D10 names its football all-stars

GUELPH – A total of 17 players who played in this year’s District 10 high school football league’s championship game were named to the league’s all-star team.

The championship-winning St. James Lions had eight players named to the all-star squad while the Centennial Spartans had nine.

Spartans named to the team were offensive lineman Malachi Rietberg, receiver Hadi El-Miari, quarterback Daniel Brown, defensive linemen Andrew Riley and Seamus Milligan, linebacker Luis Alfieri, defensive back Thomas Ness, punter/kicker Ben Lane and team all-star Drake Davis.

Bishop Macdonell Celtics placed six on the team — offensive lineman Ryan Matteis, receiver Nick Guardiero, defensive lineman Sebastian Szymanski, linebacker Harry Shoniker, defensive back Brendan Perozzo and team all-star Caelen Fraser.

Five Guelph CVI Green Gaels were named to the team. They were offensive lineman Calvin Downey, running back Ben Boddy, linebacker Enzo Njo, defensive back Nathan Dixon and team all-star Trevor Keough.

The Lourdes Crusaders and Ross Royals each had two on the team. Picked from Lourdes were receiver Zachary DeCorso and team all-star Jack St. Hilaire. Selected from Ross were special teams player Leo Finoro and team all-star Adam Shoemaker.
