named First Team by coaches
By Justin Sokeland
Bedford North Lawrence’s Andrew Scarpellini, Joe Jackson and Esteban Flores were named to the Hoosier Hills Conference’s First Team by the league coaches.
Scarpellini, an offensive lineman, and Jackson, a defensive back, were senior captains for the Stars, who finished 4-6 overall and sixth in the league standings with a 2-5 record. Flores, a junior, was named as a kicking specialist.
Jackson led the Stars with four interceptions while also recording two sacks and eight tackles for loss. Flores was a weapon as he kicked 13 field goals, and he also had 15 catches for 342 yards and four touchdowns as a receiver. Scarpellini, a 6-5, 290-pound power blocker, was a key piece to BNL’s triple-option running game.
Columbus East, while finished as the Class 5-A state runner-up, led the league with seven First Team selections. The Olympians won their 13th consecutive HHC title and stretched their league winning streak to 70 games.
BNL’s Jackson Bartlett (linebacker) was named Honorable Mention.
