Local talent was on display during the winter season as reflected in the all-state small school rosters released Thursday by the New York State Sportswriters Association.


Prattsburgh’s Mason Putnam led all small school local selections with a first-team honor in class D.


Mason Putnam averaged 32.4 points per game during the regular season on 69 percent from two and 44 percent from beyond the arc. He also added 6.2 rebounds per game, 4.9 assists and 4.6 steals per game.


"I was proud of myself, I’ve worked hard to get to this point," said Mason Putnam of his first team selection.


Mason garnered fifth-team honors his sophomore year followed by a spot on the second-team his junior year culminating with the first team selection this season.


"I think each year I’ve worked harder and harder to get to that point," said Mason Putnam. "It just shows the hard work paid off."


Junior Kris Johnson earned an honorable mention for the Vikings after averaging 12 points and five rebounds per contest. Johnson turned it on for the Vikings in the postseason, upping his point per game total to 17.7.


"His best games came toward the end of the season and he dealt with an injury early in the season," Prattsburgh head coach Brian Putnam said. "I think he’s deserving for sure. He meant a bunch to our team."


The duo of Johnson and Putnam propelled the Vikings to a 15-5 regular season record and a Section V Class D2 championship.


"They were huge for the success we had this season," said Brian Putnam. "Mason was Mason. He scored on the outside and played good defense on the perimeter. Kris was one of the big rebounders for us. He took care of us offensively and defensively."


Also in Class D, sectional champion Avoca had three players earn all-state honors.


Tristan Stark was named fourth-team, Jonothan Jensen was named to the sixth-team and Pacey Hopkins earned seventh-team honors.


Stark, a senior, led the Tigers in scoring with 15.4 points and 8.8 rebounds during the regular season for Avoca.


"Tristan is a workhorse," Avoca head coach Mike Stowe said. "He was a hustler and did all the dirty work for us inside."


Jensen, a senior, posted 15 points per contest to go with 8.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists.


"Jon came in and had to acclimate being a foreign exchange student and the transition was seamless," said Stowe. "He was an offensive threat every time he touched the ball."


Hopkins, a sophomore, averaged 13 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists.


"Pacey is old beyond his years," Stowe said. "To come in and be able to sit with a group of eight seniors and be accepted says a lot about him. He was my best on-ball defender and a threat to score everytime he touched the ball."


The trio led the Tigers to a Section V class D title and an undefeated record before the season was cut short.


"They all carved out their own roles," said Stowe of the trio. "We had a pretty good starting five. These three guys that made the state team knew their roles and contributed to our season."


Bradford’s Jordan Sutryk earned a sixth-team honor in Class D adter averaging 19.4 points for the Braves. Bradford went 15-5 in the regular season.


In Class C, Watkins Glen’s Issac Mcllroy earned a spot on the fourth team after averaging 15 points and leading the Senecas to a 17-2 regular season record and a spot in the Section V Class C title game.
