WALLA WALLA — Senior Jonah Hoe, who did a decent job of rewriting Wa-Hi’s modern day record book during the recently completed football season, has been named the Blue Devils’ most valuable offensive player.
Defensive MVP honors went to Stewart Gillin, a 203-pound junior linebacker.
Hoe, a 175-pound running back, is now Wa-Hi’s record holder for yards gained rushing in a single game (436), in a single season (1,828) and for his career (3,904). He also is the new total offense standard bearer as a running back for yards accrued during a game (441), season (2,080) and career (4,459).
And finally, Hoe set the modern day mark for the school’s longest run from scrimmage (88) and shares the record for most points scored in a game (30).
Logan Reardon, a 245-pound senior who played on both the offense and defense, was voted Wa-Hi’s lineman of the year and broke into the record book with the most quaraterback sacks (4) registered in a single game.
Hoe and Reardon were also recognized as team captains.
The senior scholar-athlete award went to Peter Sirmon, a 150-pound defensive back and wide receiver. And Jon Blanc, a 205-pound senior lineman, was the recipient of the most inspirational award and the Roy Thompson Memorial award.
