DELPHOS — A running back from Ada and a 2-way lineman from Spencerville earned top honors at the 2012 Northwest Conference football all-conference selection meeting Monday night at Jefferson High School.
Ada senior Kellen Decker (5-11, 185) was voted Back Of The Year in the NWC and a first-team all-conference player for the third year in a row. This season, he rushed for 1,565 yards and 20 touchdowns to help lead the Bulldogs to a second-place finish in the NWC. Decker will graduate as Ada’s career rushing leader and was the only player nominated for this year’s Back of the Year award.
The NWC Lineman Of The Year is Spencerville’s Coleman McCormick. The 6-2, 260-pound senior anchored an offensive line that cleared the way for 3,374 rushing yards and an average of 40 points per game. On defense, McCormick had 55 tackles, four sacks and two fumble recoveries. He beat out Lima Central Catholic’s Ben Stolly and Ada’s Jacob Ansley for the 2012 Lineman of the Year Award.
The NWC Coach Of The Year is Jerry Cooper of LCC. Cooper led the Thunderbirds to their fifth NWC title in seven years and a perfect 10-0 regular-season record.
