Football: Panthers' Williams MVP

CLINTON -- Fulton’s Austin Regenwether and Jake Willging were unanimous picks, Regenwether, Erie/Prophetstown lineman Owen McConnell and Morrison’s Ryan Mayberry made the first team on both offense and defense, and Nick Williams of Erie/Prophetstown was selected as the Player of the Year when the Three Rivers Conference North Division coaches named their all-conference football teams.

Williams, the Panthers’ powerful running back, was a unanimous first-team pick on offense in addition to claiming MVP honors. Erie/Prophetstown swept the main awards, too, as Chuck Milem was named Coach of the Year.

Erie/Prophetstown, which finished second to Sterling Newman in the North Division standings, takes an 8-2 record into Saturday’s second round of the Illinois Class 3A playoffs. The Panthers play host to Stillman Valley in a 1:30 p.m. game in Erie, Ill.

Two of the players who helped open holes for Williams also received first-team honors. Owen McConnell was selected at a guard spot, while Kyle Coleman was named first-team center. Both players are seniors, like Williams.

McConnell also earned first-team honors on the defensive line.

Regenwether and Willging represented Fulton on the first team after the Steamers went 5-4 and took third in the conference standings with a 3-3 record.

Regenwether was a unanimous first-team pick at running back and also was selected as first-team linebacker on defense. Willging, like Regenwether a senior, was a unanimous first-team pick on the defensive line.

Mayberry, a senior, was a first-team pick at receiver and was one of two Morrison players named to the first team on defense. He was picked in the secondary, while junior Austin Shoup was a first-team pick on the line. The Mustangs wound up seventh in the standings with a 2-7, 1-5 record.

Fulton also had three players each on offense and defense named to the second team.

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
