The Outlaws football squad honored their seniors prior to their game against La Pine on Friday, April 2. Senior players include Hayden Sharp, Hunter Spor, Garrett Vohs, Nate Weber, Cameron Wessel, Nathaniel Alvarez, Hudson Jones, Adam Rollins, Dillon Tucker, Collin Fischer, Camden Froehlich, and Will Grace.

Sharp is one of the Outlaws’ best athletes and a returning all-league player. Hayden excelled at running back and defensive back all season long. Hayden was also a big part of the Outlaws special teams. Spor started at both running back and linebacker. He was a hard-nosed and physical ball carrier in the Outlaws triple-option offense.

Vohs is a returning all-league safety, and contributed greatly to the Outlaws defense. Garrett was also in the rotation at wide receiver. He led by example and was always a very consistent player. Weber was a two-way starter at both corner and wide receiver. Nate’s an all-around athlete who also shines on the tennis and basketball courts.

Wessel has started for the Outlaws for multiple years, and is the best lineman in the program. Cam led the team by example and started at center and at defensive end. Wessel will be playing football at Plymouth State next fall.

Dillon Tucker, Nathaniel Alvarez, Collin Fischer, Camden Froehlich, and Will Grace all played varsity for the first time this year.

Tucker picked up the game quickly and became a two-way starter on both the offensive and defensive lines. Alvarez plays goalkeeper for the soccer team and this year decided to play football also. Nathaniel handled the Outlaws’ punting responsibilities and did some place-kicking as well.

Fischer played football for the first time this year and his athleticism, work ethic, and positive attitude gave the Outlaws depth on both sides of the ball at wide receiver and corner on defense. Froehlich was a recent transfer to SHS and played running back and free safety this year. Camden is a great athlete who fans will also see on the basketball court. Grace hadn’t played football since middle school, and was a positive force with his attitude and work ethic. Will played linebacker and running back and contributed on special teams as well.

Coach Gary Thorson said, “This is one of the best group of athletes I have got to work with in terms of character and attitude. They’re an unselfish bunch with very low egos, and it was a pleasure to coach them. I wish I could have worked with them more.”
