The News Tribune's 2013 all-area football team

First Team


Offensive lineman, 6-3, 250, sr.
The league’s two-time, two-way player of the year, Striplin was the heart and soul of the Spartans’ run to back-to-back league titles. Lead blocker for the run game, he also finished second in league in tackles (81ß tackles) at linebacker.
Thankful for in 2013: “My mother and father. They’ve been there for me since Day One, win or lose.”

Defensive lineman, 6-2, 290, sr.
How would you feel if this big Eastern Washington commit was barreling your way? Blessed with girth and quick feet, he plugged the middle of the Falcons’ defensive line (55 tackles, 7ß sacks), and was named 3A Narrows defensive player of the year.
Thankful for in 2013: “Friends and family who helped out Henry Foss Falcons football.”

Defensive lineman, 6-4, 250, jr.
In a topsy-turvy season for the Lancers, this pass rusher still performed at a high level. Despite facing numerous double-teams, the two-time all-3A SPSL defensive end (51ß tackles, three sacks) still made an impact. Top recruit for 2015.
Thankful for in 2013: “For making it through the season without any severe injuries, and for getting a chance to be looked at by colleges.”

Defensive lineman, 5-9, 200, sr.
Make no mistake, he made his biggest impact as the 3A SPSL’s leading rusher (1,237 yards, 14 TDs) as the Seahawks defended their league title. He was also used as a speed pass rusher and, despite limited action, was still second in the league in sacks (five).
Thankful for in 2013: “My family and our Christ-centered relationship. I thank God for what I’ve made so far in life.”
