Byline: The Register-Guard

Winning a state football title had its privileges for Monroe, which earned Class 2A all-state player and coach of the year honors.

Dragons running back Zach Young was named state offensive player of the year, and his coach, Bill Crowson, was named coach of the year.

Monroe defeated Santiam 36-22 for the state title in November, a game in which Young rushed for 133 yards.

Two of the players who made holes for Young, offensive linemen Keith Saito and Christian Garcia, also earned first-team offensive honors, and Young was also named to the first team as a kicker.

Saito was also a first-team selection on the defensive line and Young earned first-team honors at defensive back. Teammates Parker Wynn and Trent Warden were named to the first team as linebackers.

Oakland punter Andrew Harrington also made the first team.

St. Paul's Justin Herberger was defensive player of the year.

In Class 3A, no local players were named to the first team. Harrisburg placed three players on the second team offense: running back Gabe Knox, wide receiver Will Downs and offensive lineman Wyatt Prater.

Santiam Christian's Kyle Parameter was named Class 3A defensive player of the year, Cascade Christian's Haiden Schaan was offensive player of the year and Cascade Christian's Jon Gettman was coach of the year.
