Two Wildcats Named To All State Teams

Two Livingston Academy seniors have been named to the All-State Teams in their respective sports.

Senior football player Raven Carpenter was named to the All-State team as a wide receiver, a role he filled in addition to playing quarterback in relief of sophomore Nathan Cowgill, after an early season injury to starter Parker Coleman. He did well in both roles, and was a key part of LA’s playoff run.

“Raven is a coach’s dream player,” said head coach Bruce Lamb. “He works just as hard off the field as he does on the field. He is a selfless player, who would do whatever he could to help his team.” Raven is known for his toughness and commitment to his teammates. “He played the last three games with a broken hand because he didn’t want to let anyone down,” Lamb said.

Apart from his toughness on the gridiron, Carpenter was praised by his coach for his work ethic and sunny demeanor. “Raven always had a huge smile on his face no matter the situation.” Lamb said of him. “He is well deserving of this All State honor and we [are] so proud he is being honored for his hard work and dedication to LA football.”

Senior Kaitlin Huntley was named to the All State soccer team for Class AA as a forward. “It is [a] really big honor to be named All State.  I feel privileged to have even been considered,” she said. When asked how she felt to be named to the team, she said, “Overall, I was very excited to receive this honor. I have worked long and hard through my career and it is a great honor to receive this award.”
