Dillon

Findlay High’s Cam Dillon and Chase Wilcox earned first-team honors and three other Trojans were second-team picks in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference 2017 all-league football selections.
Dillon earned first-team honors at linebacker, but was a multi-faceted standout for the Trojans. The 6-foot-3, 218-pound senior had 45.4 total tackles, including team highs in tackles for loss (11.5) and sacks (5). Offensively, Dillon rushed for 142 yards and four TDs and caught 18 passes for 228 yards and two additional scores.
Wilcox, like Dillon, was a first-team all-TRAC pick for the second straight year. The senior kicker was a perfect 36 for 36 in PAT conversions and connected on 5 of 6 field goal attempts, the longest a 37-yarder.
Junior quarterback Tanner Rickle, senior running back Owen Morse and junior receiver Adam Gilbert were second-team all-TRAC selections.
Rickle completed 118 of 225 passes for 1,370 yards and 14 TDs and rushed for 575 yards and 11 other scores. Morse led the Trojans in rushing (689 yards, 4 TDs) and Gilbert was the Trojans’ top receiver (31 catches, 415 yards, 6 TDs.
TRAC champion Toledo Whitmer headed up the all-league selections, with sophomore quarterback Riley Keller named the offensive player of the year and Ken Winters, who guided the Panthers to a 7-0 record in league play and 10-0 overall mark, tabbed the coach of the year. Toledo Central Catholic lineman De’Marko Craig was named the TRAC Defensivve Player of the Year.
