The Baldwin-Woodville football team ended its 2020 season with a win over Altoona Nov. 12.
The Blackhawks finished its season with a 4-4 record and will be saying goodbye to 11 seniors.
“The seniors were an awesome group to coach,” said B-W coach Dan Keefer. “They showed resilience and grit and won a lot of games over the past two years. I appreciate their leadership. This group is very tight and they had fun playing together. They earned respect from many and I am proud of them.”
Keefer offered his thoughts on the 11 seniors:
Taylor Lokker – Was a two-year starter for us on the offensive and defensive line. Taylor was one of our captains and had an outstanding career. Taylor was selected All-MBC as both an offensive and defensive lineman this year. He loves football and was great teammate. He gave it everything he had every single day!
Carson Lee – Had a tremendous offseason and is one of the most improved kids in our program. His confidence and maturity improved immensely. Carson averaged just less than 12 yards/carry this year and scored four touchdowns. Carson also started on defense and his speed was an asset. Carson plays all-out! He was an important part of this team.
Carson Lunde – Team first guy. He moved to the offensive line this year and played very well. Carson started at defensive end for us all year and was a very effective defender. Emotional leader on our team. Very coachable. He had an awesome senior year.
Brady Gordon – Brady enjoyed being part of our team. He embraced his role and provided depth for us at offensive guard and defensive end. Brady grew as a leader becoming more vocal this year.
Tanner Holldorf – He worked as hard as anyone I have seen to prepare for this season. He has a great work ethic and his speed was obvious this year, he averaged just less than 25 yards/catch. Tanner was selected All-MBC at wide receiver and defensive back. He led our team with four interceptions. He also led in receptions with 13 and touchdowns with four. Tanner is planning to play football next year at UW Oshkosh.
Peyton Mentink – Peyton provided depth especially on the defensive line. A smart and mobile defensive lineman, he was very important in his role on the scout team. We counted on him to compete every day and when he played in games he was effective.
Grady McAbee – Grady played significant snaps for us early this year on both the offensive and defensive line. Grady had his season cut short due to an injury he sustained in a car accident. He was always there supporting his teammates. He has a great attitude.
Isaiah Randall – Isaiah is an extremely talented running back that is always a team first guy. We missed him a ton this season when he was out with an injury. His vision and patience running the ball is amazing. He has a bright future and his best football is in front of him. He led our team in rushing with 428 yards and averaged just less than 8 yards/carry. Isaiah was a captain and is a leader in our school.
Ethan Rumpel – Ethan has improved a ton in his four years in our program. Ethan was a two-way starter most of this year. A smart player that made the most of his opportunities. A great student and role model. Ethan had a terrific senior year.
Ty Margelofsky – Ty plays the game as hard as anyone I have coached. A smart and very tough player. Ty did it all Friday nights. Starter at cornerback and running back, he was terrific running the jet sweep and a threat in the passing game. Ty returned kicks all year and always gave the team everything he had. All- MBC honorable mention at defensive back. His love of football was obvious.
Sam Crowley – It was a joy to coach Sam. He is as tough as anyone I have ever coached. He was our heart and soul this year. He was a great problem solver at Center and linebacker. A strong communicator and coach on the field. Courageous leader! Had 49 tackles this year and two forced fumbles. All-MBC at outside linebacker and offensive line He plays the game the way it should be played, he brought it every day!
