With Football season underway, you know the top players to watch in your area. Below are some unsung heroes who may fly below the radar, but are assests to their team.


Austin Perry – Afton

This is a kid that has kept a positive attitude and willing to work hard with very little playing time. He will go above and beyond to help someone in need.


Hayden Jones – Bluejacket

Hayden is that big lineman type that never gets his name in the paper but goes to work in the trenches on both sides of the ball and is a force and a lot to handle for the opposition.


Johnny Williamson – Jay

Johnny will be a three-year starter on the offensive line. Johnny looks to have a big year for us protecting the QB and RBs. Johnny is a great leader on and off the field and is involved in student council and will be valedictorian of the senior class.


Prince Ward – Vinita

A senior who has a chance to be a Division I kicker/punter. His coach says, “He is as good as I've seen in my 23 years.”


Brady Chenoweth – Welch

Brady came off an injury last season and provided a great spark at defensive end. He may not get his name in the paper for the most tackles but what he proved he could do for his team last year will be very important to their success this year.



Sawyer Sherrell – Colcord

Sawyer is already taking a leadership role on the team as a sophomore.


Caleb Reding – Kansas

Comes to practice and leads with work ethic, not talking or yelling. Does everything at full speed, does everything asked of him.


Daltyn Strickland – Salina

Daltyn started at center for most of the season last year and got lots of playing time at linebacker also. He is a very hard worker and a tough player. His coach knows he can count on Daltyn to do his best at anything he asks him to do.


Max Munoz – Bartlesville

Max plays the H-back position and does not get much praise. He is a huge part of what the Bruins do and how they find success.
