HUDSON — Hudson senior linebacker Spencer Goldstien was named First-Team All-State in Class B the New York State Sportswriters Association announced on Tuesday.

Goldstien’s teammate, junior Josh Miller-Wallace, earned honorable mention status at running back.

Ichabod Crane was also represented on the All-State team as tight end Haydon Broockmann earned second-team status as a tight end.

Three Chatham players were recognized by the state in Class C. Sean King was named second-team defensive lineman, Triston Schermerhorn was named third-team running back and Kaleb Taylor earned honorable mention at quarterback.

Goldstien excelled in his first season at linebacker for the Bluehawks after playing on the defensive line as a junior. He finished the year with 82 tackles — 51 solo and 31 assists — while also recording 10 sacks.

"It's quite an honor and it's very well-deserved," Hudson coach John Davi said. "Spencer has worked tirelessly in the off-season and during the season to bring himself to the level that he has currently achieved. He's been a leader and a mentor to our younger guys and a pleasure to coach."

Miller-Wallace stood out in his first year on the varsity, rushing for 1,103 yards and 12 touchdowns despite missing the first two games of the season. He averaged a shade below 11 yards per carry and was twice nominated for MaxPreps/USA Football Players of the Week honors.

Broockmann has emerged as one of the best pass-catching tight ends in Section II. The junior standout had 29 receptions for 595 yards and eight touchdowns.

Glens Falls quarterback Joe Girard III and Batavia running back Ray Leach were the state Class B Co-Players of the Year.

King, just a junior, was the anchor of an aggressive Chatham defensive line and was a major reason why the Panthers were able to win the South Division in Section II Class C this year.

Schermerhorn emerged as one of the Panthers’ top offensive weapons this year, leading Section II in total points scored with 152, and rushing for 1,090 yards.

Taylor, completed his third year on the varsity level and was the heart and soul of the team, excelling on both sides of the ball at quarterback and defensive back. He passed for 679 yards and nine touchdowns, while also picking off four passes on defense.

Jarred Freije, a QB/LB from Southwestern High School, was the Player of the Year in Class C.
