Sixteen Hawks earn all-district football honors

Noun Harder, Squires headline Class A District 6 squad

Lynnville-Sully’s historic football season included a second straight district championship. And the closest game the Hawks had in Class A District 6 play was the 22-point road win over Madrid.

For their efforts, the Hawks placed 15 players on the all-district team. Senior Conner Maston was a first-team selection at two different positions. Head coach Mike Parkinson also was voted the district’s coach of the year.

Headlining the all-district squad were junior Corder Noun Harder and senior Kyle Squires. Noun Harder was the district’s Offensive MVP and Squires was named Defensive MVP.

The Hawks’ other first-team selections were Maston, seniors Lane Fisk, Mathias Torres, Caleb Rea, Tyson Jansen and juniors Keegan DeWitt and Lucas Sieck.

The second-team selections included seniors Bryce Richards and Jacob Fogle, sophomore Lannon Montgomery and freshman Dawson James. Junior C.J. Nikkel and senior Jager Huyser were the honorable mention choices.

All-district selections are based on statistics inside district play only.

Noun Harder led the district with 914 rushing yards, 16 rushing touchdowns and a 12.2 yards per carry average.

His 1,315 all-purpose yards and 20 total touchdowns also led the district and he added four catches for 85 yards and a TD.

Squires led the district with 45 tackles and his seven tackles for loss rank tied for fourth.

Torres was a first-team defensive lineman, Fisk earned first-team honors as a linebacker and Rea was chosen as first-team defensive back.

Fisk was second to Squires with 44 tackles and he finished with one sack, five tackles for loss and one fumble recovery.

Rea registered 17 tackles and two tackles for loss.

Jansen, DeWitt and Fogle all played significant roles up front for the Hawks. Jansen was a first-team offensive lineman, DeWitt earned first-team honors as a tight end/fullback and Fogle was a second-team offensive lineman.

The Hawks ranked first in the district with 38 offensive TDs and first with an 8.3 yards per carry average. The team’s 2,028 total yards ranked second and the 1,439 rushing yards were third.

Maston made the first team as a wide receiver and a punter. He tied for first with seven receiving TDs and ranked third with 389 receiving yards. His 14 catches ranked sixth and his 27.8 yards per catch average was tops in the district, but he did not have enough catches to qualify.

As a punter, Maston ranked fourth in yards per punt at 37.2, but was first among those who punted at least 10 times.

Sieck made the first team as a kicker. His 26-yard field goal was the only field goal kicked during district play and his six touchbacks and 24 made extra points both ranked first, too.

Montgomery had a QB rating of 184.5 and his completion percentage was 61.5. Both led the district among players who threw at least 39 passes.
