Mendocino football players earn all-state honors

UKIAH – Three members from the Mendocino College football team earned all-state honors.

Sophomores Jermaine Jacobs (Sacramento) and Markins Anilus (Miami, FL) were selected on defense and freshman Jacob Laudenslayer (Modesto) was selected on offense.

Jacobs, who was named Bay Valley Conference defensive player of the year while playing on the defensive line, finished the season with 65 tackles and 11 sacks.

“I appreciate the honor and I owe it all to my teammates and I give God all the glory,” Jacobs said.

On his way to earning first team all-conference honors as a linebacker, Anilus recorded 90 tackles and 14 sacks.

“It is a great honor to be recognized as one of the best linebackers in the state of California,” Anilus said.

Laudenslayer was named Bay Valley Conference offensive player of the year for his performance as both a quarterback and receiver and was selected as all-state wide receiver. Laudenslayer accounted for 1,918 yards and 22 touchdowns.

“It is a great honor to be selected to the all-state team, especially considering all the great players playing in California,” Laudenslayer said.

Sophomore offensive lineman Mike Padilla (Santa Rosa) was selected to the JC Grid-Wire Academic All-American Team. Padilla, who was selected all-conference, carries a 3.9 GPA and is a Mathematics major.

“To have these young men selected for these teams is a great honor. It completes an already tremendous season,” Mendocino Head Coach Tom Gang said.
