Ten Timon Tigers are on the Msgr. Martin post-season football honors list released today.
Senior wide receiver Jake Blidy was named Offensive Player of the Year.
All-Catholic honors for Senior quarterback Mitchell Theal, Junior offensive linemen Luke McMahon and Todd Perkovich, and Junior wide receiver Sullivan O'Dell.
On defense, three linemen—Senior Connor Dean and Juniors Alex Reinhardt and CJ Virella were named to the All-Catholic team, as were Sophomore linebacker Malachi Charleston and Freshman defensive back Makari Inabinett.
Football Head Coach and Bishop Timon – St. Jude High School Athletic Director Joe Licata said the team and the program grew this year. He says it was a special connection between the top offensive player in the division and the division’s top quarterback.
“We were able to do a lot of things offensively because of how smart Mitchell Theal is. And then, with Jake Blidy on the outside, those guys were special this year,” says Licata.
He says even though those guys will be gone next year, this season is one to build from.
“Next year we’ll keep growing. We return four of five starting offensive linemen next year, two of them are All-Catholic,” says Licata.
