The Wolf Point Wolves football season is over and this called for a little celebration and recognition.
The program handed out its internal awards at the season-ending banquet that honored both the high school and junior high teams.
The junior high awards kicked off the night. The top lineman was Bobby White, the top defensive player was Wesley Weeks and the top offensive player was Kenny Boos.
The most inspirational player was Brady Babb, Mr. Hustle was Stormy Knerr, most improved was Maderius Scott and the most valuable teammate was Owen Lepper.
The spotlight then shifted to the older players as they received varsity awards.
The Horizon Award went to David Knerr III, the future star award went to Hayden Hanks, the top offensive player was Mechiah Zilkoski and the top defensive player was Hunter Braaten.
The top lineman was Garrett Pronto, the most inspirational was Hunter Braaten and Mr. Hustle was Taylor Nygard.
Tyson Bridges and Dalton Hafner tied for the most improved and Tukker Toavs was declared the most valuable teammate.
After all of the traditional awards, coach David Knerr introduced a new honor.
“I preach character every day at practice and at games so this year we introduced the "Silver Wolf" award which is given to a senior who shows leadership on and off the field and carries himself with the utmost character and shows respect to all,” Knerr said.
Easton Copenhaver took home the Silver Wolf Award.
The banquet gave the team, coaches and families a chance to reflect on the season and celebrate everyone’s achievements and improvements.
