A Conard High School senior who set a school record this year has been named to the Connecticut High School Coaches Association (CHSCA) Class LL All-State team.
He was honored along with other 2017-18 All-State football team members from throughout the state at a banquet Jan. 14 at the Aqua Turf in Southington.
In his final game as a Chieftain, against West Hartford crosstown rival Hall High School, tight end Aidan Stabnick broke the school record for receiving yards with a career total of 706.
Stabnick was the first in the school’s history to eclipse 700 receiving yards, eclipsing Karon Golding’s record of 642 set in 2014, and also set a school record with 77 receptions.
Stabnick is just the second Conard player to earn CHSCA All-State honors in recent years. Nate Richam, Class of 2016, was also named All-State, and before that the last honoree was Jonathan Esposito, Class of 2011.
According to Conard’s statistical records, the last tight end to earn All-State honors was Ben Alsup in 1988.
Stabnick also earned All-League honors in 2017.
