PHS’s Schweiger, Falk named All-State HM

GAVIN FALK GAVIN FALK Seniors Derek Schweiger and Gavin Falk of Plymouth were named Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-State Honorable Mention for the 2016 season.

Schweiger was selected at the defensive end position and Falk at defensive back. Schweiger was voted the East Central Conference’s Offensive and Defensive Lineman of the Year and the Defensive Player of the Year last season by the ECC coaches.

Schweiger, 6-feet-4, 270 pounds, was an All-ECC unanimous first-team offensive lineman and first-team defensive end. He signed a national letter of intent last week to play football at Iowa State University.

He recorded 59 total tackles (28 solos and 31 assisted) for the season. Schweiger had 12 tackles for losses and three quarterback sacks.

Falk, 6-3, 170, was voted the ECC’s Co-Defensive Back of the Year. He led the league in interceptions with seven in ECC action and had a school-record 11 for the overall season. Falk made 48 total tackles (37 solos and 11 assisted), had two tackles for losses and returned one interception for a touchdown.

DEREK SCHWEIGER DEREK SCHWEIGER “Derek had a great season on both sides of the line. He is a dominant player that really played well this season. Derek has great athleticism for his size,” said PHS head coach Dan Knaus.

“Gavin really had a knack for the ball and was one of the better true free safeties I’ve coached.”

Schweiger, Falk and PHS senior Erik Ohman were named to the WFCA All-Northeast Region Team. Schweiger was honored as a defensive end and offensive lineman, Ohman at inside linebacker and Falk at defensive back.

Ohman was named the ECC’s Co-Inside Linebacker of the Year and was on the all-league firstteam defense at that position.

Ohman made 78 total tackles (39 solos and 39 assisted), had seven tackles for losses, one sack and one interception this past season.

“Erik plays with great instinct and toughness. A bit undersized at inside linebacker but overcame that with his other strengths,” Knaus pointed out.

Senior quarterback Josh Weiss and senior wide receiver Reid Hilbelink of Cedar Grove-Belgium were voted to the all-state firstteam offense. Senior tight end/fullback Austin Goehring of Kiel was named to the first-team offense.

Senior defensive back Beau Goudreau of Sheboygan Falls and junior running back Tadeo Maier of Oostburg earned all-state honorable mention.
