The PAC 5 and Northern League announced postseason awards Wednesday, and it’s no surprise that Arroyo Grande, Mission Prep and Nipomo were well-represented.
Arroyo Grande seniors Bradley Mickey and Alex Cecchi, who both saw time as running backs and defensive backs, were named co-MVPs in the PAC 5. Mickey ended the season tied for the team lead with Cecchi in interceptions (6), led the Eagles in rushing yards and all-purpose yards, and was second on the team in touchdowns. Cecchi led Arroyo Grande with 19 touchdowns and averaged nearly 100 all-purpose yards per game.
Arroyo Grande quarterback Sawyer May and lineman Josh Day were named Offensive Back of the Year and Offensive Lineman of the Year, respectively. In total, six Eagles made the PAC 5 First Team Offense.
Atascadero’s Tannen Soojian was named Defensive Lineman of the Year and Arroyo Grande’s Sam Ness and Benny Willkomm were named co-Defensive Backs of the Year.
