Malden's Romello McCoy was awarded the Carr Trophy as the most outstanding football player in the SEMO Conference on Wednesday night during the 67th annual Poplar Bluff Letter Club Gridiron Banquet in Poplar Bluff.
McCoy was one of three finalists for the award, handed out since 1979. Sikeston's Kyland Gross and Caruthersville's Darrell Monroe were also recognized before McCoy became the first player from Malden to win the award.
Sikeston's Blake Flannigan was awarded the Derland Moore Award as the most outstanding defensive player in the conference. Farmington's Roper Garrett earned the first such award last year.
The guest speaker was Brian Mohnsen, the defensive coordinator at Southeast Missouri State University.
The Carr Trophy is selected by a committee of eight members composed of area high school football officials.
Also recognized during the banquet, which was attended by just over 300, were the all-conference first teams for the SEMO North, Central and South:
