MVP Kalil Pimpleton 5-7 165 Sr QB Muskegon: A magician with the ball whether running and throwing it as a QB, or lining up in the slot with La’darius Jefferson as the Big Reds’ QB and Pimpleton making ’em miss in the open field, or returning punts. He ran for over 1,500 yards and 25 TDs and threw for over 800 yards and 15 TDs. He also had three TD catches and two TD returns. Pimpleton will play for Virginia Tech.
QB Zac Saltzgaber 6-0 190 Sr Byron Center: Quarterback of the the O-K Green champions. In the regular season he threw for 1,128 yards and 11 TDs and ran for 1,009 yards and 21 TDs. Then in a D3 district final he ran for five and threw for two TDs.
OL Phillip Paea 6-4 300 Sr Berrien Springs: Big-time size/speed talent (committed to U-M) who beat up on small school athletes, until the Shamrocks ran into West Catholic in the D5 playoffs. Also a started on defense, where Paea had three sacks.
OL Anthony Bradford 6-5 320 So Muskegon: Fast-tracked at right tackle and looked like a Power 5 prospect as the Big Reds reached the D3 state final.
OL Matt Kelly 5-11 220 Jr Grandville: Athletic quick hitter that thrived in Grandville’s wing T, an offense which topped 40 points seven times for the O-K Red champions.
OL Ben Sherwin 6-5 260 Sr Traverse City Central: Impacted the line both ways with his athleticism and wingspans. Left tackle for Big North champion Trojans.
OL Jalen Mayfield 6-5 245 Jr Grand Rapids Catholic Central: He pressured QBs all fall for D4 state champion Catholic Central — and with his square frame and quick feet, may be an even better recruit at offensive tackle. Mayfield had a dozen sacks and 14 tackles behind the line during the regular season.
TE Nate Umlor 6-5 260 Sr Allendale: A four-year starter who has committed to WMU, Umlor had six TD catches. He also played on Allendale’s D line where he had 70 tackles including six sacks.
RB Joe Brown 5-11 205 Sr Portage Northern: An 1980s style workhorse back who rushed for 1,373 yards and 20 TDs with another score receiving.
RB Jeremy Burrell 5-9 180 Sr Benton Harbor: He led the Tigers’ ground game through an undefeated regular season rushing for 1,646 yards and 22 TDs.
WR Brayden Smith 6-5 180 Sr Byron Center: WMU commitment who went both ways for O-K Green champion Byron Center. Smith caught 32 balls for 641 yards and 10 TDs. He made two interceptions on defense.
WR Drew Couturier 5-9 155 Sr Allendale: A repeat selection, Couturier didn’t have the total yardage of his junior season but was still a frequent visitor to the end zone with 14 TDs, including 11 on 60 catches for 825 yards.
This is the seventh of eight LMFR post-season honor teams, which include by school division, underclassman team, class of 2018 team and the overall All-Lake Area Offense.
MVP Andrew Ward 6-1 210 Sr LB Muskegon: The leading tackler on the most talented Big Reds team of coach Shane Fairfield’s tenure, the O-K Black champions and D3 state finalists. Ward had over 100 tackles. He’s the Lake Area’s top uncommitted senior, with offers from the likes of Nebraska, Penn State, Washington State, Arizona, Virginia Tech and WMU.
DL Ian Hall 6-1 230 Sr Grandville: Three-year starter and two-way technician on the line. He made the hits count, as of his 50 tackles Hall had 14 sacks and 16 more behind the line.
DL Corey Malone-Hatcher 6-3 245 Sr St. Joseph: Michigan commitment led the Bears topping 100 tackles, 20 of them for a loss.
DL Derek Spann Muskegon 6-2 210 Sr Muskegon: He had 50 tackles, including six sacks, for the D3 state finalist Big Reds.
LB Dalton Agers 5-11 195 Sr Hudsonville: This was the third season that Agers was the Eagles’ leading tackler. On the other side he ran for 10 TDs.
LB Sal Sidebotham 5-9 190 Sr Forest Hills Central: Three-year starter who led the Rangers in tackles, tackles for loss and interceptions.
LB Nate Stephens 6-0 195 Sr Lowell: There were some uncertainties for Lowell going into the year, but Stephens was one of the vets who helped them to an undefeated regular season and appearance in the D2 semifinals. He had a team-high 72 tackles with 5 1/2 sacks, while also leading the Red Arrows in rushing.
DB David Fox 6-1 210 Sr Grand Rapids West Catholic: Do-it-all athlete who started the season at quarterback, and ended it as a safety and running back for the Falcon’s fourth-straight D5 state champion. He was West Catholic’s leading tackler.
DB Mike Brown 6-0 200 Sr Grand Rapids Catholic Central: He led the D4 state champion Cougars, and the Lake Area’s top defensive backfield, with eight interceptions, to go with 83 tackles. He also had 19 total TDs as a receiver, runner and kick returner.
DB Jack Mandryk 6-2 185 Sr Hudsonville: Maybe the most athletic player in the O-K Red (Mandryk was also the LMFR’s D1-2 offensive MVP), he led the Eagles with four interceptions while at QB he had over 2,000 yards and 21 TDs from scrimmage.
DB Blake Dunn 6-0 180 Sr Saugatuck: One of the most accomplished all-around, four-sport athletes in state history. He had 64 tackles and seven interceptions in the regular season. Dunn played a little QB too rushing for nearly 2,00 yards and 34 TDs and throwing for a dozen more scores.
DB Matt Ellis 5-11 190 Sr Grand Rapids Christian: He led the Eagles with 108 tackles. Ellis did it offensively as well, with 1,352 yars and 17 TDs rushing or catching from his running back spot.
