The Nikiski, Homer and Seward football squads filled the small-schools Peninsula All-Conference teams list for 2015, which was released after the small-schools championship decider Oct. 17 between Nikiski and Eielson high schools.

Nikiski senior quarterback Cade Anderson was awarded Offensive Player of the Year, while senior teammate linebacker Jon McCormick — who made the Gridiron Elite club at the Lawyer Milloy and Jermaine Kearse football camp in Tacoma, Washington, this summer — took Defensive Player of the Year, and Nikiski senior Luke Johnson took Lineman of the Year.

Coach of the Year honors went to Voznesenka’s Justin Zank.
