McDown who was once a state wrestling champion also racked up over 120 tackles on defense in 2015. He was a four-year starter for the Titans. 

Defensive Player of the Year

Will Mengarelli, Pittsburg LB

Mengarelli was a two-time all-state selection at linebacker for the Dragons and is one of the best linebackers in all of Kansas. The 5A state powerlifting champion had over 100 tackles in each of his last two seasons. Mengarelli was the leader of a Dragon defense that posted four shutouts and held opponents to 14 or under points in nine contests.
