Class 2A All State Football Returnees
Joshua McDonald ran for 746 yards and collected 95 tackles for Kent Denver a year ago and is one of three first team all-state selections for the Sun Devils

After finishing runner-up in Class 2A a year ago, Kent Denver may be considered the team to beat as the Sun Devils return four players who received first team all-state honors in 2016.  Heading up that list are running backs Joshua McDonald and Charles McKissick and defensive heavyweights Willy Boatman and TJ Love.

Defending state champion La Junta lost a senior class involving many three-year starters but the Tigers welcome back do everything QB Jon Nuschy who led the team in rushing and passing as a sophomore last year.  Trevon Wehrman (Platte Valley) and Cole Sienknecht (Manitou Springs) are two other talented signal callers in Class 2A this year as both were second team all-state last season.
