Noun Harder headlines 12 Hawks on all-district football squad

Lynnville-Sully won Class A District 6 with 6-0 mark

Lynnville-Sully’s Corder Noun Harder was injured early in his debut high school season last fall.

Noun Harder led Class A District 6 in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and yards per carry for the league champion Hawks and was named the District 6 Offensive MVP for his efforts.

Noun Harder was one of seven Hawks to earn a spot on the all-district first team. L-S head coach Mike Parkinson was voted District 6 Coach of the Year.

Joining him were seniors Braden Alberts and Ty Jones and juniors Kyle Squires, Mathias Torres, Lane Fisk and Conner Maston.

Senior Miles Mintle, sophomore Max Mintle and senior Gage Elscott were second-team selections and Maston also earned second-team recognition as a punter. The Hawks’ two honorable mention selections were juniors Jager Huyser and Caleb Rea.
