Werner and Bieber Are Players of The Year

Issue Date: December 12, 2019

Small School division has rereleased its all conferecen lists and topping the charts this season was Coleman with 13 of the spots available. Crivitz also took a good share of the first team selections with Nine spots while the Northern Elite Predators took six spots.

The Coleman Cougars certinaly didn't disappoint their fans this season, especially in the pst season which saw the Cougars ignoring their low seeding number and take down a couple highly seeded teams, pushing further than any other of our area football programs.

The Coleman crew had many design players but a few stood out as some of the years best. John, Bieber was one of those top player, and he was honored with the award of the Defensive Player of the Year. Teammate Hunter Woulf also receiver a top honor with the Offenisve Lineman of the Year while Hunter Woulf bagged the Defensive Lineman of the Year Award.

Wolverine Jaden Werner secured the other top honor for his Wolverines, being named the years best Offensive Player.

The Coleman first team list however was the longest with those 13 taking the biggest portion of the selections.

Tyler Blanchard made his way on the first team offense list along with Owen Kinziger, Payton nelson, John Bieber, Hunter Woulf and Spencer Karban.

"The two backs Owen Kinziger and Tyler Blanchard each owe some of their success to the line," said Coleman Headf Coach Jeff Bronson. "We are a run to set-up a run offense and having both our fullback and one of halfbacks gather all-conference honors so that the team did something right."

Bronson went on to describe Blanchards role, "Tyler was our physical presence regardless of blocking or running.  If we needed short yardage--he was getting it.  Tyler was a complete back as he blocked when he was asked to, both run and pass, and caught the ball effectively out of the backfield."

Bronson then made mention of what made Kinziger so vital to the team, "Owen had a terrific freshman year.  He is a little hard to see at the beginning of plays and that was a benefit.  You could see Owen gain confidence each carry and game.  Looking forward to seeing if he can continue and surpass what he did this year."

Also joining his teammate on the first team list was Payton Nelson.

"Payton Nelson gaining first team was awesome for the staff to see," said Bronson.  "Payton is an athlete and in a passing offense his skills would show much more than what we currently do.  We shifted philosophy a few seasons ago to get a wideout to get an athlete like Payton more opportunities in open space.  We started the season with that in mind, but we ended up playing more double tight and he sacrificed some catches and snaps knowing it made us a better team.  As a coach, it was what you hoped a senior would do, and Payton was excellent the entire season knowing he would still get his chances."

But Nelson was another Cougar who went both ways so Bronson went on to describe his efforts on defense, "Defensively, Payton set the tone for our continued play in the defense backfield.  His coverage was solid all year and he had several big plays from running down runners and creating turnovers.  He was more than deserving to be named first team defensive back."

Jumping onto the defensive first team list along with Nelson were John Bieber, Brody Darga, Brody Zahn, Hunter Woulf, Tyler Blanchard and Cayden Blintz.

"John Bieber at linebacker was our catalyst," said Bronson. "He made plays from sideline to sideline and made quite a few plays in the opposition's backfield. His experience definitely showed."

Bronson went on to discerned more of the defensive unit which did so well this season, "Our defensive line was a pleasant surprise.  To have both defensive ends and defensive tackles named first team more than justified the switch from the 3-5-3 to the 4-2-5. Our ends of Blanchard and Woulf were just as good against the run as pass.  Having that extra body create pressure was significant as one of the four guys had to be single blocked.  If the ends were doubled, one of the inside guys were left with one man.  Both Brodys, Darga and Zahn, took advantage of being single blocked.  Darga was a first year player who made at least one big tackle for loss a game.  Wish he started playing earlier as he was just learning what he could do.  Zahn had a very good year as a first year player in our program.  His role will only increase the next two years.  The group was terrific and one of the reasons we only gave up 7 points during the conference year."

Crivitz was also well rerensented this year in the sections of first teams as they took nine of the spots. On the offensive end of things the Wolverines saw Jaden Werner, Tony Jopek, Dawson Angriest and John Danielson all make the list while the defensive elections were conprisded of Angriest, Jopek, Aaron Sellen, Kevin Krychowiak and Jaden Werner.

Starting with the years Offensive Player of the Year Crivitz Head Coach Matt Brenier said a few things about why Werner was so important, "Jaden Werner QB/Punter/Offensive Player of the year, has been a quality player for us his whole career, he was responsible for making our offense go and is a very dependable player.  Jaden was a dual threat player that could hurt you with his passing and running abilities."

Werner passed his way to 1091 yards on the season while getting 17 TDs. He made 133 attempt while completing 71 which is 109.1 yards per game.

Rushing he picked up 277 yards and four TDs on 73 carries for an average of 3.8 yards per carry. He had one pick-six on the season while playing defensive back.

Bernier then discussed what role Jopek played this year, "Tony Jopek our Running Back/Linebacker, Also made the all Region Team.  Tony plays with great toughness and was asked to do a lot this year.  He was dangerous with the ball in his hands and was also our leader for defensive stats."

On the ground Jopek rushed his way to 766 yards on 72 carries while scoring 12 touchdowns. He averaged 76.6 yards per game and 10.6 yards a carry. Defensively Jopek made 42 tackles and one sack.

Dawson Andrist was another two way first teamer for the Wolverines, display great rpowess at the positions of running back and Linebacker.

"Dawson has been a great two way player for us, said Brenier. Offensively he had big play capabilities that teams had to defend."

Andrist rolled in 28 passes this season, taking them a total of 510 yards for 11 TDs. He averaged 18.2 yards per catch. defensive he made 37 tackles and three interceptions.

What made the Wolverines such an offense power this year had everything to do with their line and their defensive line as well as Brenier described the reason they did so well, "John played guard and center for us this year and really did a great job taking care of the interior line for us.  I look forward to having him back for his senior season, Aaron really excelled at the end of the year and could play anywhere on the defensive line, a smart player that  knows his role and started both ways for us, and Kevin split time between defensive line and linebacker.  Kevin likes to play physical and is always around the ball. 

Also making the first team list were a couple of the Northern Elite Predators. Andrew Niven who made it on the offensive first team list and Josh Wallschlaeger who went on the list both ways.

Head Coach Ben Laarman took time make mention of the hard work these guys did and what made them important to this years squad,"Josh Wallschlaeger was our leader this season. He always played with great effort and great technique both in practice and in games.

Gabe Wysocki was a captain as a junior. He has a rare combination of size and speed and works very hard in practice every day to constantly improve. Andrew Niven was another junior who was elected captain. He was our fastest player but was also tough and wasn't afraid to hit. He also has a lot of skill as a kicker. Landon Kalkofen is one of those kids who has a natural knack for the game of football. He loves to hit and was an outstanding tackler. As a ballcarrier we could always count on him to gain yards after contact."
