Vikings make all-state team

Moriah is represented on the New York State Sportswriters Association All-State football team.

The Vikings, who reached the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Class D semifinals last season, had Nick Gilbo, Brandon Stoddard and Sergio Comacho named to the all-state squad.

Gilbo was named first-team linebacker. He was second-team all-state linebacker in 2009.

Gilbo, also a fullback, was the anchor of Moriah's defense. The Vikings limited Champlain Valley Athletic Conference opponents to 93.9 yards on the ground a game.

Moriah, which relies on a strong running game year-in and year-out, had two offensive linemen honored.

Stoddard, a 300-pound tackle, was named to the first-team all-state offensive line.

Comacho was named to the third-team offensive line. He was a third team selection in 2009, also.

The Vikings had 2,900 yards and 34 touchdowns on the ground last season.

Moriah reached the state Class D championship game in 2007 and 2008 before falling the state semifinal last season.
