The Gladiators had seven football players named to the all-league first team after clinching their fourth league title in six seasons

PAMPLIN MEDIA: JIM BESEDA - Gladstone's Jackson Simmons (72) was named the Tri-Valley League's Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in three seasons after leading the Gladiators to an undefeated league record.Gladstone senior lineman Jackson Simmons was named the Tri-Valley League's Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in three seasons, and teammate Jack Foss was recognized as the Co-Lineman of the Year after the Gladiators clinched their fourth league title in six seasons.

"It's a great honor, but it's a team honor honestly," said Simmons, the 6-4, 270-pound tackle, who along with Foss was named to the all-league first team on both offense and defense. "I couldn't have done it without any of my teammates."

Other Gladstone players to earn first-team honors were sophomore placekicker Mateo Burgos, senior wide receiver/linebacker Ben Hill, junior defensive back Jaxon Jedrykowski, junior tight end J.P. Peterson, and junior running back/kick returner Mason Scheehean.

Senior running back Spencer Boyd and sophomore linebacker Sabastian Peiffer were named to the all-league second team for Gladstone, while punter Austin Conner, quarterback Jake Gehrke, linebacker Kahleb Newberry, and defensive lineman Stefan Smith earned honorable mention.

"Honestly, I think all my guys should have been first-team, all-league players, just like the other coaches think the same thing, too," Gladstone coach Wayne Harris said. "I was happy with what we ended up with, but I truly believe that some of our players that were second team and honorable mention should have made first team."
