State championship.
