With the high school football season officially cover, let's recognize the Union County football players named to their 2018 all-conference teams. Conferences selected their teams over the last few weeks, but I wanted to wait until the dust cleared on the playoffs so that these great athletes received their just due for their exceptional effort on the football field this past season.

The All-Conference teams are voted on by the coaches in each conference. Five county players were recognized as offensive/ special teams player of the year on their conference teams. Sam Howell (Sun Valley), Jaylen Coleman (Porter Ridge) and Kendrick McLaurin (Forest Hills) were named Offensive Players of the year in their conference. 

Jared Wheatley (Porter Ridge) & Ian Williams (Weddington) received the honor as Special Teams Players of the year in their conference. 

Below, the complete list of each All-Conference team selection.
