The Northview football team put together another outstanding record last season, finishing at 8-2 overall and was ranked 13th in the final Class 4A Coaches Poll and reached No. 11 in the Associated Press Poll.
A relatively young team that featured just nine seniors, the Knights placed three of those athletes in this weekend's All-Wabash Valley All-Star game being held at Indiana State's Memorial Stadium at 7 p.m.
Jonathan Bradshaw was selected as the First Team tight end for the North All-Stars, which will be coached by Marshall's Todd Evers.
Bradshaw made 36 receptions for 372 yards and five touchdowns. He also grabbed eight two-point conversions this season for the Knights.
Scotty Wheeler, a 6'4, 285 lb. lineman received a Division I scholarship to play football for Kent State next year. Wheeler was a three-year starting offensive tackle for Northview and also earned All-Western Indiana Conference honors last year. Wheeler expects to compete for playing time as a freshman this fall. He joins another former Northview football player on a Division I roster as Joey Evinger enters his senior season at Louisville. Evinger also capped his senior prep season by playing in the Wabash Valley All-Star game.
Anthony Hubbard has also been selected to play in the all-star game on Saturday after a standout senior year for the Knights. Hubbard is a 5'10, 220 lb. athlete that saw playing time at several different line positions, including defensive end.
The North All-Stars have won four of the five games so far, including a 32-16 win in the 2009 contest.
