The 2012 high school football season – one of extremes for all three Dearborn County teams – produced some extreme gridiron talent as well.
While Lawrenceburg’s 11-2 sectional title run created plenty of buzz, East Central took yet another conference crown in a frustrating 7-3 year. South Dearborn plummeted, unexpectedly, to 0-10.
As Register Publications’ 18th annual all-county team reveals, players like Lawrenceburg runningback Chad Banschbach and East Central linebacker/runningback/wide receiver/long snapper Payton Stonefield don’t come along every year.
The two repeat county Player of the Year award winners set standards that may never be matched. Banschbach broke nearly every LHS rushing record en route to a 2,395-yard, 36-touchdown season, earning first-team All-State honors.
Stonefield merely capped a four-year varsity career as EC’s all-time leader in tackling points and solo tackles, while rushing for nearly 600 yards as a fill-in on offense. He also graded 100 percent for his entire career as the Trojans’ long and short snapper on special teams. All of this merited first-team All-State honors for Stonefield, too.
