Milton's Natter is Badger South's Defensive Player of the Year
A.J. Natter was a marked man this season.
The Milton High senior and University of Nebraska recruit was constantly double-teamed at his defensive end position.
The extra attention seemed to motivate Natter. The 6-foot-5, 250-pounder manhandled his opponents en route to being named the Badger South Conference Defensive Player of the Year.
Monona Grove, the Badger South champion, and Fort Atkinson dominated the first-team selections with seven players each.
Milton's Brandon Tornow, a senior defensive lineman, joined Natter on the first team.
Natter's statistics for the season were impressive. He finished with 50 tackles, six sacks and 12 tackles for losses.
Fort Atkinson's first-team selections on offense were junior running back Tyler Courtier, junior wide receiver James Nachtigal, senior wide receiver Shiloh Weber and junior lineman Ethan Foerster.
The Blackhawks were represented on the first-team defense by senior end Jordan Strasburg, senior linebacker Nick Schulenburg and senior defensive back Tanner Boos.
