Area MONLPC Top Gridders Annouced

Predators Leads Area MONLPC

Small First Team Selections


The all-conference voting for the area's football teams has concluded and a list of our area greats were honored. Covering the MONLPC-Small division the area saw 14 of its athletes receive the prestigious honor of first team player.

Starting with the MONLPC-Small the Northern Elite Predators were well represented along with the Crivitz Wolverines. The Predators had seven first team players. They are Brent Dumke at offensive back. Alex Hagerty at linebacker, offensive back and Defensive Player of the Year. Laden Kaldor at lineman and hybrid, Braiden Bousley at lineman and Ben Oratch at kicker. Crivitz had Michael Retza, Kody Richlen, Travis Kudick, Jakob Voss and Charlie Johnsen. While the Suring Eagles had one, Tyler McDougal at defensive back.

The Predators' Hagerty had some impressive numbers. On offense he was 14 of 30 passing, 140 yards, 1 TD 1 INT, while also adding 162 rushes for 1353 yards, 18 TD's.

"He is a true team player and a leader," said coach Ben Laarman. "He's a tremendous runner and maybe even a better lead blocker for his teammates. He has good speed and good moves in the open field but also was a punishing runner who always picked up extra yards after contact."

On defense Hagerty had 73 tackles (51 solo), 15 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery returned for a touchdown.

"Alex is a great football player," said Laarman. "He loves the game, and it shows in the way he plays. He plays with speed, passion, and energy. He was a captain and one of a group of seniors who really worked to create a family atmosphere on our team. He embodied the tough, team-first mindset we try to instill in our team."

Ben Oratch got an election at the kicker postion.

"Ben Oratch, was 24 of 34 kicking extra points and two touchbacks on kickoffs," said Laarman. "Ben did a nice job kicking for us, both on kickoffs and on extra points. He improved throughout the year and was at his best at the end of the year."

Laarman went on to comment about how Dumke contributed, "in the middle, Brent Dumke had 43 tackles, one forced fumble, one interception returned for a touchdown," siad Laarman. "Brent struggled through shoulder issues throughout the year, but when he was right, he was a tremendous free safety. He's an aggressive player who loves to hit and make plays around the line of scrimmage."

With elections on both sides of the ball, Kaldor performed at a high level. "Landen Kaldor had 86 carries for 307 yards and 7 touchdowns, 1 for 2 passing for 31 yards, 4 receptions 107 yards 1 touchdown," siad Laarman. "Landen is the definition of a hybrid player. He is a good athlete with speed, quickness, and strength who can play any position we need him to. On defense he had 39 tackles (13 for loss), 3 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, 1 forced fumble. Landen is a compact, strong athlete who is very quick off the ball which makes him difficult to block. He is very disruptive to opposing offenses, and they often had to devote two and sometimes three blockers to him."

The Wolverines had six players make the first team in the MONLPC-Small. On defense it was Micheal Retza who earned a first team at linebacker along with Kody Richlen who earned his spot for defensive lineman. On the offensive end Travis Kudick received a selection for first team quarterback. Jakob Voss

Three Rangers Picked

for 8-Man's Top Team


In the MONLPC-8 man conference, the area was honored with the election of four athletes. One from Lena/STAA and three from Wausaukee.

For the Wausaukee Rangers, it was Matthew Delfosse who received a first team vote for his play at linebacker along with Hayden Renikow who received his nomination at punter. Joe Rozivka was nominated for the offensive line.

Matthew Delfosse, who also received a second team quarterback nomination, ended the season with 38 tackles, 29 solo, 2 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 4 pass deflections. From the quarterback position he amassed 1100 rushing yards and 17 TD's on 191 attempts, 864 passing yards on 46 completions, 11 TD's and 6 INTs

"Matt was a great leader for us both on and off the field," said Wausaukee coach Grant Russ.  "He was a solid player at defensive end, where teams would routinely run away from him.  He also did a great job of pressuring the quarterback on pass downs and deflecting passes at the line of scrimmage. Matt was our biggest running threat on offense and also threw the ball very well.  Matt's ability to run and throw the ball were a big reason for our team success this year."

Joey Rozivka who also received a 2nd team linebacker vote had 81 tackles, 61 solo, 2.5 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, and 1 interception

"Joey was an outstanding two-way player for us this year," said Russ. "He was a great all-around consistent blocker for us on offense.  He was also a tremendous tackler for us on defense.  He finished 3rd in our conference in tackles despite playing two less games due to injury.

Russ went on to explain Hayden Renikow's importance to this season's success. "Hayden did an excellent job in his first year punting for us.  He averaged 36 yards per punt and put 3 punts inside the 20.  More importantly, he only allowed 4 punts to be returned during conference play.  We were able to gain good field position on many occasions because of his abilities."

The lone Lena/STAA Titan on the MONLPC 8-Man first team was none other than St. Thomas Aquinas' Jack Farley.

"Farley was our leading receiver and demanded the respect from the other teams," said Titans co-head coach Dale Lange. "He was double teamed most of the time. He was the kind of receiver who could get into the clear and would bring down any pass that was near him."

He went on to discuss his role on the defense, "He was the player who covered the opponents best receiver. He also filled on running plays and was a strong attribute to our team. Jack is a very talented athlete and young man. Jack played hard even when he was injured and tried to get the rest of the team to play at his level."

Second team nominations went to Lena/STAA's Farley for defensive back, Tyler Stuart, Christian Hornick and Tyson Marquardt.

On the second team Wausaukee's Delfosse was joined by Rozivka at linebacker.
