“It’s a tremendous honor for our seniors,” Fountain said. “Obviously, you’d love for every one of your seniors to be named to the team, but I think these eight guys serve as great representatives of their class and their team.

“We’ve had all-stars named to the team in previous years, but I don’t think we’ve ever had as many as this.”

The eight EA seniors were members of the 2014 AISA Class AAA state championship Cougars.
