A historic league season for Winlock is over, and as the Cardinals look to take their season as far as they can, they have some postseason honors already to celebrate.
Senior tailback/linebacker Nolan Swofford was named the offensive MVP after piling up insane numbers on a weekly basis, and was also a first-team linebacker. Leading the reins for that offense and defense, Cards coach Ernie Samples earned Co-Coach of the Year honors, as well.
All in all, Winlock finished with seven first-team selections, three second-team, and two honorable mention nods. Mossyrock, finishing just one win shy of state, had seven first-teamers, two second-teamers, and two players earn honorable mention. After a spring season hiatus, the Oakville football team came back and did some good things, garnering one first-team pick in linebacker Derek Ruymann, one second-team pick, and two honorable mention honors.
