Highland-Century football

Highland’s Kaleb Demuzio (21) collides with Century’s Emmett Holt (9) and Jonah Sowell (22) during their game Oct. 11 at Holt Arena.

Highland running back Kaleb Demuzio was named the 5A District 5-6 Offensive Player of the Year as selected by conference coaches, leading a gaggle of Rams on the all-conference teams, which were announced Tuesday.

Demuzio ran for 1,250 yards for the Rams, despite missing most of their state quarterfinal victory over Borah with an injury. He also set the school’s single-game rushing record with 299 yards against Century.

Seven Highland players made first-team all-conference — offensive linemen Blake Williamson and Hipa Galo, kicker Ian Hershey, defensive linemen Kamiah Olsen and Luke Togiai, and linebacker Dylan Jester, along with Jayden Bell at both defensive back and punter.

Quarterback Keegan Thompson of the state championship-winning Rigby Trojans was the conference’s overall player of the year.

Rigby defensive tackle Tanoa Togiai won defensive player of the year, and Trojans’ coach Armando Gonzalez was coach of the year.
