Four Spring Grove football players were among the 23 chosen for the 9-Man All-State Football team and one received Honorable Mention. All five were also honored by the Post Bulletin; two were chosen All-Area, and three were chosen as All-Area Honorable Mention.

The All-State Team is selected by the 9-Man football coaches.

Senior SAM SANNESS was chosen by the coaches as the only All-State tight end. Junior ALEX FOLZ is one of four All-State quarterbacks.

Senior cornerback CULLE$N PATTERSON was named to the defensive squad as one of three defensive backs. Junior ETHAN MATZKE is one of five defensive linemen selected to the squad.

NOAH ELTON, a junior wide receiver/linebacker, was chosen by coaches as a member of the All-State Honorable Mention squad.


While Folz and Sanness were All-State offensive players, they were named to the Post Bulletin All-Area Defensive Team. Sanness is one of four defensive linemen and Folz is one of four defensive backs on the squad.

Elton, Matzke and Patterson were All-Area Honorable Mention picks.

It’s probably not a surprise to area football fans that four Caledonia players were also All-Area selections. Warrior quarterback Owen King is the Player of the Year Award. He was joined by wide receiver Jordan Burg, linebacker Mason Staggemeyer and offensive linemen Brent Robley.

Blake Henry and Drew Wyffels of Mabel-Canton are All-Area Honorable Mention selections along with nine Caledonia players.
