Though it was upset in the opening round of the playoffs, the Maple Valley-Enderlin football team has plenty to feel good about.
The Falcons won Region 1 and got a couple of Class A all-state players out of it, too.
Senior Jordan Haselau was named first-team all-state as a defensive back and junior Dylan Claus made it on the first team as a defensive lineman, announced on Tuesday. The awards are voted on by coaches.
A few more made it in Region 1 as well, as Linton-Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock also had a pair of players. Senior linebacker Clay Jacob made it on the first team, while junior Al Gefroh was a defensive selection on the second team, where no positions were designated.
Also making it was Oakes junior Cole Ehrlin as an offensive player on the second team.
