North Putnam quarterback Brayden Dahlstrom was named to the first team for 2A while Greencastle wide receiver Michael Richardson earned first-team honors in 3A.
Senior Jake Mullis was also selected to represent NPHS as an honorable mention at wide receiver.
Dahlstrom and Mullis helped the Cougars finish with a school-record 13 wins. North Putnam was undefeated this season before falling to Southridge at home in the semistate round Nov. 18.
Greencastle quarterback Cal Gard earned an honorable mention on the Class 3A team.
