Winamac's Reed is Loganland Defensive Player of Year

(Continued)

DL — Ryan Coffing, Caston

The 6-1, 230-pound junior had 41 tackles which included 13 solo tackles, 28 assists, 7.5 tackles for a loss and a fumble recovery.

He also started on the offensive line for the 3-8 Comets and helped them gain 2,799 yards of offense including 1,923 on the ground.

“He’s a solid football player, a good-sized kid that works hard in the weight room and in weight class and it shows,” Caston coach Chris Ulerick said. “He has progressively gotten better, especially since his freshman year. He’s probably the most consistent linemen we had all year long.”

DL — John Hartley, Cass

Hartley, a 6-foot, 187-pound senior defensive end, had 29 tackles, which included 28 solo tackles, a sack and 11 tackles for a loss.

“He was a first-year starter. He played mostly on the JV team as a junior,” Cass coach Scott Mannering said.

“He really came into his own this year as a senior. He was a strong defensive lineman in terms of pass rush and tackles for a loss. He was very active.”

DL — Tyler Shaw, Pioneer

The 6-1, 220-pound junior had a team-high four sacks for the Panthers this season. He had 14 solo tackles and 22 assists.

“He got an injury and when he came back he played with a vengeance,” Pioneer coach Mike Johnson said. “He’s a good-sized kid and when he got back from his knee injury he played with a big motor and got a lot of tackles up and down the line of scrimmage.”

LB — Khalil Carter, Logansport

Carter, a 6-2, 210-pound senior inside linebacker, led the Berries in tackles with 72 and tackles for a loss with nine. He had 46 solo tackles, 52 assists, 1.5 sacks and an interception.

“Khalil had a big turnaround from last year,” Logan coach Brad Urban said. “He tried to step up and be a leader for us. He made a positive move to the linebacker position. He asked if he could do that and we weren’t sure, but obviously he proved he was a legitimate linebacker on this team.”
