Waldorf’s Football season officially came to an end on November 3. With a total record of 5-5, 5-2 in conference play, the Warriors finished second in the North Star Athletic Association Conference (NSAA), behind only Dickinson State.

“It was pleasing to see us get second in the conference,” said Denny Jerome, Head Athletic Director. “Knowing that we had a really tough schedule, it was really impressive to see us come back from an 0-3 start and win five out of the last seven games. To me it really shows the character and determination of these football players and the coaching staff.”

Waldorf’s only Conference losses coming from Valley City State and Presentation, both of which were single possession losses.

A total of 13 Waldorf Football players got NSAA awards, and head coach Josh Littrell was honored as the NSAA Coach of the Year.

Waldorf also had the NSAA Offensive MVP, Hilton “Bo” Joseph. He set Waldorf’s new single-season passing record at 170 completions in 291 passing attempts, and threw for a record 2,392 yards and a school-record 27 touchdowns.

Joseph also was named the All-NSAA First Team quarterback; Joseph was one of four Waldorf players to be on the league’s offensive first team. The other three players that earned First Team honors were wide receiver Don Jones, offensive lineman Robert Mosley, and running back Bo Evans.

Earning Second Team honors was wide receiver Ryan Martinez, defensive lineman Devin Quinn, and defensive backs James Jackson Jr, Cameron Newsome and MaCoy Yeakel.

Four Warriors also earned All-NSAA Honorable Mentions: wide receiver Samuel Huntley, kicker Slater Gifford, defensive lineman DeShaun Quinn and offensive lineman Zach Throne.

The Warriors also lead the conference in total offensive yards per game (489.5) and rushing yards per game (213.6).
