SteidlKrivanekReveringHelgesonBowdenSteidl was almost impossible to keep off the field this season with his ability to block and catch on offense and his ability to disrupt things on defense. He finished with five catches for 33 yards this season with two of those going for touchdowns. He also had 39 tackles and two fumble recoveries on defense.

Steidl was one of four Alexandria players named All-Central Lakes Conference this year. Senior quarterback John Vogeler, along with seniors David Krivanek (WR/FS) and Parker Bowden (WR/FS) also received that honor. Riley Hvezda (WR/FS), Mitch Peck (RB/CB), Joe Gorghuber (WR/FS), Mitch Maday (OL/DE) and Parker Revering (WR/LB) were honorable-mention selections.

Krivanek was named the team’s most valuable offensive back this season. He was Vogeler’s favorite target, catching a team-high 31 balls for 419 yards and three touchdowns.

Revering was named the team’s most valuable defensive back. The junior linebacker had 34 solo and 55 assisted tackles. He also recovered three fumbles for the Cardinals.

Bowden was named Alexandria’s special teams most valuable player. He had 21 kick returns for a total of 603 yards and a 28.7 average.

Sophomore Samuel Helgeson (WR/CB) rounded out the team-voted award winners. He took home the Most Improved Player Award after making an impact as a young player for the Cardinals this year. Helgeson finished with 15 solo and 18 assisted tackles. He also broke up three passes in the secondary.

Along with their play on the field, the Cardinals also had four players named CLC Scholar Athletes in Peck, Landon Anderson, Hvezda and Steidl. Steidl was also an All-Section 8AAAAA player, while Krivanek earned honorable-mention all-section status.

The new team captains for the 2014 season were named at the banquet with Gorghuber, Grant Hockert and Revering earning that honor.

The Cardinals wrapped up the 2013 season with a 2-7 record overall.
