Ottawa-Glandorf’s Aaron Rieman was a two-way first-team pick and the Western Buckeye League Offensive Lineman of the Year as the league released its all-conference honors for the 2019 season.
Rieman, a 6-foot-3, 226-pound senior, got a first-team nod at offensive tackle and as a defensive interior lineman.
Offensively, he helped the Titans average 309.9 yards and 25.8 points per game — both in the top half of the league rankings.
O-G also remained balanced as one of two WBL teams to average at least 140 rushing (147.5) and passing yards (162.3).
Rieman was joined on the all-WBL first team by fellow lineman and offensive guard Logan Schmitz, a 6-0, 200-pound senior. Schmitz doubled up as a second-team defensive interior lineman.
Brennan Blevins (offensive flex) and Clay Recker (running back) were also first-team offensive selections for O-G.
Blevins, a junior, caught 28 passes for 589 yards and six touchdowns. Recker ran for 652 yards and six scores on 109 carries.
Second-team selections for O-G included: Jacob Balbaugh (quarterback), Will Kaufman (tight end), Jarrod Beach (wide receiver), Tyler Leopold (center), Eric Heebsh (defensive back) and Logan Miller (linebacker).
Kenton’s Jayden Cornell and Luke Fackler were named offensive and defensive backs of the year, respectively.
Wapakoneta’s Issac Meeks was named defensive lineman of the year.
St. Marys Memorial’s Ty Howell was selected as specialist of the year.
Kenton’s Brent Fackler and Wapakoneta’s Travis Moyer were co-coaches of the year as their teams split the WBL title at 8-1 in league play.
