Eight Trigg County football players were named to the Class 2A All-A Western Kentucky Conference team that was announced recently.

In addition, three Wildcats were named to the All-WKC First Team that consists of all four classes.

Defensive tackles Jeffrey Adams and Taylor McGee joined running back Steven Wadlington on the All-WKC First team.

Others named to the squad included Hopkinsville quarterback and defensive back Curtis Pulley, Heath running back Brock Wright and teammate Brandon Austin, Murray lineman Cory Zirbel and receiver Tim Masthey, Fort Campbell linebacker Micah Johnson, and Mayfield defensive back Tristan Dumas.

Hopkinsville’s Craig Clayton was voted coach of the year.

All of the senior players are eligible to play in the WKC All-Star game to be held next summer against a team of all-stars from southern Illinois.

Also eligible to play is Wildcat Kenny Turner and four other seniors not named to the first team.

Eight Wildcats were named to the All-WKC team from Class 2A. They were defensive back Jake Wallace, receiver Jamaal Boyd, cornerback Frank Russell, defensive linemen Kewanis Kennedy, Taylor McGee, and Jeffrey Adams, running back Steven Wadlington, and offensive lineman Kenny Turner.

Wallace tied for the team lead with five interceptions, had a quarterback sack, and recovered a fumble on defense.

Russell recovered a fumble and had an interception, both of which were returned for touchdowns. He also averaged 36.7 yards per kickoff return and ran back both a kickoff and punt for a touchdown during the season.

Kennedy set a new school record with 11 sacks, bettering Jason Wilson’s old mark of nine set back in 1989.

Kennedy also led the team with four fumble recoveries.

McGee, who had three sacks, and Adams, who also had three sacks and two fumble recoveries, helped anchor the Wildcat defensive line.

Boyd led Trigg County in receptions with 26 for 623 yards and nine touchdowns.

Wadlington moved into the top five in all-time rushing yardage at Trigg County after a 1,507 yard season and 12 touchdowns.

He also caught 12 passes for 153 yards and four scores.

Turner, who has committed to play football at the University of Kentucky, helped anchor an offensive line that produced 4,127 yards, including 2,651 on the ground. The Wildcat line also allowed just over one sack a game or one sack every ten attempts.

The WKC Banquet will be Sunday, December 12th at Murray State University at 1:00 p.m.
