The Tim Krumrie Award is given annually to the state's top senior defensive lineman as part of the WSN Senior Football Awards. The award is named after Tim Krumrie, a former Mondovi and University of Wisconsin athlete who would go on to star in the NFL for 12 seasons, including two Pro Bowl appearances.
The pre-season watch list was trimmed down to 15 semi-finalists, and six finalists for the award have now been selected. Winners are announced the week of the state finals.
Sam Gromacki, Catholic Memorial - Gromacki is a bull on the inside of the defensive line for the Crusaders. Through 9 regular season games he recorded 58 tackles, 21 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, and recovered 4 fumbles against some of the best competition in the entire state. "He is one of the top two defensive linemen I have coached in 41 seasons," said veteran Catholic Memorial head coach Bill Young.
