Fasel was a first team all-league selection at running back, linebacker and kick returner.It's over. With Liberty's second round loss to Jesuit, the football season officially ended for the Hillsboro area 6A schools. But while gone, not forgotten will be the standout individuals honored by the Pacific Conference on their list of postseason all-league selections.

In all, 46 positions on the team were represented by Hillsboro schools Liberty, Glencoe and Century, including 13 first-teamers, 11 second-teamers, and 22 honorable mention.

Glencoe led the way — barely — with 16 honorees, while Century and Liberty claimed 15 spots apiece.

The Crimson Tide, who finished the season with an overall record of 5-5 and qualified for the playoffs for the first time since the 2013-14 slate, had five first team selections beginning with sophomore Royce Fasel who garnered three of them, at running back, linebacker and kick returner. Fasel averaged just more than 100 yards rushing per game, totaling 1023 yards on the ground. In addition, he caught 23 passes for another 199 yards and scored 11 touchdowns. In addition to Fasel, Glencoe defensive lineman Colton Stadelman and punter Kyler Schlegel earned first team honors.

Second team honors went to defensive lineman Beau Podwys, Schlegel again at linebacker, Tyler Cox at defensive back, Benton Reynolds at offensive tackle, Zack Schlottmann at kicker, and quarterback Carson Wilson. The senior signal-caller finished his first year at the quarterback position completing 61 percent of his throws for 1043 yards, with five touchdowns and six interceptions.

Sparks was a first team receiver and second team cornerback selection.Tide honorable mention selections were Wilson at linebacker, Kainoa Stout and Ryan Giard at defensive back, Schlottmann at tight end, and Tyler Cox at receiver.

Liberty, which finished 7-4 overall and won a first round state playoff game over Grant before falling to Jesuit, had four first-teamers, three second-teamers, and eight honorable mention.

Falcon first-teamers included seniors, linebacker Kyle Perkins, running back Jaison Ochoa, and Marquis Brown who earned such honors at both corner and receiver. Second-teamers included junior linebacker Ronaldo Alfaro, senior offensive guard Cyrus Markowitz, and senior safety Cole Smith. And honorable mention honors went to Markowitz, Gabe Jones and senior Dakota Jensen on the defensive line, junior Xanden Unciano at corner, junior offensive guard Jason Dardon, junior center Padraic Perez, senior Jaxson Lake at receiver, senior linebacker Steven Galvan, sophomore quarterback Hiro Diamond, and Smith again at running back.

Century managed just two wins this season, but under first year head coach Danny Kernan did make the OSAA state playoffs before losing to top-ranked Tigard in the first round. In doing so, the Jaguars claimed four first team positions, two second team, and nine honorable mention.

The first team honorees were led by senior Chance Sparks who was a unanimous selection at receiver, where the standout caught an astounding 85 balls for 1195 yards and 13 touchdowns. In addition to his work through the air, Sparks also rushed 27 times for 134 yards. Joining Sparks on the first team was junior defensive lineman Brodie Reese who had 88 tackles and 29 tackles-for-loss, including 7.5 sacks; center Tuntun Freeman; and junior quarterback Zach Boehler who completed 100 of his 195 pass attempts, while throwing for 1305 yards, 13 touchdowns and six intereceptions.

Second team Century honorees were senior linebacker Ernesto Alvarez who led the team with 136 tackles, and Sparks again at cornerback after tallying 52 tackles and two interceptions.
