Class 2A MVP
Aaron Austad, Manti, DL, 6-1, 235, Sr.
Dominated both sides of the line for the state champs. As a defensive end he finished with a team-high 84 tackles and six sacks. Offensively, he was probably the team's best lineman, but an injury necessitated him playing blocking tight end, and he still dominated.
