The PCM football team dominated its five Class 2A District 6 opponents this season.

The Mustangs scored at least 45 points and averaged 48.4 points per game on offense, while the defense allowed just 13.8 points per contest.

For their efforts, 20 PCM football players were named to the all-district team, three scored superlative honors and head coach Greg Bonnett was named the District co-coach of the Year.

Adrien Robbins

Junior Adrien Robbins led the district in rushing on his way to co-offensive MVP, junior Finn Wilson was the co-defensive MVP and senior Wyatt Schutte earned Lineman MVP after helping the Mustangs lead the district rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and total yards.

Robbins, Schutte and Wilson were joined on the all-district first team by senior offensive linemen Mark Bussan and Jacob Burns, junior quarterback Gavin Van Gorp, senior tailback Wyatt Wheeler, senior wide receivers Griffin Olson and Gabe Hobbs, sophomore kicker Dominic Witt, senior offensive utility player Jack Jungling, junior defensive linemen Trenner Van Dyke, Kaden Clark and Allias Nolin, junior linebacker Brevin DeRaad, senior defensive back Justin Johnston and senior defensive utility player Jacob Wendt.
