Payson High School coach Byron Quinlan has no qualms with the number of Longhorn football players chosen to the all section team, even though opportunities for individual prep football players to gain postseason recognition greatly decreased with this year’s reconfiguration from a conference/region to division/section format. “With 12 players (honored), I was pleased; moving from four conferences to three sections made it tough to be recognized,” said Quinlan following last week’s coaches’ voting meeting at Fountain Hills High School.
