Sunset Conference football champion Gold Beach and Coquille, the league's top Class 3A team, led the all-league lists in voting by the various coaches.

Gold Beach had the offensive most valuable player, quarterback Kipp Marstall, and one of the two defensive MVPs, linebacker Quinn Johnston. Johnston shared his honor with Coquille linebacker Derrick Yarnell, and the coaches of the two schools -- Gold Beach's Kevin Swift and Coquille's David Thomason -- shared coach of the year honors.

Panthers on the first-team offense included running backs Johnston and Travis Wood, receiver Anthony Kelly, center Kyle Sonnevil and linemen Jose Lopez and Brandon Adams.

Lopez was on the first-team defensive line, and joined by linebacker Dennis Dykstra and by Marstall as a defensive back.

Coquille, meanwhile, was represented on the first-team offense by Yarnell at running back, Larry Bowen at tight end and lineman Michael Romine. Romine and Bowen also were on the first-team defensive line, while Sye Yates was at linebacker and Tyler Sinclair at defensive back. Austin Arrant was the first-team punter.

Bandon, which also reached the playoffs, had Tyler Jacobo on the first team on both the offensive and defensive lines. Also on the first team for the Tigers were Spencer Murray at quarterback, Kyle Freitag at receiver, Mike Arriola at linebacker, Max Peters at defensive back and Jon Everest at kicker.

Reedsport's Charles Chavtur was a first-team linebacker.


Reedsport, which was the unbeaten league champion, had four of the six members of the all-league first team, including MVP Eden Huebner, a middle blocker.

She was joined on the first team by setter Taylor Lewis, outside hitter Monica Vaughn and libero Susi Martinez.

Myrtle Point's Caitlyn Robison was the defensive player of the year and Glide's Taylor Dutton was named the top setter.

Also on the first team were Myrtle Point setter Jazmine Grantham and outside hitter Sandra Sherman.

The second team included two more Braves -- Lindsey Wright and Ashton Mann -- along with Coquille's Kaitlyn Altenbach, Myrtle Point's Cherise Kirkpatrick, Gold Beach's Katie Moore and Glide's Jordyn Parazoo.

Reedsport's James Hixenbaugh was coach of the year. Coquille won the sportsmanship award.
