Flyer names 2012 All-County football team

While Brownsburg recorded its first undefeated regular season in nearly 20 years and claimed the outright Hoosier Crossroads Conference title, several county teams also enjoyed substantial success this year.

Avon advanced the furthest of any team into the postseason, making its fifth consecutive sectional final contest.

Both Tri-West and Danville shared a portion of the Sagamore Conference title with Western Boone.

Each of these teams is well represented on the 2012 all-county football team and for good reason — their players led them to great accomplishments.

Brownsburg leads the way with four selections, starting with Indiana University commit Chase Dutra. It is Dutra’s third year on the all-county team and the do everything athlete did not disappoint in his 2012 campaign. Dutra totaled 1,099 yards through the season and 10 touchdowns.

Brownsburg’s defense was a large reason why the Bulldogs remained unbeaten for so long and leading members of that side deserve recognition. Connor Ludwig and Garrett Isch stood out for their performances. Isch helped lead an impressive secondary with 16 passes defended, 35 tackles, and two interceptions. Ludwig won the Bulldog award for his efforts with 86 tackles, five tackles for loss (TFL), a forced fumble, interception, and a touchdown.

Joining the other three Bulldogs is freshman Toks Akinribade, who made a significant impact on Brownsburg’s offensive landscape, forcing opposing defenses to scheme against him. Akinribade rushed for 891 yards, recorded 13 TDs and 4.98 yards per carry (ypc) average.

Avon, Danville and Tri-West each have three representatives.

Elijah Daniel has more than 30 Division I offers for a reason. He is an unusual, one-of-a-kind talent. At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds Daniel forced offensive coordinators to gameplan for his presence and even that did not work. Daniel recorded 86 tackles, had 16 TFL, and five sacks.

Avon’s Jalen Edwards provided plenty of offensive firepower and led the county’s receivers in touchdowns with nine. Edwards totaled 692 yards on 38 receptions for an impressive 18.2 yards per catch (ypc).
