The Deseret News has announced the all-state teams for the 2018 football season. After winning region and making it to the state championship this fall, 13 Red Devil football players made the cut for the 2A all-state squads.

Grand landed five gridders on the all-state first team, three on the second team and five on the honorable mentions list.

Red Devils who made the first team were senior running back Corbin Arbon, senior offensive linemen Brody Williams and Jarett Reidhead and junior linebacker Brayden Troutt. Junior quarterback Bryant Troutt made it on to the first team in the athlete position for racking up 1,900 yards of total offense and 23 touchdowns.

Representing Grand on the second team were senior running back Trent Elmore, senior tight end Stacy Randall and senior linebacker Chris Thompson.

Offensive players for Grand who made the honorable mentions list were junior tight end Trea Meyer and senior offensive lineman Jarom Shumway. On the defensive side of the ball, senior linebacker Austin Johnson and senior defensive back Bailey Shelton were recognized. Sophomore Dante Wells also made the list for his contributions as kicker.

The Deseret News selects an MVP for each classification, but the all-state teams are decided exclusively by votes from the coaches.

With 13 players making the list, the awards capped a very successful season for the Red Devils. Next season, Grand’s football team will have its work cut out for it as it competes against larger schools after changing moving from 2A to 3A.
