Five different Knappa players landed seven different spots on the Class 2A all-state football team, released last month.

The best part? The Loggers — who finished as the No. 4-ranked team in the state — will have four of the five players back next season.

Knappa will definitely be one of the front runners for the 2019 state title, with the return of all-state quarterback Eli Takalo and receiver Kanai Phillip.

Both were selected to the first-team offense as juniors, while junior Jaxson Goodman was a second-team offensive line selection.

Running back Luke Goozee capped his senior season by being chosen third-team all-state.

Defensively, Phillip was named as a second-team defensive back, junior Spencer Teague was selected as a third-team linebacker, and Goodman was a third-team defensive lineman.
