Prep football: Three Trojans named All-South Central
Worthington Trojan seniors Tyler Linder, Nathan Boneschans and Marcos Herrera were chosen for the 2017 All-South Central Red Sub-District high school football team. Two other Trojans, seniors Mason Byrne and Obang Olulo, were given honorable mentions.
Linder, a tight end/defensive end, had 21 receptions for 343 yards and three touchdowns in his senior year, and on defense he led the Trojans in sacks and fumble recoveries. Boneschans was a three-year starter at right tackle who also was a fine punter. Herrera, a linebacker, led WHS in tackles for losses in 2017 and was a solid lead blocker as a running back on offense.
All three sub-district teams were released on Tuesday. Marshall had six players named on the Red team. Maple River and Sibley East landed six players apiece on the Blue team. The White Sub-District, which includes most of the teams in The Globe coverage area, was highlighted by Pipestone Area and Redwood Valley, which had six players each on the squad.
