I take a look at the five best players on offense from the game between the Eden Valley-Watkins Eagles and the Paynesville Bulldogs.
Josh Streit, Wide Receiver, Eden Valley-Watkins (2021)
-I don’t think there is a bigger target than Streit that I have seen at the wide receiver position this year in the 20 teams I’ve seen. Streit had multiple catches from his QB Luke Jansen and was a key target for the Eagles offense. Congrats to Streit for being on the big dog list. I hope to see him on this list next year as he’s only a junior.
Drew Tangen, Running Back, Paynesville (2021)
-As a backup running back under Daltin Christinsen, I thought Tangen had the better game in this one. He had some solid runs that were beneficial to the Bulldogs running game against Eden Valley-Watkins. Tangen will be the main man at running back this year Christinsen graduated.
Luke Jansen, Quarterback, Eden Valley-Watkins (2020)
Congratulations to Jansen for being the only 2-timer on the Nate’s Big Dogs of the Week offensive list this year. Jansen had multiple key touchdowns to make this Eagles team much closer with Paynesville than I had anticipated. Jansen will be a tough QB1 to replace for the Eagles as he was a great ball thrower in Class AA.
Levi Bast, Wide Receiver, Paynesville (2020)
-Fuchs’s main target all night was Bast as he had over 100 yards receiving for the Bulldogs offense and a touchdown. He gets my nod for the wide receiver of the game overall in this game between the Eagles and the Bulldogs.
Grady Fuchs, Quarterback, Paynesville (2020)- Nate’s Big Dog of the Week Offensively
-This choice was a no brainer for Nate’s Big Dog of the Week award on offense. Fuchs was a playmaker the entire game whether it was in the running game or the passing game as he was in charge of all four Bulldogs touchdowns. Congratulations to Grady Fuchs and his Paynesville Bulldogs for their return to the state tournament.
