Prach, Roe earn spots on all-state football team

Boulder City senior linebacker Dillon Prach and junior defensive end Brooks Roe have been selected to the Division I­A football’s all­-state second ­team. Both also were chosen All-­Southern Region first ­team and All­-Sunrise League first­ team.

“Obviously, I would have liked to be on the all-­state first team because that’s what I was shooting for. But I am thankful for the recognition of being selected to the second team,” Roe said. “I was happy to make first team for the Southern Region and for the league.”

Prach also said he was happy.

“It is an honor to be chosen to the all­-state football team even if it is to the second team,” Prach said. “It’s still amazing to have all the coaches statewide know who you are and to vote for you. Making the all­-state team has always been a dream of mine, and so I am extremely happy.”

They helped to lead Boulder City to a 4-­5 regular season record and a berth in the playoffs for the second straight year. The Eagles were eliminated by Faith Lutheran in the first round of the Southern Region playoffs.
