The Advocate Messenger has released their annual All-Area football team (even though this year it should of been called the All-Boyle County team-Rebels have 14 players on the team). The Patriots have to players that made the team, and two more that made honorable mention.
Seniors Clayton Cooper and Matt DeBoard made the team. Cooper as a defensive lineman and DeBoard as a punter. Cooper had a great season on the defensive line, average 6 tackles per game.
DeBoard was a great utility man for the Pats, he played many positions during the season. But he may of been most important on special teams. He was the punter for the Pats (and the All-Area team). Averaging a little over 32 yards per punt he was able to keep the Pats out of bad field position a lot.
Seniors Julian Calhoun and Jerricho Ware made honorable mention. Congrats to all.
