Whitefish Bay junior quarterback Cade Garcia was acknowledged as the North Shore Conference Offensive Back of the Year, and top receiver, junior Alex Anthony, shared Offensive End of the Year when the NSC announced its All-Conference football teams.
The duo was among several Bay players named to the lists. Junior defensive lineman Jordan Riley and senior defensive back Michael Kirkendoll also earned spots on the first team, with Kirkendoll also getting the nod at split end.
Second-team choices included junior punter and kicker Zach Lichosik; sophomore outside linebacker Tommy Brunner; junior inside linebacker and offensive lineman Carson Kimple; junior defensive end Brady Weas; junior running back Bo Bassindale; and senior tight end Chris Caspari.
Blue Dukes on the honorable-mention list included junior Case Fleck (defensive back) and junior George Beatty (offensive line). The number of returnees will make Bay one of the top teams in the Milwaukee area in 2017.
