For the bantams, the award winners were: Eric Clarke (MVP), Jack Simard (rookie of the year), Ty Borys (heart, defensive star), Beau Rector-Hunink (best defensive lineman), Jakob Klinec (offensive star), Boston LeJan (best offensive lineman), Ethan Albas (best receiver), Kayson Harrison (best running back), Lander Hurst (best defensive back), Jaxon Prince (most improved) and Kaydon Harrison (team spirit).

No formal awards were handed out to the senior team, but players were recognized with certificates and footballs for their memorable efforts.

“If you’re on a football team, you really should have a football,” said head coach Adam Schoening, who doubles as the club’s vice-president.

One of the highlights of the evening was a presentation of flowers to the club’s current president, Faith Zachar, for her continued support of the football program in Pincher Creek. Faith has been involved since the Mustangs’ inception back in 1995.
