The Beardstown Tigers, under the first year head coach Tyler Buhlig’s guidance, had a total of 13 players selected on the Prairieland Blue All-Conference Teams.
Unanimous Selection
Alex Myles (Sr.) was the only BHS Tiger to be selected on the first team on both the offensive and defensive units of the Prairieland Blue All-Conference teams.
Myles, the outstanding O&B running back, rushed for 1,028 yards on 112 carries and scored 11 touchdowns (seven on the ground and four receiving).
The outstanding athlete also led the team in solo tackles with 45 and finished with 71 total tackles  including 26 assists. Myles was a unanimous All-Conference selection as a defensive back.
The loss of Myles in the opening series with a knee injury seriously dampened the Tigers chances in the playoffs.
First Team
Also selected to the first team in the Blue Division of the Prairieland was Paul Crowe (Sr.) offensive guard, Jon Kramer (Sr.) as a wide receiver, and an at-large selection as quarterback, Gus Vermillion (Jr.).
Second Team
Receiving second team honors were Blake Lewis (Sr.) offensive tackle, Cole Huey (Sr.)as an inside linebacker, Mac Gann (Sr.) was selected as a center. Also named was D’Ante McWilliams (So.) to the second team as both a kicker and as a punter.
Special Mention
Eight Tigers earned special mention in the Blue Division.
Dan Guzman (Sr.) as defensive lineman, Colt Hoenes (Jr.) and Mac Gann as outside linebackers. Josh Watson (Sr.) was named as an outside linebacker, Alex Schultz (Jr.) was selected as wide receiver, and Gus Vermillion (Jr.) and Kramer (Sr.) as defensive backs.
