John Witte and Trent Kingsbury were among the state’s top high school football players to participate in the South Dakota All-Star Football game at Dakota Dome last Saturday. 

The two Blackhawks alumni played on the Blue Team, which won the game 26-7.  Witte played in the running back position and Kingsbury was a cornerback 

“Trent and John were outstanding football players for the Blackhawks.  Both of them were three-year starters and as sophomores they started in the 9AA Championship game,” said Blackhawks Football Coach Jason Kolousek. 

“As seniors they led the Blackhawks to the 11B Semi-finals and  last year Trent was named 11B All-State Quarterback and John was 11B All-State Running Back. They were also both Academic All-State performers.”
