Sports in Kansas 5A Defensive Player of the Year: Ethan Kremer, Mill Valley Jr.
Kremer was the defensive linchpin that helped Mill Valley win nine straight contests, finish 10-3 and earn the Class 5A state championship. MV permitted just 17 points per game in the Eastern Kansas League. Coach Joel Applebee said late in the season that he believed the Jaguars were carried by their defense. The defending state wrestling champion at 220 pounds, Kremer finished with 54 tackles, along with a team-high 17.5 for loss. He also led with 11.5 sacks and 11 quarterback hurries. In the 40-31 title win versus Wichita Northwest, Kremer finished with four tackles and 1.5 for loss.
Kremer has played on the offensive line throughout his career, including starting as a freshman. The 6-foot, 250-pound Kremer played guard and defensive tackle. In the last two seasons, he has accumulated 102 stops, 28 for loss, 14.5 sacks and 23 hurries. Kremer is nominated for the Buck Buchanan Award for the top big school lineman in the KC Metro area.
