Six members of the Big Foot football team recently were voted to All-Rock Valley Conference teams.

Leading the way for the Chiefs were seniors Pedro Sierra and Jackson Enz, who were named to the first team as a receiver and an “athlete,” respectively.

Enz, the conference’s Back of the Year, also was a first-team pick as a defensive back and a second-team selection as a punter.

In just six games, Enz, who suffered a season-ending knee injury, completed 87-of-150 passes for 11 touchdowns and 1,120 yards. He also rushed 90 times for 609 yards and 11 touchdowns.

As a defensive player, Enz had 60 total tackles, an interception and two forced fumbles.

Sierra finished with 42 receptions for 639 yards and eight touchdowns.

Named to the second team was junior defensive end Jack Hereley, while honorable mention picks were junior Aidan Greco and seniors Danny Carpenter and Tucker Milligan.

Hereley had 61 total tackles, good for second on the team. He also returned a fumble for a touchdown. Greco caught 47 passes for 614 yards and four touchdowns.

Big Foot was 3-6 overall in 2017.
