Statesman Names LCHS’ Hout Top 5A Player

Complete story here

Byron Hout doesn’t run with the football. He doesn’t throw it or catch it, either. And Hout, 17, is not a senior heading to some high-profile college program. Yet. So why did the Lake City offensive and defensive lineman garner this year’s 5A All-Idaho Player of the Year award? “He is definitely the best football player in the state,” said Lake City coach Van Troxel, who guided the Timberwolves to a 12-0 record and 5A state championship. “Byron is the most dominant player that I have ever coached. … No one player has a bigger impact on the game the (way) Byron does.” And Hout still has another year of high school left — Tom Fox/Idaho Statesman.
