Bulldogs On Display

Arkansas City High School senior Max Shannon (66) and sophomore Taviahn Mack (59) were honored by AV-CTL D-II coaches with selection to the all-league first team. Shannon was named to the first-team as an offensive lineman, while Mack, who switched from fullback to the offensive line, received first-team honors as an interior defensive lineman.

Arkansas City took 12 places on the Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League Division II All-League football team, as voted by league coaches.

The Bulldogs struggled to a 2-6 record, 2-4 in league play when the regular-season ended. Though Ark City made another deep run in the KSHSAA Class 4A State playoffs, voting was conducted before the postseason.

Junior Max Shannon and sophomore Taviahn Mack both were named to the first team.

Senior Braiden Mattocks was the only two-way all-leaguer, taking both of Ark City’s second-team honors at two positions.

Eight Bulldogs received honorable mention.

League champion Maize South placed 21 players on the all-league team, six on the first team. Second-place Andover Central, which advanced to the KSHSAA Class 4A State championship game, earned 19 all-league honors, five on the first team.

Third-place Goddard-Eisenhower saw 16 all-league honors, three on the first team. Goddard had 14 honorees, six on the first team, while Andover placed 11, four on the first team. Valley Center, which tied Andover for last place at 1-5 in league play, saw nine players honored, one on the first team.

Andover Central wide receiver Xavier Bell was named Offensive Most Valuable Player. 

Three players shared Defensive MVP honors — linebacker Trey DeGarmo of Andover Central, and defensive backs Trevion Mitchell of Maize South and Chance Omli of Eisenhower.

Brent Pfeifer, who guided the Mavericks to the Class 5A State Sectionals, was named Coach of the Year.

Ironically, the Bulldogs were the only other league team other than Maize South and Andover Central to advance to the State Sectionals.

Shannon was named to the first team on the offensive line.

Mack, who switched from fullback to have a solid season on the offensive line, earned first-team honors as an interior defensive lineman.

Mattocks was named to the second team at tailback and linebacker.

Senior Andrew Schnackenberg earned honorable mention at tight end. Senior Nate Kessinger and junior Jarrett Brooks earned mention on the offensive line.

Senior linebackers Nicholas Bahm and Jamauri Jordan earned honorable mention, joining defensive backs Daigen Moulton, a senior, and junior Owen Bucher, with honorable mention on defense.

Senior kicker Tommy Pacheco also earned honorable mention.
