Punxsy's Luke Shiock has been named the 2014 KSAC Large All-Conference Lineman of the Year. The honor for Shiock comes after a successful season by the Chucks and comes at a position where it can be hard to recognize a player's strengths.
Punxsy Head Coach Alan Nichol said that lots of teams the Chucks faced this year had to implement game plans to work around Shiock, which speaks to his strength, both offensively and defensively.
Punxsy filled 11 spots on the first-team All-Conference list, as well.
