Challengers' Schaan earns FWL's top honors

Cascade Christian junior Kiegan Schaan swept the top individual awards on both sides of the ball and the league champion Challengers dominated voting overall as the Far West League all-star football team was announced recently.

Schaan, Cascade Christian’s quarterback and safety, was named the FWL’s offense and defensive player of the year, sharing the DPOY award with Brookings-Harbor linebacker Brig Schofield.

Cascade Christian senior center Logan Flenner won the league’s offensive lineman of the year award and St. Mary’s junior end Trevahn Foster was voted the defensive lineman of the year.

Overall, Cascade Christian, which won another league title while upping its league winning streak to 40 games, led the FWL with a total of 11 first-team selections: five first-team picks on offense, four on defense and two spots by the same player — punter/kicker Ethan Hoffman — on special teams.

Runner-up St. Mary’s had five first-team selections on offense and three on defense.

The defending state champion Challengers (10-1), who face Amity in the Class 3A state semifinals Saturday, also had six second-team picks.

Schaan has completed 58 percent of his passes (133-for-228) for 2,059 yards and 26 touchdowns, and had rushed for 575 yards and 14 touchdowns heading into Saturday’s playoff win over Scio.

Luke Smith, the Challengers’ first-team running back, has rushed for 859 yards and 13 touchdowns, and first-team receiver John Fralich had 39 catches for 722 yards and eight touchdown receptions heading into the Scio game.
