Hettinger/Scranton’s Kludt wins Athlete Of The Year

The 2017 All-Region 5 football team and the Western Roughrider All-Conference selections from Mott-Regent/New England and Hettinger-Scranton were announced and are listed below.  Selected for the Region 5 Senior Athlete of the Year was Hettinger-Scranton’s Isaiah Kludt.  I ran the statistics from the web site Digital Scout to check out his stats for this past season.  He rushed for 1015 yards for an 8.05 yards per carry average and 12 touchdowns.  He also caught 11 passes for 395 yards and six touchdowns along with returning four kick-offs for scores.


For The Pioneer

I talked with Isaiah’s father John, if any colleges were interested in Isaiah.  He told me every college in North Dakota except the University of North Dakota has shown interest.  In addition colleges from South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota and Kansas have contacted him.  Two Ivy League colleges sent him an invitation to workout with them but they decided not to attend.  The colleges showing the most interested are Bemidji State in Minnesota, Dickinson State, Minot State and Jamestown University.

Mr. Kludt also added that even a student/athletic from a small town in North Dakota can be noticed if they work hard enough at their specialty.
