Daniel Brewer is Husky grid MVP

The Husky football squad rushed for more than 250 yards per game and added 43 in the air for a 293 yard per game offensive average, fans and parents were told Tuesday during the squad’s annual dessert.

That rushing game was led by junior Levi McCubbins who gained 796 yards and seniors Adam Knight, 683 yards and Ricky Stocky, 507 yards.

The trio combined for 1,986 yards.

The Husky Yellow Jacket defense allowed opponents just 142 yards rushing and 138 passing.

Team awards were presented to:

Best Back: Adam Knight.

Most Inspirational: Ricky Stock.

Most Improved: Brad Seiber and Bobby Cartwright.

Defensive Player: Daniel Brewer.

Outstanding Lineman: Josh Starha.

Most Valuable Player: Daniel Brewer.

Brewer had an outstanding season for the Huskies, Coach Rob Younger said.

He was a unanimous first team offensive and defensive all conference player and was named the league Defensive Player of the Year.

“We had 16 seniors who showed outstanding leadership skills,” Coach Younger said. “They truly became servants to the other classes. We had lots of fun in practice and in games. They are good young men.”

The Huskies qualified for the state playoffs for the 17th time in 22 years, Coach Younger said, in great part due to the character and dedication of the squad.

“I’ve coached for 27 years and this is the first time we went 14 weeks without a single disciplinary problem,” Coach Younger said.
