It was a definite dozen for the North Callaway Thunderbirds.
Led by a quartet of unanimous picks - seniors Vance Allen, Zac Eads, Davonte Kyles and Ryan Pezold - North Callaway placed 12 players on the recently announced 2012 all-Eastern Missouri Conference football team.
The Thunderbirds, who finished the season with an 8-3 record, also captured the EMO championship with a perfect 5-0 mark in their return to the conference after a six-year absence.
Allen - a running back - and Eads, a lineman, were unanimous selections on the first-team offense. Kyles, a lineman, and Pezold - a linebacker - were unanimous choices on the first-team defense.
