Former New Berlin Eisenhower student named football player of the year

Dec. 15, 2013

Senior middle linebacker Cole Klotz, former New Berlin Eisenhower player, was named Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year, leading a contingent of 20 Warhawks named All-WIAC.

Klotz is the seventh Warhawk in the last nine seasons to garner player of the year honors and 12th in the history of the award.

Working together as a defensive front, the Warhawks led the league in seven statistical categories including scoring defense, allowing just eight points per game, rush defense, pass defense, total defense, turnover margin, pass defense efficiency and opponent first downs allowed.

Klotz is also one of 10 finalists for the award presented by Jostens and the J-Club of Saint John's University in Minnesota — The Gagliardi Trophy.

It's been in existence since 1993, recognizes the student-athlete's excellence in athletics, academics and community service. The award is named for legendary Hall of Fame coach John Gagliardi, who retired from Saint John's in 2012 with 489 wins, the most in college football history.
