LUMBERTON — As a defensive force all season, Red Springs senior linebacker Jerome Bass was named the Three Rivers Conference’s defensive player of the year after leading the league with 140 tackles and 16 tackles for loss.

Bass was the only individual award winner among the four Robeson County schools in the Three Rivers Conference, which released its awards and all-conference list on Monday.

He was one of five Red Devils named to the first-team all-conference list, along with senior defensive back Nichorie West, senior offensive guard Dante Floyd, senior linebacker Bobby McRae and sophomore running back Lee McLean.

Bass and West were returners to the all-conference list for the Red Devils, who went 9-4 this season and made it to the second round of the NCHSAA 2A state playoffs.

The coaches of the three teams that tied for first in the league, Robbie Priest from East Bladen, Luke Little from Whiteville and Russell Dove from South Columbus shared coach of the year honors. Offensive player of the year went to Whiteville’s Ty Moss, South Columbus swept the kicker and punter of the year awards with sophomore Adolfo Cardenas being picked as the conference’s top kicker and Robbie Spencer tabbed as the top punter.

St. Pauls senior quarterback Noah Wheeler closed his career with a second straight spot on the all-conference list. Joining him were senior running back Caleb Inman and offensive lineman Marquez Coleman and Ricky Chavis.

Junior receiver Jordan Waters and senior linebacker Sidney McKeithan were selected to the all-conference team for the second time for Fairmont. Senior quarterback Derrick Arnette and junior receiver Jayvon Morris joined the pair on the all-conference list.

South Robeson’s Darrius Brown earned his third straight all-conference nod to close out his career at running back for the Mustangs. Fellow tailback Darius Wright and junior defensive lineman Eric Lewis were also named all-conference.
