Posen’s Hincka, Kaszubowski earn MVP honors from MWC
After standout seasons on both sides of the ball, Posen’s Tyler Hincka and Gage Kasubowski earned top honors in the eastern division of the Midwest Central Eight Man Conference.
Hincka, a senior running back, ran all over opposing defenses this season to the tune of 2,009 rushing yards and 25 touchdowns during the regular season, good enough to set a new single-season record for the Vikings and good enough to be named Offensive MVP of the eastern division.
Kaszubowski, a junior lineman, was named Defensive MVP after a standout season. As one of the main cogs in Posen’s defense, Kaszubowski recorded 65 total tackles with four sacks and three fumble recoveries.
Hincka and Kaszubowski were just two of several local athletes who earned all-conference honors for their play during the 2019 season. The complete teams are as follows:
