Jones Trophy for a fourth straight time over rival North Penn, win the school's first-ever District IV playoff game, win a District IV Championship, and play in the school's first ever PIAA State playoff game.
"I feel honored to have been chosen as an All-State linebacker," Tremper said. "I put a lot of hard work in in the off-season as well as in practice and it is nice to be recognized for that hard work. I also want to thank my coaches and teammates as we achieved great things this year as a team. It feels great to be chosen and I couldn't be happier."
Tremper finished his career with 291 tackles, two interceptions for 45 yards, and five forced fumbles (three recovered). Not only was Tremper a defensive force to be reckoned with, but he was also an offensive threat for Wellsboro by rushing for 664 yards and accounting for 1,089 all-purpose yards.
"I am very proud of Nick. He was a leader for this team both on and off the field and a huge reason why we were so successful," said head coach Matt Hildebrand. "Nick worked very hard both in the off-season and throughout the season. Nick never left the field and would never complain. Every snap, every time you knew you were going to get 100% from Nick. As a coach Nick has been one of the most coachable kids I have had the privilege of coaching. This is a great honor for Nick and our program. Nick deserves this recognition. Myself and the rest of the coaching staff are all very proud of Nick for this honor."
