Hunting Hills Lightning running back Dolan Hills CAHFL City MVP

Dolan Hills wasn’t even really a running back before the high school football season started, but by the end of it, he most definitely was.

The Hunting Hills Lightning linebacker and running back was moved to the position when the team had a shortage there and produced from game one. He had 36 carries for 357 yards and three touchdowns in the regular season and rushed for two scores and over 150 yards in the city league final.

For his efforts this year, Hills was named the Central Alberta High School Football League City MVP Tuesday in Drayton Valley at the league awards.

In the rural conference, Stettler Wildcats linebacker Justin Matchett was the MVP. The Wildcats lost in the Alberta Schools Athletic Association North Regional Tier IV Final to the St. Paul Lions.

On the other side of the ball, Lindsay Thurber Raiders wideout Will Moir was the Ross MacEachern Award winner as the Most Valuable Offensive Player.

Moir had six touchdowns on the year and 308 yards receiving. The rural conference Ross MacEachern Award winner was Wetaskiwin Sabres running back Lucas Bishop. He had 70 carries for 493 yards and five touchdowns this season.

The defensive MVP for the city league was Lacombe Rams linebacker Ryker Lunn and for the rural league Ponoka’s Michael Bloomquist.

Jacob Weller of Notre Dame was the outstanding linemen in the city league and H.J. Cody Lakers’ Ardan Kasha was the winner for the rural league.

On special teams, Jared Bussiere (Ponoka) and Steele Nichols split the MOP for the rural league and Lacombe’s Richard Jans won it for the city league.
