The area is well represented on the wissports.net Watch List for the Joe Thomas Award which is given annually to the state’s top offensive lineman. Dodgeland’s John Appenfeldt, Waterloo’s Maximos Besl, Markesan’s Devin Brooks, Watertown’s Caden Maas and Fall River/Rio’s Gavin Wodill are all up for the award.
The list will be trimmed to 25 semifinalists halfway through the season, with five finalists chosen at the start of the playoffs. The winner will be announced the week of the state finals.
