Peshtigo 's Berth Repeats As Lineman Of Year For Champs; Fischer Of Crivitz Is Top Back

Issue Date: November 13, 2013

The top three teams in the M-O Conference dominated league play and the post-season all-conference voting as well. League champion Peshtigo (7-0) along with Coleman (6-1) and Crivitz (5-2) accounted for 19 of the 25 spots on the starting all-conference units.

Peshtigo saw 7 of its finest players get selected, highlighted by two-time lineman of the year in 6’4, 230 pound senior Jordan Berth. This all-conference thing is becoming second nature for Berth, who was voted as a two-way pick for the third straight year and unanimously chosen as the top lineman.

Jordan is a 3 year starter on the first team defense, very quick, a smart defender and an outstanding tackler. He is a great special teams player as well, Peshtigo coach Sam Komp said. Jordan was named all-district as a junior by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association and this year as all-district on both offense and defense.

Joining Berth on the starting offense for Peshtigo are center Andrew Johnston (6’4, 300 pounds) and 6’3 quarterback Dakota Keller.

Johnston is a two-year starter, strong physically and assignment sure. He is the first center I’ve had who handled nose guards without help, Komp added. Dakota is a three-year starter, great size for a quarterback, strong runner and throws extremely well. The stats don’t do justice to his ability because often we were ahead early and he didn’t get to throw the football.

Defensively coach Sam Komp saw 4 other players earn starting posts in Berth, linebackers Gunner Kinney and Zack Neumann along with cornerback Jake Veness.

Gunner is a three year starter, leading tackler on our defense...very good at making quick reads and adjusting on the fly. Neumann is also a three-year starter as a linebacker, strong at the point of attack, very good blitzing and tackling opponents for losses. Veness is very quick, smart defender, outstanding tackler and a great special teams player, Komp explained.

Conference runner-up Coleman collected 6 starting spots, 3 on each side of the ball. Leading the way was senior fullback/linebacker Dexter Karban, who was a two-way selection. Karban was joined on defense by lineman Marc Lansin (5’5,145) and secondary ace Trevor Seewald.

Dexter was the engine of this team.  He was the focus of everyone we played.  Offensively teams schemed to stop inside trap and belly and defensively they had to ensure someone blocked him.  Even with this, Dexter had a very solid year.  He was patient and when there was a chance for a long run, he got it.  Dexter was an excellent leader and worker--both traits will be hard to replace, Coleman coach Jeff Bronson said.

Word that best describes Marc is relentless.  Marc always gives his best effort.  Size also is misleading as Marc is always the smallest guy on the line.  He uses his quickness and strength to get into the backfield.  Marc had to be doubled team and when he was not, he made the tackle. Trevor started one game at linebacker for us as that is where he ended playing last season.  Trevor 's greatest asset is his athleticism.  He is quick, changes directions well, and tackles well.  Not only did he lead the team in interceptions, he was near the lead in passes defended, Bronson added.

Offensively the Cougars saw Richard Geimer and Joy Styczynski pick up first team line posts while Karban was in the backfield.

Richard is the kid why people go into coaching.  He waited until his senior year to have an opportunity to play full time and when he did, he had success.  Richard is a smart player and knows every spot on our offensive line and the responsibility of each spot.  Besides the knowledge of the offense, his technique was near perfect.  These two aspects of his game helped him overcome the size he gave up every game.  Our guards were the strength of our team when healthy and Richard 's play was one of the main reasons, Bronson said.

Joe Styczynski was our other guard.  His favorite play, for the moment, is 25 power OT.  He is the puller on that play and we had success with every halfback that ran that play.  Joe is a two-year starter at right guard and continues to learn the nuances of the position to continually improve.  We expect big things from Joe heading into next season.

Looking at the selections of his players, Bronson added... "two common denominators for all of our 1st team players is heart and the hatred for losing.  Nightly we give up anywhere to 30-50 pounds up front and regardless if it is Marc or the other defensive lineman or Richard, Joe or the other offensive lineman,  they keep working until they find a way to have success.  The seniors that we will lose this year will be hard to replace. The hope is that under Marc, Joe and the other experience members leadership and guidance we can learn from the past two seasons and continue to improve the program.

While Peshtigo and Coleman accounted for 13 starting positions, the Crivitz Wolverines came up with five including the back of the year in senior Ben Fischer. Standing at 6’1 and weighing 190 pounds, Fischer was the target of every opposing defense and still managed to lead the conference in scoring with 140 points on 20 touchdowns and 10 conversion runs while finishing as the number two runner with 98 carries for 990 yards.

Ben has 2600+ yards rushing in his career....the leading scorer in our conference this year (3rd all time for a single year)...averaged a touchdown every 5 carries. He was also our team MVP for the second straight year. Ben was also a starting OLB where he had 2 interceptions and did a great job with containment. I think that a lot of teams ran away from Ben 's side of the field because of his outstanding speed and tackling ability. Runs a 4.63 40 yard dash and has a 4.0 GPA. Has a scholarship offer from West Point and was offered a preferred walk on from Wisconsin, Crivitz coach Jeff Ott explained.

Two other Crivitz gridders earned offensive starting spots in tight end Jacob Sawinski and 260 pound lineman Zach Timblin.

Jake was our leading receiver with 14 receptions for 235 yards...has the size and quickness to be a tough match up for most DBs and LBs. Zach was our starting left tackle for the last two years and became our starting right tackle this year. He was by far our most improved player...footwork and quickness off of the ball were outstanding considering his large size, Ott added.

Defensively, the Wolverines saw lineman Kolt Collier (6’0, 205) join linebacker Fischer and cornerback Micah Sessler on the starting unit.

On defense, Kolt Collier was a one man wrecking crew...first on our team in defensive points for the second straight year. Kolt is the first lineman to lead our team in tackling since 1997 and he has done it for the last two years. He dropped about 20 pounds since last year and with his tenacity, he was a very difficult kid to get blocked, Ott said. Micah was our starting safety where he was second in defensive points. He lead the conference in interceptions with 6 including on for a teedee. Great hands which showed because he was also second team all-conference as a receiver.

Despite finishing last in the conference, the Lena-STAA Titans saw Bernie Beyer named a two-way starter in the line and at tight end.

Wausaukee receiver Aaron Schlies picked up a starting post as an end and punter. Gillett’s Dylan Roberts, who snagged a league high 32 passes for 632 yards and 9 touchdowns, earned the other starting end spot.

Suring’s tireless running back Dillon Kempen, the leading rusher in the conference with 1,194 yards on 165 carries, rounded out the starting offensive unit.

All region honors for M-O players saw Berth pick up a two-way starting spot, Beyer at defensive end and Fischer at running back.

The second team consisted of four Suring players on defense...lineman Tyler Fisher, linebacker John Horst and back Creo VanBellinger along with Horst as an offensive lineman.

Peshtigo earned 3 spots on the second team....defensive back Levi Sanborn, tight end Neumann and running back Trevor Igl. Coleman landed Kevin Lansin and Jackson Margis on defense with Trevor Seewald picking up a running back post. A trio of Wolverines were named to the second team...linebacker Sam Banaszak, end Micah Sessler and lineman Kolt Collier.
