Below are excerpts from the WCT article
Morris/C-A, Senior, RB/LB

Morris/Chokio-Alberta had just four wins in 2017. This fall, the Tigers matched that mark in the first half of the season. And Camden Arndt was the catalyst behind the team's two-win improvement in 2018.
The Morris/C-A senior finished the season with 1,226 rushing yards and averaged 8.1 yards per carry, nearly a yard higher than as a junior. Arndt also increased his production as a receiver, hauling in six more catches with 119 more yards and two more touchdowns from 2017.
Arndt had 36 total touchdowns in his high school career and finishes second place in school history in career rushing yards (2,664).
"His ability as a runner, receiver and returner are well documented in his stat line," said Morris/C-A head coach Kevin Pope, "but he also does many of the little things well. He is a good blocker and an impactful defender."
