All Chiawana, all the time.

Well, not entirely, but the Mid-Columbia Conference all-league football team has a decidedly Riverhawks flair.

Senior receiver and defensive back Deion Singleton was voted by the league’s coaches as MVP, while Chandler Newell was named the top offensive lineman, linebacker Alex Weber the top defensive player and Steve Graff the top coach.

All told, the league champions took up 16 of the 31 first-team slots and added six more second-team picks. The next highest number of first-team picks was five, by both Kamiakin and Walla Walla.

Kamiakin snagged one of the superlatives away from the Riverhawks, with quarterback Kylle Robertson earning offensive player of the year. However, he shared the first-team QB spot with Chiawana’s Joey Zamora.

Singleton, Grady Graff (linebacker, tight end), Clifton Lozano (running back, all purpose) and Dre Dorton (receiver, returner) were two-way first-team picks for Chiawana along with Walla Walla’s Darnell Handcox (defensive back, receiver).
