AFTON — Add “football all-stater” to the list of accomplishments for Afton’s Wil Amos.
Amos was named to the Oklahoma Coaches Association East team as a defensive back.
A key player in Afton’s march to a Class A state championship, was saluted as the most valuable player in District A-7 and was named to the OCA all-state by class team.
“He is very deserving of the accolade,” said Afton head coach Zach Gardner. “Wil is a hard-working young man with great character. His career and post-season stats were outstanding.”
Amos had 26 tackles, four interceptions — including a key one in the state championship game that snuffed out a Crescent scoring threat — and a fumble recovery.
He was named the most valuable player in District A-7 after logging 3,678 combined yards.
He rushed for 3,247 yards and 45 touchdowns on 304 carries, returned three kickoffs for 12 yards and one touchdown and had 14 punt returns for 419 yards and two TDs.
Amos completed 71 of 113 passes (62.8 percent) for 1,187 yards and 16 TDs. He had just two interceptions.
“He would be the first to recognize his teammates in all our success,” Gardner said.
Amos, who has committed to play football at Emporia State (Kansas) University, is the fifth Eagle to receive all-state recognition under Gardner.
The others include Dusty Henry in 2011, Dillon Johnson in 2012; Dalton Shinn in 2013 and Wyat Bowers, 2015.
