Logan Macy was a second-team selection on both sides of ball after a promising junior season.

The junior will be back next season to help lead Culver back after a down 2021 season.Culver football put five players on the All-Tri River Conference lists this season.

Despite winning just one game, there were a few notable standouts on this year's Bulldog squad. Leading that charge was Logan Macy, who received second-team accolades as both a quarterback and as a defensive back.

Macy, a junior, clearly made a strong impression on the all-league voters. This was his first season as the starting varsity quarterback, and he stepped into the role admirably.

Throughout the season, Macy displayed the ability as both a passer and a runner, though turnovers and the team's 1-7 record may have kept him from the first team. Still, this opening salvo bodes extremely well for the Culver offsense next season.

In addition to being recognized for his play under center, Macy also earned a second-team nod for his work as a safety in the defensive backfield. Joining Macy in that honor was do-it-all senior Gabe Wilson, who also played wide receiver for the Bulldogs this year — in addition to handling punting and kick return duties.

Peter Miranda, a junior lineman, also received a second-team selection for his efforts to protect Macy and open up running lanes. On a team with only two seniors — Wilson and Weston Hershburger — Miranda reliably served as one of the elder statesmen on the Bulldog roster.

Head coach Brian Silbernagel noted throughout the year that the team's offensive line was point of strength, and Miranda's efforts were a big reason why.

Rounding out the postseason awards for Culver were two honorable mentions on the defensive side of the ball. Junior linebacker Ethan Russo, who was one of the Bulldogs' strongest runners, was even better at stopping the opponents' run game. Fellow junior Max Jaimes was recognized for his own run-stuffing efforts on the defensive line. Jaimes also played on the offensive line in both the guard and center positions.

With four of the five all-conference selections slated to be back next season, the 2022 Bulldogs should have at least 11 seniors and six juniors on the team.

If some of the younger, smaller players can bulk up in the offseason and continue learning the game, Culver could quickly put this disappointing season in the rear view mirror.
