Recognizing the efforts of the boys and making the All-Conference team were Colby Clatterbaugh, Cooper Main, Ryan Phelan, Jeremy Woodward, Zach Eskelson and Kelton Turner. All-Conference honorable mention awards went to Spud White, Dax Sheridan and Zach Simonsen.
Statewide honors as determined by CHSAA Now for the All-state team are Phelan, Main, Turner, Clatterbaugh and Woodward. Mile High Preps also assembles a list of players making an all-state team, those Cowboys are Phelan, Turner, White, Woodward and Clatterbaugh.
The All-state game for 2021 is unlikely to take place due to the pandemic. Each year one person is selected from each league to play in the game and this year Phelan has been recognized for his achievements during his senior year. For the 2020 season he threw for 1,024 yards and seven touchdowns, rushed 141 yards for a total yardage of 1,165 yards, scored 26 points, and defensively ended the year with 17 tackles.
