Ethan Fry had a high school football season to remember.

Owen Rush did, too.

Together, the Fredonia teammates were among the headliners on the Section VI Class C South All-Star team.

Fry, a senior quarterback, was named the Offensive Player of the Year, while Rush, a junior, was selected the Lineman of the Year.

Fry completed 195 of 311 passes for 2,740 yards and 27 touchdowns behind a line anchored by Rush.
