STC football team gather for annual banquet
November 7, 2018


The STC Trojan football team gathered for their final moments as a team at the annual end of season banquet on Sunday, October 28.

Head Varsity Coach Nate Doran acknowledged it was a tough season that didn't go the way they wanted it to. The Trojans finished the year 0-9 a first in 10 years but Doran was still proud of his team. He felt that success can be measured in so many different ways. He said what they learned on the football field this season was about much more than the game of football. For him it's about building a brotherhood, community and family. He is trying to raise up leaders that will be good husbands and fathers one day.

Following the dinner and speeches from the coaching staff awards were presented to several team members. Captains for the season included Keith Keahna, Brendan Patro, Dallas Horn and Drake Crawford.

Earning All District recognition were Keith Keahna, Aaron Neave, Cael Kellogg, Payton Vest and Fabian Padilla earned honorable mention.

A highlight for any coach is when he or she has athletes on their team who are successful not only in competition but in the classroom. Earning Academic All District is truly an accomplishment. One has to have a 3.25 or higher. This season 42% of the team received this award including Aaron Adams, Gabe Babinat, Jackson Beltz, Wes Upah, Keith Keahna, Cael Kellogg, Jackson Beltz and Nate Drummer.

Earning their letter were Nate Drummer, Tyrin Lasley, Ed Hemby, Vincent Brannan, Dallas Horne, Payton Vest, Kalem Schrock, Matt Wiese, Aaron Neave, Fabian Padilla, Brendan Patro, Devon Slagle, Brady Knode, Jackson Beltz, Aiden Waseskuk, Cael Kellogg, Ben Drummer, Keith Keahna, Aaron Adams, Drake Crawford, Jesus Wanatee-Romero, Gabe Babinat and Mickey Wanatee.
