Newton places six on All-LIC's Egyptian team

NEWTON — Newton's work in the trenches earned them a trio of Little Illini Conference All-Egyptian Division first-team selection.

Seniors Michael Smith and John Frohning were named to the first team for their work on the offensive and defensive lines, respectively, while linebacker Lucas Huston joined them on the first team.

Smith was part of an offensive line unit that got better as the season went on, giving protection to quarterback Brock Mammoser and holes to run through for Allen Taylor, Mitch Bierman and Huston.

Frohning played on the defensive line for the Eagles and helped the defense improve as the season progressed. He was ranked third of four among the first team defensive linemen.

Huston also received his due as a linebacker, making the first team. Huston led a core of strong linebackers for the Eagles.

On the second team, Newton's offense was represented through its skill position players.

Allen Taylor was named as a second-team running back, and earned it through being the Eagles' workhorse back for much of the season.

He was joined by wide receiver Austin Angel, who had a prolific season catching passes from Mammoser. Outside of the running game, the Eagles had a powerful downfield passing attack led by Angel and Kyle Muska.

Newton's last second-team selection was defensive back Jacob Lidy.

The Eastern Division, including Cumberland, also named their division team, but the results were not made available as of press time.

    The typical phrase used in situations like this, I think, is: “He shows potential.” I may not have believed anything I was saying, but at least he was in line to be a four-year starter; at least, he had that.
