Ismael Jantes, Lawson Talamantez

Seaside’s Ismael Jantes (77) listens to fellow all-state teammate Lawson Talamantez (23) before a preseason contest.

Two Seaside players and one Astoria senior earned spots on the 4A all-state football team for the 2021 season.

One of the few sophomores named all-state was Seaside’s Ismael Jantes, an honorable mention offensive lineman. Teammate Lawson Talamantez was an honorable mention linebacker, and Astoria senior Colton McMaster was the honorable mention punter.

Cowapa League champion Banks earned 11 spots on the all-state team, including three on the first team. The Braves played their last season as a member of the Cowapa, as Banks will be dropping to the 3A level for the 2022-23 school year.

The state’s 4A Offensive Player of the Year was Dom Montiel of Marshfield; Defensive Player of the Year was Marshfield’s Ezra Waterman; and John Lemmons of Marshfield was named Coach of the Year.
