The Associated Press Division I and II All-Ohio high school football teams were announced Monday night, with Kings honored with four selections.
Kings’ Andy Olds was named the Division II Coach of the Year after leading the Knights to a 12-1 record and the state quarterfinals.
“The award is a direct reflection on the players and coaches we have,” Olds said. “They work so hard and if it hadn’t been for them, we wouldn’t be where we’re at. It’s the achievement of a lifetime. I can’t stop smiling.”
Among the other Knights honored were second-team All-Ohio selections Jamire Westbrook, a senior running back, and defensive lineman Brady Vanover.
Vanover, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound defensive tackle, led the city with 16 sacks in the regular season. Westbrook was an all-state selection for the second consecutive year.
“Jamire had back-to-back great years and that speaks to his consistency,” Olds said.
On the third team, Kings had kicker Evan Berg and senior linebacker Sean Horan.
“Evan had a monster year kicking field goals for us,” said Olds. “He made 15 in the regular season, which for a high school kicker is pretty impressive.”
