Four Hawks land on football All-State teams

Woodward-Granger had four gridders named to the Class 1A All-State Teams by the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association.

WOODWARD — Seniors Bryce Achenbach, Reese Jamison and Tate Lettow were joined by junior Kris Kammerer in earning All-State grid honors from the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association. The Woodward-Granger footballers helped lead their team to a 6-3 overall record and 4-1 mark in Class 1A District 7 action.

Kammerer was a Second Team selection for his role on the offensive line. The Hawks ran the ball 370 times for 2,449 yards, an average of 6.6 yards per carry. W-G scored 29 touchdowns rushing and eight more through the air while scoring 268 total points. The team had 738 aerial yards.

Lettow finished fifth in 1A with 1,437 yards on 225 hauls, total which helped secure a Third Team spot. He scored 17 points on the ground and was responsible for converting seven two-point conversions.

Also picked for the Third Team was linebacker Jamison. He led the team with 83.5 tackles, of which seven were for a loss of yardage. Jamison made two sacks and recovered a pair of opponent fumbles.

George Ashman is head coach for the Hawks.
