Football: Herald All-Area First Team


DL/Jake Willging     Fulton

The season: Unaninimous all-conference selection. Recorded 34 solo tackles, 35 assists and 2.5 sacks. Also named second-team all-conference on offensive line.

The word: “He’s one of those guys the other team had to account for every time it broke the huddle. One of the best compliments is other teams ran away from him.” — Coach Patrick Lower

DL/Riley McDowell     Central DeWitt

The season: Second on the team with 67 tackles; in on 15 tackles for lost yardage and four sacks, both team highs.

The word: “Riley really worked hard, improved himself and was disciplined. He played on the other side of the line of scrimmage which was really spectacular. He was our ring leader in being able to contain the running game.” — Coach Mike Miller

DL/Thomas Smith     Clinton

The season: Impact player on defense with six sacks and 14 tackles for lost yardage. Recorded 42 tackles overall, 34 of them solos.

The word: “When Thomas explodes off the line, he’s tough to block. A lot of his tackles for loss were because several teams thought they could get outside of him, but he was able to close. Just using his physical presence out there provided leadership.” — Coach Lee Camp

DL/Austin Shoup     Morrison

The season: Earned first-team All-Three Rivers Conference North Division honors.

The word: “Austin uses his speed and athleticism to explode off the ball and create plays in the offensive backfield.” — Coach Cory Bielema

LB/Austin Regenwether     Fulton

The season: First-team all-conference on defense and offense, unanimous at running back with 1,233 yards rushing and 18 TDs. On defense he recorded 118 tackles, 58 solos.

The word: “As a linebacker, he came into his own. He impressed us as an inside linebacker covering sideline to sideline against the run and pass. He provided a rock we could lean on all year.” — Coach Patrick Lower
