My coaches helped me a lot this season by showing me the spots I need to improve in as a D-linemen, O-lineman, and running back. Coach Bjostad, and Coach Hahn put me in the right spots at the right time,and I just showed out and made big time plays. They trusted me to be the best player on the field and I showed them that I was”, shared sophomore Harlem Miller.
Dylan Holloway shares, “I’m really thankful for getting named and honored. I had so much fun playing these last four years under Bjostad. He’s shown me so much to improve my game. He’s a great coach”.
Theron Wedel said, “It’s an honor for my name to get recognized and I’m really going to miss playing with all the guys next year. I thank my teammates and my coaches for putting me in that position”. Also commenting on his peers is Junior, Cauy Scripsick, “It was exciting and an honor, considering I played 4 games. I really did not expect it, but I’m happy to see the success that our boys had with honors. Everyone deserves it and we would like to thank the whole coaching staff for the hard work they put in”. Senior Chance Winter humbly stated, “I think being named all league isn’t just about my personal performance. It feels good to be recognized for this team’s relentless work over the summer and during the season. Playing under Coach Bjostad has been a blessing. From day one, he has been a believer in me. I’ve never met a guy more committed to creating a winning program and developing me as a young man”.
