WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - The most outstanding senior football player of the greater Wausau area is Orion Boe of D.C. Everest. Boe was named the Win Brockmeyer Award winner on Friday.
“I think it’s awesome to be part of a legacy like that,” said Boe. “It’s honestly, it’s great to be part of the community and something bigger than football. I think my toughness ability and my ability to endure through stuff. That’s a big part of my success.”
“As a newer coach, I mean this was my fourth year coming through,” said Boe’s coach Tim Strehlow. “He’s really been a part of our program from the beginning as far as the building blocks and the character stuff that we started building a few years ago. He’s been a part of it for the whole time. It’s awesome to start to see the things that we’ve been teaching and stressing over the last four years come to fruition.”
The award is given to the athlete who shows the characteristics of aggressiveness, courage, physical development and better citizenship on and off the field.
The Win Brockmeyer award started in 1996 making Boe the 25th recipient. Boe is a well-qualified candidate being named the VFA’s defensive player of the year. He was also tabbed a finalist for the John Anderson Award given to the best linebacker in the state.
Boe has not decided where he’s going to college yet, but he will receive a $1,500 scholarship.
Newman’s Dylan Ackermann, Wausau West’s Ean Marciniak and Wausau East’s Jack Ohrmundt were the other three candidates. They each will receive a $500 scholarship.
Boe becomes the sixth winner from D.C. Everest and the first since 2017 when Zach Mueller garnered the award. He is the second player to win the award under D.C. Everest’s head coach Tim Strehlow’s tutelage.
