Pendleton coach Erik Davis said his team did pretty well when it came to honors on the 5A Special District 1 East all-conference team. He was being modest.

Davis was named Coach of the Year, while senior running back Aiden Patterson was named the Offensive Player of the Year, and senior lineman Beau Skinner Defensive Player of the Year.

“Going through the first eight games, we dominated those teams,” Davis said. “The league coaches recognized they were special talents. I’m very proud of every one of them.”

All told, the Bucks placed 11 players on the first team, taking 13 spots on offense and defense.

Senior lineman Everett Willard earned first-team honors on both sides of the ball (center and defensive tackle), while senior Blake Davis was named as a receiver and return specialist.

Also earning first-team honors for the Bucks were linebackers Kirk Liscom and Willie Camp, cornerback Ian Bannister, safety Shawn Yeager, offensive tackles Cetch Kelly and Travis McGee, and quarterback Trent Sorey.

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Patterson rushed for 913 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. He also earned honors as a second-team linebacker, where he had 96 tackles.

Skinner, a 6-2, 190-pound defensive end, had 90 tackles for the Bucks, along with a state best (5A) 30 tackles for loss, which includes quarterback sacks.

“He is a speed rush guy off the end,” Davis said. “He is a good player.”

The Bucks also had three named to the second team, and four to the honorable mention team.

Pendleton (8-1) will host Crescent Valley at 7 p.m. Friday at the Pendleton Round-Up Grounds. The Bucks have not won a playoff game since 2006.
