11 Celts earn All-Conference football selections

The all-conference teams for the South-Central Football Conference, also known as Special District 1, are in, and 11 Celtics take up 13 spots on the list. 

Senior Josh Allen and junior Jordan Araiza each made honorable mention on both sides of the ball, Allen at tight end and linebacker, Araiza at receiver and defensive back. 

The Celtics had two members earn second-team honors, center Andres Hermosillo Vega and punter Roman Burrus, both seniors. 

Also earning honorable mentions on offense are junior guard Roman Cherepanov, senior running back Izeyah Contreras, junior running back Jeremiah Tracy and senior quarterback Gage Smedema. 

On defense, junior defensive lineman Daniel Cooper, senior linebacker Cammron Faerando and senior defensive back Xavyer Rodriguez all earned honorable mentions. 

While there might not have been a lot to celebrate for the Celts during the 0-9 season, four returning honorable mentions, including two key skill players in Tracy and Araiza, and a second season for current sophomore QB Arris Vasseur give McNary something to build on in 2024.
