Hoagland combined for more than 1,500-yards in total offense with 25 touchdowns for the Railroaders, who went 5-3 on the season en route to an appearance in the sectional semifinals.

On the defensive side of the ball, seniors Matt Oliver and AJ Ricketts were named to the all star defensive line. Oliver, who recorded double-digit tackles-for-loss while forcing three fumbles and recovering one, while Ricketts had seven tackles-for-loss and forced two fumbles while recovering one in the Section II semifinals.

Senior Jake Evans was named to the first team as a linebacker, as he recorded a forced fumble, fumble recovery and interception on the season. His fumble recovery against Fort Edward led to a 60-yard touchdown return that gave the Railroaders the momentum back in a 33-20 win.

Also receiving mention as honorable mention all stars were junior fullback/linebacker Evan McLaughlin, senior receiver/defensive back Brice Cook and junior quarterback/defensive back Codie Bascue.
