All-Ohio Football Players

This football season has been the best season Kenston Football has had in the last three years. The team worked hard and earned everything they accomplished. This season four players made All-State players of the year. Jack Porter made 1st Team All-State for Running Back, Alex Robarge made 2nd Team All-State for O-line, Bransen Stanley made 2nd Team for Wide Receiver, and Kee-shawn Merrill made Honorable Mention for Wide Receiver. Congratulations to Jack, Alex, Bransen, and Kee-Shawn and the rest of the Kenston Football team on their 8-2 record. Coach Grubich commented on all of these players saying great things. He said, “Bransen was a great all-around player and he was great going both ways of the ball. He deserved more credit for how well he played going both ways. I’m glad he got 2nd Team All-State and will be a great asset next year when he returns.”  On Alex Robarge he said, “He is a big physical kid and when he gets more consistent he will be an even better player next year.” Grubich said, “Kee was a dynamic football player and huge asset to both sides of the ball. He could score on both sides of the ball and he will be a major loss to the team next year.” About the final player, Jack Porter, Grubich said, “He was surprised but very proud, but this only means that the expectations will be higher next year to perform. Even though these are individual awards these show the great team effort.”
