Rebedew, a senior, was named to the defense at linebacker. He was an allconference South Division first-team linebacker in 2016. Rebedew was selected the Resorters’ Most Valuable Player this past season.

Sesoko, a sophomore, was selected as a defensive lineman. He was an all-conference South Division honorable mention offensive and defensive lineman as a freshman.

Lopez-Lloyd, a freshman, was named to the offense at running back. He also played quarterback.

The Resorters’ other allleague picks are junior offensive lineman Bryce Sitko and sophomore linebacker Finn Shields who both earned second team honors.

“Troy had a great senior year. A solid player all four years but really flourished as the leader of the defense this year,” said Resorter head coach Josh Bardon.

“Troy’s size and ability to read a play took him to the ball on almost every play – making lots of big hits and on key downs.

“Our run defense was among the top of the conference for least yards given up and Troy was a huge key to that,” said Bardon.

Lopez-Lloyd ranked second in the conference in rushing with 286 yards in three games. He averaged 5.1 yards per carry and ran for two touchdowns.

“Raistlin had a great fresh- man year. He had a huge impact on our team is his first year – being our leading rusher and one of the top in the conference,” said Bardon.

“Raistlin is a hard-working and humble kid. His speed vision and relentless running style made him hard to take down.”

Lopez-Lloyd was Elkhart’s top rusher for the overall season with 713 yards in seven games.

“Yoshi has a motor that doesn’t quit. He isn’t the biggest defensive lineman out there but his strength and speed suit him well to chase the ball carrier or get after the QB,” Bardon observed.

“He made countless plays in the opponent’s backfield and had to be accounted for on every play. He was a huge part of our stout run-stopping defense.”

Senior receiver Brandon Williams of league champion Oakfield was named the conference’s Player of the Year. Jeff Supernaw, Wisconsin Heights head coach, was voted the Great 8 Coach of the Year. Wisconsin Heights finished second in the league at 2-1 and was 6-3 overall.

The unanimous first-team players are Williams, senior quarterback Eric Jacob and senior running back Eli Liebelt from Oakfield and junior defensive back Michael Rhatican from Abundant Life Christian/St. Ambrose (Madison). Williams was a unanimous pick at the special teams position on offense for his punt and kickoff returning.
