The Iola defense was able to tout stars on every level of the unit this season and those stars were rewarded with All-State honors from Kansas’ two largest newspapers.
Senior linebacker Chase Regehr was a 4A-II honorable mention selection for both the Topeka Capital-Journal and Wichita Eagle.
Regehr led the Mustang defense in tackles for the second-consecutive season and was the signal caller for coach Doug Kerr’s defense.
While Regehr racked up the tackles, senior defensive tackle Trea Williams was responsible for doing the dirty work for the Iola defense.
He helped the Mustangs control the line of scrimmage all season and his efforts earned him a spot on the Topeka Capital-Journal’s All-State honorable mention list.
With Williams and Regehr focused on the line of scrimmage and the opponent’s backfield, they knew they could trust senior Joey Zimmerman to have their backs’ from his free safety spot.
Zimmerman patrolled the middle of the for the Iola defense and had a two-interception game against Prairie View in Week Two to help get the Mustangs’ season on track and propel them to their first playoff berth since 2008.
His exploits earned him a spot among the Wichita Eagle’s All-State honorable mention selections.

HUMBOLDT
Humboldt sophomore linebacker Dagen Goodner has been a standout ever since he first suited up for the Cubs last season as a freshman, but during his sophomore campaign he took his game to another level.
Goodner’s 112 tackles were a major reason why the Cubs were able to advance to the playoffs this season with an extremely young core of players to lean on.
This earned him a spot on the Wichita Eagle’s 3A All-State honorable mention list.
Goodner finished the season with 10 tackles for loss.

YATES CENTER
Yates Center senior safety Mikey Bruner was named to the Class 2-1A honorable mention selections for the Wichita Eagle.
