Triad earned its first undefeated regular season in school history, won the Ohio Heritage Conference championship and is preparing to play in the Division VII regional championship game against Marion Local on Saturday.

That success carried over to the all-district selections as the Cardinals led the area with six picks.

“Having six players selected is a true testament to how hard these boys have worked this year,” said Triad head coach Payton Printz. “These individual awards are always nice, but I can guarantee you that all of these boys would give these honors back if they were guaranteed our team would upset Marion Local on Saturday. These boys always think team first when it comes to attaining goals.”

The highest honor went to Triad senior defensive end Steven Feasel, who was named the Division VII Southwest District player of the year in addition to earning a spot on the first-team squad.

Feasel has been a dominating force all season. He leads the state in sacks according to maxpreps.com with 21 1/2. Feasel ranks third on the team in tackles with 69, has 28.5 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and has blocked two extra points.

“I am very proud of all their efforts and a special congratulations to Steven Feasel for being selected defensive player of the year,” said Printz. “He currently has 21 1/2 quarterback sacks going into Saturday’s game against Marion Local. Our quarterback sack record goes back to 2003, which was owned my Nick Hupp at 10.5 sacks. I think it is fair to say that Steven shattered the sack record.”
