SHAWNEE -- Although he was initially snubbed, Dylan Kedzior proved he belonged among the state's elite.
The Claremore graduate put his abilities on full display Saturday night, catching five passes for 70 yards and two touchdowns for the East in a 21-13 loss to the West in the Oklahoma Football Coaches Association All-State game at Oklahoma Baptist University's Crain Family Stadium in Shawnee.
Kedzior was an alternate selection for the exhibition.
His touchdown grabs of 22 and 34 yards both came from Stillwater's Gunnar Gundy, son of Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy.
Kedzior handled the kicking duties as well, booting four punts for an average of 40.8 yards while averaging 52 yards on his three kickoffs. He also went 1-for-2 on extra points.
His efforts earned him the East Offensive Player of the Game.
Inola's Ethan Trosky (receiver) and Bonner Pennington of Oologah (offensive line) also competed in the game, while Claremore's Jayla Hurt and Sydney Callender performed routines on the sideline as part of the All-State cheer team.
