The Fort Morgan Times
Current and former Broncos, a star wrestler and a who’s who of Morgan County area athletes graced the stage at Saturday’s inaugural All-Star Sports Awards banquet, presented by Ehrlich Toyota Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and Buildings by Design. A crowd of about 275 jammed the Country Steak-Out in Fort Morgan for a dinner, live and silent auctions and presentation of awards to 18 athletes. The night featured a drawing for two $1,000 scholarships, with participants required to be present to win. The winners were Simon Graff and Kelsey Kalous, both of Fort Morgan. Additionally, another athlete – Thomas Mettlen – was presented a $1,000 scholarship in recognition of his perseverance. imon Graff of Fort Morgan and Kelsey Kalous of Wiggins were the winners of a drawing for $1,000 scholarships at Saturday’s All-Star Sports Awards. From left are Pat Walter and Travis Lefever of Buildings by Design, John Motschall of Ehrlich Toyota Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, Kalous and Graff, Brian Porter of the Fort Morgan Times and Brush News-Tribune and Dave Vondy of All-American Consulting. Graff was his class salutatorian, academic all-state, a two-sport letter winner and received a star student award for a 1470 SAT score. Kalous was all-conference in volleyball, team captain and academic award winners in volleyball and basketball and winner of a multi-sport award. Graff predicted a huge amount of people coming to the event in the next couple of years. “I think it’s a really great program,” Kalous declared. Event organizer Brian Porter, publisher of the Fort Morgan Times and Brush News-Tribune, said, “We want to build it from here.” He said the committee that put on the event wanted to create more scholarships through continued financial support. Mettlen battled through family medical issues and a home badly damaged by a tornado, to letter in football and wrestling and qualify for the state wrestling tournament. Dave Vondy of All-American Consulting offered thanks to sponsors, the honorees for taking time out of their schedules and audience members for coming out. Vondy’s consulting firm came up with more than 80 live auction items and numerous silent auction items; area auctioneer Craig Weichel handled the live auction. Vondy works with about 40 to 50 vendors nationwide to gather auction items. The auction was heavy on sports memorabilia, including items signed by Broncos draft pick Dalton Risner of Wiggins, who was the keynote speaker Saturday. Also featured were items signed by Bronco legend John Elway, the Cowboys’ Roger Staubach and Celtics standout Larry Bird, among others. By all measurements the first-year event was a success, Porter said, adding it allowed businesses and individuals in the community to express their appreciation for student-athletes and wish them well as they advance toward college and careers. Risner, former Broncos Joel Dreessen (a Fort Morgan product) and Chad Friehauf (a Brush graduate) and local product and world-class wrestler Cody Pfau presented awards to the honorees. Ryan Jensen, a Fort Morgan graduate who plays with the Jacksonville Jaguars following a stint with the Baltimore Ravens, was unable to attend, but his parents, Dean and Jane, were on hand. The Spring Athletes of the Year were presented to Tristan Gutierrez, a Fort Morgan soccer and Weldon Valley basketball athlete who earned all-conference honorable mention, seven letters and academic awards, and to Jade Kass of Pawnee, a state triple jump and high jump champion, and a basketball all-state honorable mention recipient. The Winter Athletes of the Year were presented to Amy Pollart of Prairie, an all-conference baseball and honorable mention all-conference basketball selection, and to Wyatt Pfau of Brush, an All-American in wrestling, state wrestling champion and a class valedictorian. The Fall Athletes of the Year were presented to Kaybree Keating of Weldon Valley, who played volleyball, was class valedictorian, and selected all-conference and all-state, and to Isaac Linker of Fort Morgan, a three-sport standout, football all-state selection, all-conference selection and state qualifier in track. Other honorees included Ireland Gaddis of Fort Morgan; Logan Goddard of Wiggins; James Hochanadel of Fort Morgan; Walter Jordan of Prairie (class salutatorian); Donovan Moya of Fort Morgan; Oswaldo Nunez of Brush; Armando Saucedo of Brush; Alexis Steinbar of Wiggins, and Bryson Wooldridge of Brush. Broncos second-round draft pick Dalton Risner of Wiggins speaks at the All-Star Sports Awards. Risner told of talking up Wiggins and Morgan County to NFL coaches and scouts and thanked Dreessen, a retired Bronco tight end who played in the Super Bowl, for his help. “He’s like a big brother to me,” he declared. Of his selection by the Broncos, Risner said, “This is going to be the greatest adventure of my life.” He cited several philosophies that have helped him: • How to treat people – when Seahawks coach Pete Carroll asked him who he should talk to about him, Risner suggested a janitor at his college, Kansas State. • Work ethic – “If you’re doing what’s asked of you, that’s not enough.” • Believing in yourself. Risner also fielded questions, which included his involvement in Special Olympics, being a Big Brother to a child with leukemia and his Risner Up Foundation. When asked by one coach about his priorities he listed his top three as faith, family and how you treat people. Asked if football was not a priority, he said it was, but not one of the top three. He drew laughter when he noted that that team did not draft him. Risner also spoke of the need to set goals. If not playing football, he said, he would want to coach or go into broadcasting. And he would like to do a camp for offensive linemen. Simon Graff, one of the honorees at the All-Star Sports Awards, shows a Broncos helmet signed by current Broncos Phillip Lindsay and Dalton Risner and former Broncos Joel Dreessen and Chad Friehauf. Hugo Flores of 360 Productions served as master of ceremonies for the evening, and In the Groove of Sterling provided music.
