All-State Football Teams

The Metro League was well-represented on the Class 6A all-state teams, as was Valley Catholic on the 4A all-state squads.

Jesuit, who won the league title outright, led the way with eight all-state selections including five first-team all-state picks: junior running back Trey Lowe, junior center Travis Spreen, senior offensive lineman Jaxson Kirkland, senior offensive lineman Jarred Daul and senior defensive back Demetrius Douglas. Sunset senior linebacker Nick Wiley was also first-team all-state.

Douglas, Jarred Daul, Jesuit senior lineman Joel Daul, Jesuit junior tight end Isaiah Henderson-Brazie, Beaverton senior quarterback Carson Crawford, Beaverton senior wide receiver Mataio Talalemotu, Beaverton senior kicker Tristan Lewis, Westview senior wide receiver Mason Elliott, Westview senior safety Jason Rucker and Westview senior punter Sean Parker were second-team all-state nods.

Henderson-Brazie (linebacker), Jesuit senior offensive lineman Trevor Pixley, Beaverton senior defensive lineman Jackson Platt and Beaverton senior defensive back Lucas Radostitz were honorable mention all-state.

The Valiants enjoyed arguably one of the best seasons in school history under new head coach Nick Hegwood, beating Scappoose during Cowapa League play and clinching a 4A playoff berth. Valley Catholic senior center Ian Birrell and senior wide receiver/linebacker Daniel Hardy were second-team all-state. Birrell was honorable mention all-state as a defensive lineman and senior defensive back Aiden Welsh was named honorable mention all-state.

What’s ahead

Beaverton at Sheldon boys basketball: This non-league game, maybe more than any upcoming Les Schwab Invitational contest, is personal to the Beavers. Sheldon was the nemesis that bounced Metro League champion Beaverton from the Class 6A playoffs last season, making 13 three-pointers en route to an upset victory over the higher ranked Beavers in the second round of the postseason. The loss curtailed Beaverton’s hopes of making the 6A state tournament. In Will Swank and Jacob Williams, Sheldon possesses two players who were thorns in Beaverton’s side in that playoff game. Cole Johanson, Beau Sheeran and Hunter Sweet will surely be out for vengeance. Tip time is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Sheldon High School on Friday.

De La Salle North Catholic at Valley Catholic boys basketball: Dating back to their Class 3A days as state title contenders, De La Salle North and Valley have waged their fair share of wars both in non-league competition and in the state tournament. De La Salle is still a 3A power while Valley moved to the 4A level two years ago, where they’ve been a consistent playoff entrant looking to make the jump to the 4A state tournament. The two teams face off at 7:30 p.m. at Valley Catholic High School on Thursday.
