Voz football players named to all-conference

Two Voznesenka Cougars are among those selected for the Greatland Football All-Conference team:

Avraam Kalugin: quarterback, second team; defensive back, second team; punter, honorable mention; return specialist, honorable mention.

Dennis Martinshev: fullback, second team; inside backer, first team.

“(Kalugin) being selected at four different positions shows his athletic abilities and his natural talent for the game,” said Voznesenka Head Coach Justin Zank. “After only a couple years of organized football, he was able to have a major impact, not only on our team, but also the conference.”

Zank said Martinshev “epitomized the philosophy we are trying to install at the head of the bay. He played solid defense and ran the ball hard on offense. Dennis averages at least 10 tackles per game this year and was a turnover machine.”
