EBEN - Fresh off receiving All-Upper Peninsula mention on Saturday, senior Dan Steward of Superior Central earned a player of the year honor Monday from the Bridge Alliance Conference in its eight-player football league.

Steward (6-foot-3, 175 pounds) was named BAC Special Teams Player of the Year in voting by the league's coaches.

He was also named a Bridge Alliance first-team wide receiver after receiving a similar honor among UPSSA Small Schools - Division 8 and eight-player - in All-U.P. balloting.

Steward was joined by senior Bryce Richard (6-4, 185) as a first teamer at wide receiver by the league, which includes nine schools in the Upper Peninsula and northern Lower Peninsula.

Two more Cougars seniors also earned Bridge Alliance first-team honors - Trevor Maki (6-0, 185) at quarterback and Tyler Kienitz (6-0, 166) at linebacker.

Other SC players awarded mention were senior Colton Gauthier (5-8, 145) to the second team at defensive back and senior Britton Tyner (5-11, 185) as an honorable mention at linebacker.

Undefeated league champion Cedarville (8-0) captured two of the league's other three major awards, with the other going to Rapid River, which tied Superior Central for second place at 6-2.

The Trojans were named BAC Team of the Year and Cedarville's Kaden Barbeaux earned BAC Offensive Player of the Year honors.

From Rapid River, Jake Pearson was named BAC Defensive Player of the Year.
