The Flagstaff Eagles placed four players on the 4A Grand Canyon All-Region First Team.
Luis Jaramillo, Jace Wetzel, Luke Canizales and Stephen Canizales earned first-team honors in the awards released by the AIA last week. Flagstaff also placed four athletes on the All-Region Second Team, as Dayton Koyiyumptewa, Josh Vrieswyk, Aidan Sedillo and Oscar Castruita made it on the list.
Ten Flagstaff players were named to the honorable mention list.
Jaramillo was named to the first team after he earned second-team honors last season for his breakout sophomore campaign. This season he rushed for 1,032 yards and 12 touchdowns after getting out to a slow start to the year.
The Eagles finished the season just short of the 4A playoffs, going 6-4 overall and 3-3 in the Grand Canyon under first-year head coach Todd Hanley.
