The 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior defensive end/outside linebacker helped lead the Cavs to a second straight league championship

PAMPLIN MEDIA: JIM BESEDA - Clackamas senior Justin Pagan was named the Mt. Hood Conference's Defensive Player of the Year after the Cavaliers went undefeated in league play for the second season in a row.Clackamas senior Justice Pagan was named the Mt. Hood Conference's Defensive Player of the Year and landed on the all-league first team for the second season in a row after leading the Cavaliers to a third consecutive league championship.

In four league games, Pagan, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound defensive end registered 27 tackles, including 20 solo tackles and a team-high 15 tackles for loss as the defending Class 6A state champion Cavaliers went undefeated in league play for the second straight season.

"It's an honor to be recognized by all the coaches that thought I was good enough to be worthy of such an award," Pagan said. "I just want to thank all my teammates and coaches for pushing me to be the player that I'm capable of being.

"I put in a lot of work this past offseason and it's definitely paying off this year."

Barlow senior running back Jobadiah Malary was recognized as the league's Offensive Player of the Year, and Reynolds' Ryan Aldred was named Coach of the Year in his second season with the Raiders.

Joining Pagan and Malary on the all-league first team from Clackamas were junior quarterback Austin Atkeson, senior linebacker Jake Bushman, senior offensive lineman Brian Espinoza, junior offensive lineman Nick Espinoza, senior defensive lineman Kelsen Hennessy, and junior wide receiver Richard Kennewell.

Jeffrey Nelson of the Cavaliers was named to the all-league first team as a placekicker for the second year in a row, and also landed on the first team as a punter for the first time.

Clackamas' Grant Schoen made the all-league second team as a defensive back, and six other Cavaliers -- Alex Hall, Jailen Hammer, Noah Hobbs, Chris Thor, Thomas Tolonen, and Tyler Vaughn -- earned honorable mention.

"I felt there were some guys who I thought were more deserving of high accolades, some guys who maybe were left off who deserved to be on there, some guys who were honorable mention that I think could have been first- or second-team guys," Cavaliers coach Joe Bushman said. "But that's how it goes sometimes, you know? I mean, what can you do? You can't control how the other coaches vote."

Atkeson, who split time at quarterback with Caleb 'C.J.' Jordan, completed 24 of 37 passes for 434 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in four league games. He had rushed for 62 yards on 18 carries with two touchdowns.

Kennewell, the 6-3, 180-pound wide receiver, caught passes in three of four league games, finishing with seven receptions for 194 yards and five touchdowns.
