Following Harlan’s fourth quarter comeback victory at the state championship game Saturday, Hawkeye 10 released its all-district teams.
The Panthers placed one player on the Iowa All-State Second Team, three players on the District 3A First Team, seven on the District 3A Second Team and four on honorable mention.
First Team Panthers
Junior running back Brennan Hayes is the sole offensive player from Creston on first team, and he was named unanimously. This season Hayes logged 1,338 yards and 11 touchdowns on 184 carries.
In the Panthers’ Sept. 23 homecoming 39-0 victory against Knoxville, Hayes rushed for 433 yards and two touchdowns - setting a new school record for yards in a single game and landing 11th all-time in Iowa 11-man football history.
Hayes also made the Iowa All-State Second Team with his rushing performance.
Senior defensive back Gannon Greenwalt was also unanimously named to the first team defense. Greenwalt led the Panthers in total and solo tackles, accumulating 54.5 and 35, respectively.
Junior Austin Evans (defensive-at-large) comes in just behind Greenwalt with 46.5 total tackles and 26 solo tackles. Evans was also named to the first team defense. Evans was a menace in the backfield with eight tackles for loss and a team-high five sacks.
Second Team Panthers
The All-District Second Team offense is loaded with Panthers. Senior Kyle Strider takes the helm at quarterback after completing 118 passes for 1,766 yards and 14 touchdowns.
The junior duo of Cael Turner and Dylan Calvin at receiver/tight end made the team together. Turner had 532 yards and four touchdowns while Calvin had 363 yards and a touchdown.
The second-team offense is rounded out by junior Quinten Fuller at lineman.
Junior defensive lineman Max Chapman made the second team defense after his season with 21 solo tackles and team-high 8.5 tackles for loss.
