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.
