The Missouri Media All-State teams for football honorees were released last week. Southern Boone senior Blake Dapkus was named to the Class 3, second team as wide receiver. Dapkus put up some outstanding statistics with 114 receptions for 2,149 yards and 29 touchdowns. He also added 21 kickoff returns for 455 yards and 11 punt returns for 239 yards for the season.
