Brett Monroe earned second team all district honors at receiver after hauling in 33 receptions for 723 yards and seven touchdowns.

Members of the Northeast Missouri media announced the group’s 2017 All-District Football selections, with Scotland County earning seven spots among the post-season awards as voted on by sportswriters and sportscasters from media outlets across northeast Missouri.

With the Class 1 state champion, Monroe City, as well as  the #1 ranked team in the state for much of the year in Marceline, the district was packed with quality players.

That didn’t stop a pair of SCR-I standouts from earning first team honors.

Senior Stephen Terrill was named to the first team on the defensive line while junior Jaydan Payne was named to the first team at linebacker. Terrill recorded 72 tackles and three quarterback sacks while Payne led Scotland County with 106 tackles and also recorded an interception.

Terrill also got the nod on the offensive line where he was named to the second team along with Scotland County’s Bryson Orton.

Jaydan Payne (31) and Stephen Terrill (66), seen here in pursuit of the Schuyler County quarterback earlier this year, were both named 1st Team All-District on defense.

Gage Dodge earned second team at defensive back and at kicker. He had 58 tackles and led the squad with five interceptions. Dodge made 31 of 34 extra point kicks and also four of seven on field goal attempts.

Senior Brett Monroe earned second team honors at receiver. He led Scotland County with 33 catches for 723 yards and seven TDs.
