Sallisaw-Poteau Area Editor’s Choice

QB – Brock Streun – Sallisaw 

With a thousand-yard total include 10 touchdowns in 2021 Streun proved he has the arm strength and quick release to keep the Black Diamonds spread offense moving down field as well as the ability to use his legs and vision to gain extra rushing yards. 

RB – Dax Collins – Poteau 

With agility and speed Collins can get through the inside gaps and then find the edge on his way to the end zone where he scored 16 times in 2021. 

WR – Trenden Collins – Muldrow 

A four-year starter, Collins is tough to defend one-on-one in pass coverage because of his speed and athleticism. Collins will create highlight reel moments running the ball as well. 

OL – Caleb Cowan – Sallisaw 

The proof is in the final results as Cowen returns to the Black Diamonds offensive front by making the most of his strength, aggressiveness and agility to anchor Sallisaw’s blocking schemes. 

DL – Luke Brooks – Poteau 

Strength is just one of the talents that forces opposing offense to design blocking schemes against Brooks who ravaged opposing quarterbacks for nine sacks in 2021. 

LB – Kix Fenton – Poteau 

A two-year starter, Fenton is a wrecking ball as the Pirates linebacker who total 7.5 tackles for loss as the leader of swarming and physical unit. 

DB – Wyatt Gamble – Poteau 

Another two-way standout, Gamble left his mark on opposing receivers with lockdown coverage as well he can race to the football to stop the running game.
