If you’re looking for an all-around MVP for the Custer High School football team this year, look no further than Kenneth Myers.
The senior running back/defensive back did it all for Custer, racking up 1,590 all-purpose yards this season, leading the team in rushing with 913 yards, punt returns with 265 yards and kickoff returns with 243 yards. Myers was the team’s leading scorer with 13 touchdowns, and was fourth on the team with 57 total tackles.
Myers also caught seven passes for 169 yards, averaged 6.3 yards per carry, 29.4 yards per punt return, 24.3 yards per kick return and had the Wildcats’ longest play from scrimmage this year when he took a screen pass from Chase Glazier and raced 86 yards for the game-winning touchdown over Newcastle, Wyo., in the team’s season-opening game.
Glazier threw for 1,457 yards in his final season as Custer’s quarterback, completing 57 percent of his passes for 15 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
Clayton Wahlstrom proved to be Glazier’s most targeted teammate, as the senior fullback had 37 receptions on the season for 421 yards. Wahlstrom also rushed for 198 yards and scored eight total touchdowns while scoring three two-point conversions. He was also third on the team in tackles, with 68.
