Senior Randall Cole earned unanimous first-team, all-North Central Missouri Conference honors on both sides of the ball, one of five Fulton players to earn postseason league honors.
Cole — a 5-foot-8, 153-pounder — took first-team honors as a receiver after leading Fulton with 35 receptions for 549 yards and two touchdowns. As a free safety, Cole paced the Hornets with 89 total tackles, including 54 solo stops to go along with two fumble recoveries and an interception.
Junior Dalten Ford earned first-team accolades as a punter and junior Derrick Coffelt was a second-team selection on the offensive line. Junior Kegan Lee was named to the second team as a linebacker, racking up 82 tackles and a sack.
Sophomore defensive back Noah Braun also was named to the second team, totaling 52 tackles and two interceptions. Braun returned one of those interceptions 85 yards for a touchdown in a 26-13 loss to Moberly on Sept. 14.
The Hornets lost to Boonville 48-28 in Class 3, District 6 play on Oct. 25 to finish the season at 2-8 overall. Fulton went 2-5 in the NCMC.
