Diekel, Hoagland honored

After a successful 5-4 season, the accolades are rolling in for the Whitehall Railroaders football team.

A pair of players, led by Offensive Player of the Year Josh Hoagland, was selected as Class D all-stars last week.

Zach Diekel was selected to first team defense for his play along the defensive line.

Hoagland, a junior, was selected as Offensive Player of the Year after a season in which he rushed for 1,363 yards and scored 13 total touchdowns. He surpassed the century mark in six of the team’s eight games (a ninth game was forfeited after Saratoga Catholic couldn’t field a team) including 244 yards and two touchdowns against Lake George and 307 yards and five total touchdowns against Warrensburg.

Diekel was the team’s most physical player consistently wreaking havoc along the defensive line. He led the team in tackles, tackles for a loss and sacks. He also forced a pair of fumbles and handled the teams kicking duties.

Several players received honorable mention status, including defensive back John Diekel, linebacker Evan McLaughlin, offensive linemen Wes Porter, running back Codie Bascue and linebacker Brandon Steves.

Cambridge, who lost in the state semifinals to Chester 38-22, led the way with eight all stars, including Player of the Year Skyler Saunders, Defensive Player of the Year Will Bromirski and Coach of the Year Doug Luke.

Selections are determined by a vote of Class D coaches.
