Corsica/Stickney's Cordel Menning is going to be a load as Jaguars move up to 9A ranks

Corsica-Stickney's Cordel Menning is going to be a load as Jaguars move to 9A ranks
Aug 10, 2017

By Rich Winter

Ya know, it's not often you get a 6-foot-4, 245 kid that can run playing in the 9B ranks of South Dakota football. Well, 9B can breathe a sigh of relief as the Jaguars of Corsica-Stickney have fled the 9B ranks for the greener pastures of 9A football. And while 9B football is probably thankful that Cordel Menning won't be terrorizing opposing 9B RB's and QB's, 9A better strap it on because this Jaguar is gonna be a load. 


One of two juniors on last years 9B all-state team, Menning had an impressive junior campaign. 


Cordel Menning - 9B all-state 2016 - A strong pass rusher at 6-foot-4, 245 pounds, the Jaguars’ junior proved he can cause havoc in the middle of the defense. He finished the season with 42 tackles, six sacks and an interception return for a touchdown.


Kinda followed the Corsica-Stickney kids out of my left eye a year ago. That season opening win over Colome was impressive, but, as it turned out it was a tough year for the Jaguars who lost in the 9B semis only to see Colome go on to win the 9B state title. 


A couple of huge graduation losses for these Jaguars to replace with running back Clayton Menning and guard Reed Baan Hofman, both of whom made the 9B All-State team. 


The Corsica-Stickney offense might not be as explosive as it was a year ago, but with Menning mixing it up in the middle the defense should be particularly stout again, and that makes the Jaguars a threat even with the move to a new classification.
