The high school football season recently drew to a close with state championships in Classes A, B and C being decided.

And while Cheverus of Portland, Wells and Yarmouth brought home state crowns in their respective classes, there have been other gridiron honors handed out, such as in Little Ten Conference Class C.

Perhaps the most significant surprise of the fall season in Class C was the emergence of the Mount View football team, which finished 6-2 and nabbed the fourth seed in the playoffs before falling to No. 5 Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft in the quarterfinals.

Now, the Mustangs are considered as some of the top players in LTC Class C as 11 Mount View players secured 14 spots among the coveted all-conference selections.

“It’s very good,” Mount View coach Jack Brady. “We’re very proud of our team this year. They did so many things that were firsts for Mount View football I can’t even bring them all to mind when I try to list them.”

The Mustangs had three wins in the program’s history prior to this season, but everything came together this year for the Thorndike-based squad and that put Mount View on the map as legitimate contenders in Eastern Class C.

Jay Babin earned a first-team all-conference selection at defensive end and also got the nod at quarterback as an honorable mention, while teammate Taylor Reynolds picked up two nominations as first-team punter and honorable mention at tight end. Craig Nealley also earned first-team for linebacker and second-team utility.

Ben Kormann also got the nod at first-team for defensive tackle, while Ryan St. Clair earned second-team at fullback and Mike Robinson second-team at guard.

Rounding out the honorable mention category for Mount View were Ricky Moulton (center), Will Nunn (running back), Jake Blanchette (linebacker), Mark Dolloff (linebacker), Andrew Gibbs (offensive guard) and Tyler McCormick (defensive back).

“They had a great year,” said Brady. “I’m sure by now they [feel] differently … I know they were disappointed at the end of the last game, but I know that they’re looking at it proudly now and will be even more proud as time goes on.”
