With success comes honors and with another successful season for Trinity Classical Academy comes some significant honors.

The CIF-Southern Section released its All-Division II 8-man team and do-all senior Dakota Prochnow was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player.

That award is right below the Division II Player of the Year, which went to two-way player Joseph Leichtner of Joshua Springs.

Three of Prochnow’s teammates made All-CIF, with junior Spencer Klehn being named to the Offensive Team and juniors Patch Kulp and Eli Skorich being named to the Defensive Team.

Trinity finished the season at 9-3, claiming its first Heritage League championship and reaching its second consecutive Division II semifinal game.

The Knights lost to eventual division champion Joshua Springs 46-28 on Nov. 16.

Yet Trinity was a force all season in 8-man football, thanks in large part to Prochnow.

The gutsy quarterback passed for 1,427 yards, tossing 25 touchdowns to seven interceptions and rushed for 825 yards on 116 carries with 18 more scores on the ground. On top of that, he caught six passes for 205 yards with three touchdowns.

The 46 total touchdowns are the most by a Santa Clarita Valley 8-man football player, breaking Collin Keoshian’s mark of 45 for Santa Clarita Christian in 2008,

Prochnow was also a weapon on special teams, returning kicks and punts, and he was a force on defense with a team-leading nine interceptions.

He was arguably the best player in the division.

Last year, Prochnow was the school’s athlete of the year and also was named All-CIF Southern Section Division VII in baseball.

Klehn was Prochnow’s main target in the offense in 2012.

He caught 55 passes for 737 yards with 13 touchdowns and added 245 rushing yards with five more scores.

He was also a defensive standout with 136 tackles.

That defense, which was self-proclaimed the “Wolf pack” for its defensive mentality, was led in tackles by Kulp, who had 141.

Kulp also added 1 1/2 sacks, an interception, three fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.

Skorich had 92 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks, a fumble recovery and one forced fumble.
