The Washington Demon football team had four players make it on the All-State football team.

Alex Coker who was fifth in the state in yards and tied for first in touchdowns as a rusher was chosen for the first team offense, and a guy that Coker thanked a lot for this success Tommy Peterson was chosen for the first team offense as well.

The Demons also had two second team defense members with Garrett Covington who was first in the state in assisted tackles for a loss, and Tanner Knupp who was second in the state in assisted tackles for a loss.

Demon head football coach Randy Schrader said all four were very deserving of the award, and it was nice to see Peterson get the recognition as well.

“The skill guys you always have the stats to go by, but when you grind in the trenches like Tommy did, and to be recognized for those accomplishment, I mean he really made himself and work extremely hard and got better as the year went on, as did all of our inside guys, but Tommy in particular I think came on, specifically on the defensive side of the ball, because last year he was a one way guy on offense, this year we played him both ways and he got himself in great physical condition, took a little weight off and just became a ‘manchild’ on both sides of the football,” Schrader said.

Washington finished their season as state runners-up.
