Please grant me, as a blogger, a little bit of crowing. I am bursting with pride today. My heart is filled with joy. Eight Ole football players, including my son Seamus Walsh, were recognized by the MIAC on Tuesday, Nov. 25.
Here they are:
Colin Brown, senior, defensive lineman, All-MIAC First Team Defense.
Colton Yahn, sophomore, linebacker, and Coleman Foley, sophomore, defensive back, All-MIAC Second Team Defense.
Nate Penz, junior, quarterback; Joel Reinhardt, senior, wide receiver; J.J. Strnad, junior, running back and Chad Wagner, senior, defensive lineman, All-MIAC Honorable Mention.
Seamus Walsh, junior, defensive back, All-MIAC Sportsmanship Team.
I am so proud of these young men... so filled with emotion for the year my son had in his first season as a college starting safety. So happy that his teammates were honored, even in a difficult season in wins and losses.
As terrific as these boys are as players, they are even better examples of humanity. Congratulations, Oles!
