Daniel Williamson Received the “Power of 21” Award, and Jacob Leicht Tabbed MVP at Annual Post-season Awards Night
The Brossart Football Mustang family gathered on Sunday evening and honored its players at the Annual Awards night in the Munninghoff Theater. It was a well done event, worthy of the 39 players who put together this memorable football season.. As I sat there watching and listening to all of the accolades being bestowed on the participants I couldn’t help but flashback to an earlier time when the group being recognized hadn’t been so successful, and our program hadn’t reached such lofty heights. On that occasion in 2014 Coach Paul Wiggins unveiled T-Shirts which read, “Expect More.” While being Class 1A champions is not our ultimate long-term goal, it is certainly a giant step for our football program in our growth process, and a fulfillment of that two word declaration as our program rose from the brink of extinction to where we have come today. While it is unrealistic to fathom that undefeated seasons and annual championships will become an annual event, it is also not out of the realm of possibility that we can continue to “Expect More” as we write the history of Brossart football. This group has certainly given us a wonderful and solid foundation on which to continue to build the program.
The awards presented were:
Special Teams MVP – Andrew “Dewey” Schwartz (who I was seeing for the first time without his helmet on).
Defensive Co-MVPs – Kaleb Lukes and David Govan
Defensive Line Co-MVPs – Alex Rice and Austiin Schadler
Offensive Line MVP – Thomas Sayers
Offensive MVP – Jed Martin
The “Power of 21” Award – Daniel Williamson
Team MVP – Jacob Leicht
Coach Joey Martin to Step Away from everyday coaching
One ot the things that I was not prepared for, was the announcement that Coach Joey Martin was stepping away from the rigors of coaching on an everyday basis.
Joey played on our inaugural football team and experienced 20 consecutive losses before every getting a win. He must wonder if our present day players who call the MAC home, and won every regular season game and district playoff game, understand that wins are earned and re to be appreciated, and programs are built upon the toil and success of the teams which preceded them.
Joey Martin exudes the pride that he takes in this Brossart Football Program and takes ownership in it. He promised that he would remain very much a part of the program, which is a good thing because at Brossart we need our Joey Martins.
We certainly thank Coach Martin for his years of commitment and dedication to the program and wish him success in all of hs future endeavors.
