Six Huskies named all-stars
LEWISTOWN — Six Mifflin County football players made the cut as all-stars for the Huskies’ first year in the Mid-Penn Colonial Division.
Senior Isaac Maclay made both the offensive and defensive first team at tight end and linebacker, respectively
Maclay played just about everywhere on offense in his four years with the program. From quarterback to fullback to tight end — the 6-1, 205-pounder made the switch to tight end mid-season — along with the Husky running game, Maclay thrived.
Maclay capped his season with 30 receptions for 359 yards and three touchdowns with 72 yards and three scores on the ground. From his linebacker spot, he led the team in tackles for the second year in a row with 126 stops, 2.5 for a loss.
“Isaac Maclay, in my opinion, is the best all around player in the Mid-Penn Colonial. No question about it,” Mifflin County coach Brent Hartman said.
Other first team members are senior Cole Middaugh (defensive line) and junior Aaron Wagner (defensive back). Middaugh bounced back with a stellar season after missing all of 2015 with an injury. He finished with 64 tackles, three for a loss. Wagner led the team with four interceptions to go along with 67 tackles.
“Cole Middaugh had a very good year at defensive tackle. He was playing as a junior due to missing his real junior year with a foot injury,” Hartman said. “Aaron Wagner had a great year at corner, but was again only playing as a sophomore due to playing soccer last year.”
Senior center Logan Peachey and lineman Jacob Yoder are on the second team offense, while senior Seth Miller was a second team defensive tackle selection. Miller, who moved here from Texas, finished the season with 57 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and two sacks.
“Seth Miller had a good year at defensive tackle. It took him a while getting on to our system, just moving from Texas. Logan Peachey is our best overall O-linemen for the past two years, despite being under sized,” Hartman said. “Jake Yoder is one of the two biggest linemen on our team and the most improved this year. He is being looked at by a lot of big colleges.”
The Huskies were 3-7 on the season and 3-4 in their first year in the Colonial. League champion Shippensburg swept the Coach of the Year (Eric Foust), Offensive Player of the Year (Cody Gustafson) and Defensive Player of the Year (Cameron Tinner) awards.
