Ethan Lindstrom’s 30 rushing touchdowns, Fa’aoso Tutu’u’s 11 sacks and Joey Strange’s five interceptions were enough to land the three on the All-Northwest League football First Team.

Lindstrom, who went 57 of 83 passing for 1578 yards and three touchdowns to go with his 1480 yards and 30 TDs on 115 carries, made First Team as a quarterback, linebacker and kicker after leading Naselle to an undefeated regular season and a trip to State eight-man football finals.

Tutu’u was a First Team defensive end and Second Team running back despite missing several weeks with an injury.

Strange had five interceptions as part of a fantastic defensive backfield that shut down regular season opponents and further proved itself in containing the dangerous Almira-Coulee-Hartline passing attack in a State semifinal victory. Strange was also a Second Team running back.

Deep threat Jason Harman was named a Second Team tight end. Daniel Holt was a Second Team linebacker. Kolten Lindstrom made the Second Team defensive line.
