Newport High School senior Kaden Bruns highlighted a strong group of Newport football players to earn 4A-SD 3 All-League selections, Cubs head coach Dan Schaffeld reported to the News-Times last weekend.
Bruns made the all-league offense first team as a wide receiver and was selected as a first-team utility player for his place-kicking. Senior running back Carson Braxling was a Newport first-team defense selection at linebacker. Bruns was a second-team defense all-conference honoree at linebacker.
Braxling, who also plays running back, was one of three Cubs selected to the all-league second-team offense along with junior linemen Jonathan Wiese and Kaiden Sloane. In addition to Bruns, Newport players to earn all-league second-team defense honors included senior lineman Ocean McCue, junior lineman Landon Cunningham and freshman defensive back Ethan Bruns.
Junior quarterback Markus Everitt, freshman quarterback Tyler Mattson, senior wide receiver Camden Galen, junior linebacker Eduardo Romero-Yanez, junior cornerback Nick Walker and freshman offensive lineman Leo Roller represented the Cubs as honorable mention selections.
