Colonels Football members placed on All District/State teams

 

 
The Missouri Football Coaches Association (MFCA) has announced the 2017 post-season awards, with several Colonels receiving honors.
 
MFCA Class 3 District 6 First Team:

Sky Thunderchild Henio, Offensive Line
 
Henio started all 10 games for the Colonels, playing either center or left guard. He allowed only one sack all season, and paced the team with five pancake blocks.
 
“Sky really served as an anchor for us on the offensive line," Head Coach Mitchell Jenkins said. "He didn’t miss a single snap all season, and I look forward to what his senior year has in store.”
 

Vernon Leach, Defensive End
 
Leach accumulated 43 tackle in just eight games, playing primarily as a defensive end, but also spending time at linebacker.
 
“Leach is a true team player," Jenkins said. "He was moved all over the defense based on need.”
 

Pedro DaRoch, Punter
 
DaRocha was among the state leaders in all classes with 45.7 yard gross punt average.
 
“Pedro has only played football for one season, and has a bright future in the game,” Jenkins said.
 
MFCA Class 3 District 6 Second Team:

Forest Drummon, Defensive End
 
Just a sophomore, Drummond had 45 tackles in eight games from his defensive end position.
 
“Forrest is a football player in every sense of the word," Jenkins said. "This is only the first of what we expect to be many honors during his career.”
 

WrayVauze Given, Defensive Back
 
Another sophomore receiving honors, and one of three Colonels to start all 10 games this season, Givens lead the team with two interceptions, as well as six passes defended.
 
“Rey is one of the hardest working kids I’ve coached in my sixteen years of coaching," Jenkins said. "He never takes a play off on the field, or a rep off in the weight room.”
 
MFCA-Academic All State:

Edward Cha, Wide Receiver
 
Cha received this honor based on his GPA (3.5) as well as a 30 on his ACT, and started eight games for the Colonels at WR.
 
“To me, this is the highest honor we give out, as it shows excellence in both the classroom and football field," Jenkins said. "Edward represents the true student athlete.”
