SYRACUSE – Five Chenango County football players received all-state recognition in a release from the New York State Sportswriters Association today.
Sherburne-Earlville senior Cody Marango returns to the squad as a second team all-state linebacker in Class C; Norwich senior Michael Oralls is a third team Class B choice at running back, while junior Jamison Luke and senior Tristan Rifanburg of Norwich along with Oxford junior Nick Neer are honorable mention selections.
A third team honoree a season ago at defensive back, Marango moved to inside linebacker this season, and again served as a defensive leader for the Marauders. Marango started on defense for three straight S-E playoff teams, and is also a three-time Evening Sun grid all-star.
"Cody has been a terrific kid on and off the field," said Marango's coach the last three seasons, Mike Jasper. "He's a very physical player, and he filled that physical role on defense. This is well deserved, and he'll certainly be doing something for someone on Saturdays next season."
