Velva may have ousted the Bowman County Bulldogs in the first round of the state playoffs, but the football team made a big impression among Region 4 coaches.

The Bulldogs completed a 3-2 record in regional play with games against both Heart River and New Salem/Almont canceled because of COVID-19 protocols.

The Bulldogs were the only regional squad to defeat Dickinson Trinity, thanks to a narrow 21-20 win in the team’s Region 4 home opener.

The coaches recently released the regional all-star teams, with the Bulldogs putting seven players on the first squad.

All-state players Caleb Duffield and Brady Senn were two of the three players to make the first team offense list. Sophomore Mace Stuber also made the first team offense list.

On first team defense, it was linebacker senior Colby Schaff joining all-state safety Clay Heimer, a junior, being recognized by the coaches.

In addition, Brody Headley (junior) and Grant Kees (sophomore) were selected for at large recognition.

Second team

Junior Carson Massey and senior Brendon Rasmussen joined junior quarterback Quaid Lardy on the second team offense.

Riggs Rotenberger was the sole Bulldog on the second team defense.

Honorable Mention

Teigen Marmon and Sam Andrews made the honorable mention all-region list.
