Stettler’s varsity football team Wildcats held its wind-up banquet recognizing its best players and renewing confidence that the team will bounce back after an unfortunate season.

Head coach Norbert Baharally said at the banquet that success was not always measured by the number of wins a team had on its record.

“40 players started and 30 finished the season and in this season without a win they might have learned more about life than about football,” Baharally said, praising those who stuck with the team to the end.

“It takes special athletes to come out and continue to play when you don’t win.”

He said the team would improve next year with the experience of the players who will continue with Wildcats in the next season.

Players also received praise from other members of the coaching staff for their selfless contributions to the team effort.

Veteran Josh Meyer, the highest scoring player of the season was recognized as the Most Valuable Player and All Star.

Other All Star players were Landon Potter and jared Steinwand.

Ryan Hallett was named the most improved player, Christian Shirreff the best lineman, Matt Hataley and Tyler Volker shared the best rookie of the year award.

The most dedicated defensive player was Ricky Armstrong, and the player that contributed most with the least recognition was Cory Fisher.

Landon Potter was named the most versatile player, and most dedicated offensive player was Dustin Dayman while Jared Steinwand received recognition as the best back.

Tim Falton received the Wildcat Pride Award along with Aaron Enns.
