2020 All-State Football Awards Announced; MSHS Breaks Through With Four Honored

2020 All-State Football Awards Announced; MSHS Breaks Through With Four Honored

Late last week, the Michigan Associated Press announced the Division 3-4 All-State football team, which is selected by a statewide panel of sports writers.  MSHS had four of its student-athletes achieve this high honor, led by First Team All-State defensive back Desmond Mullen and Second Team All-State wide receiver Kameron Karp.

Mullen, a junior, is the only Marquette area player to earn the lofty First Team All-State selection after he was also named the Defensive Player of the Year in All-Upper Peninsula balloting by the U.P. Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association.  Mullen was named to the All-U.P. “Dream Team” in two capacities, defensive back and as return specialist.

Karp, a senior, was named a Second Team All-State player at wide receiver after he matched Mullen on his side of the ball as Offensive Player of the Year in the U.P.  Karp was also an All-U.P. “Dream Team” selection at wide receiver.

Rounding out the all-state honors for MSHS were a pair of Marquette juniors, Austin Ridl (quarterback) and Chris Ricker (lineman), who both received honorable mention nods.   These accolades cap an impressive year for both student-athletes with Ridl also being named as quarterback for the All-U.P. “Dream Team” and Ricker receiving All-U.P. Honorable Mention honors.

MSHS Football Program Honored With 2020 UPSSA U.P. Football Awards

MSHS Football Program Honored With 2020 UPSSA U.P. Football Awards

Following last Thursday’s release of the All-U.P. Football Teams where MSHS had six players lauded on the All-U.P. “Dream Team”, two on the All-U.P. First Team and one receive All-U.P. Honorable Mention honors, the Upper Peninsula Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association (UPSSA) announced its major award winners from the 2020 football season over the weekend.

For the second consecutive season, Marquette was voted as the U.P.’s “Team of the Year”.  This comes off of a regular season record of 5-1 and second straight outright Great Northern Conference championship.  The team then garnered the first home playoff victory in school history when they defeated Muskegon Reeths-Puffer in the MHSAA District Quarterfinal.  MSHS then traveled to Mount Pleasant in the MHSAA District Semifinal to upset the Oilers, 21-14.  While the team fell to Muskegon in the MHSAA District Final, it was certainly a year to remember with 2020 also marking the first time in school history where a team earned multiple playoff wins in the same season.

In addition to “Team of the Year” accolades, MSHS student-athletes and coaches posted a clean sweep of the UPSSA’s major awards.  Here is the full listing of major U.P. football honors for from the UPSSA:
