More honors were bestowed to five member of the 2017 Indiana Class 4A state champion East Central Trojans. Seniors RB Logan Storie, TE Justin Brown, LB Tanner Yocum and DB Nathan Lloyd were named to the IFCA (Indiana Football Coaches Association) Senior All-State team. Making the IFCA Junior All-State team was QB Alex Maxwell. Also Named to the IFCA Class 4A Senior All-State team were RB Mitchell Orschell and OL Noah Hammond of Franklin County.

The 6-foot-5, 220 pound Brown had six of his team high 27 receptions go for scores. He had 412 yards and averaged 15.6 yards on those catches.

Yocum was the heart and soul of a Trojans defense that allowed 14 points or less in 11 of their last 12 victories. Classmate Lloyd made a lasting impression in the finale where he snared two of his five interceptions on the year. They are members of a senior class that went 15-2 in the post season.

Playing through a wrist injury, Maxwell was clutch in the playoffs. He topped the 1,000 yard mark rushing (1,075) for a second straight year. He also accounted for 25 touchdowns (20 rushing, five passing).
