High school, college, it matters not — The Big Hurt and awards just go together.

Having recovered from a devastating injury last season, Central Washington University red-shirt sophomore offensive lineman Nick Streubel was rewarded Wednesday when he was tabbed as a First-Team All-League selection.

The Coupeville High School grad, an All-League and All-State player in his prep days, was one of 10 Wildcats honored by Great Northwest Athletic Conference coaches.

Central Washington rolled to an 11-0 mark, captured its first league title in five seasons, and is a #1 seed heading into the NCAA D-II playoffs.

The Wildcats nabbed four special awards, in addition to their All-Conference picks.

Senior linebacker Kevin Haynes was the Defensive Player of the Year, senior Bo Banner was the Defensive Lineman of the Year and junior transfer quarterback Reilly Hennessey was the Newcomer of the Year.

Topping things off, CWU head coach Ian Shoemaker was hailed as the Coach of the Year.

In a league dominated by juniors and seniors, Streubel was one of only four sophomores to be named as a First-Team player.

Playoffs? Yes, we’re talking playoffs.

Coupeville High School grad Nick Streubel, now a starting lineman for the Central Washington University football team, is headed to the postseason, and he even gets a week to rest up.

The Wildcats capped an 11-0 regular season Saturday with a 42-28 road win over Humboldt State, claiming their first Great Northwest Athletic Conference title since 2012.

Still coasting on the buzz from its big win, Central then nabbed one of four #1 seeds for the NCAA D-II playoffs.

CWU, which reps Super Region Four, is joined by Indiana (PA), West Alabama and Fort Hays State as top seeds, and all four get a first-round bye in the 28-team tourney.

After a week off, the Wildcats host the winner of Winona State (Minn.) vs. Texas A&M-Commerce in the round of 16.

That game will be in Ellensburg Nov. 25.

Streubel, who was a standout football, basketball and track star during his days in Coupeville, is a red-shirt sophomore for Central.

Nick Streubel is healthy and the college football world trembles.

After missing all but one game last year thanks to an injury, The Big Hurt is back in the lineup for the Central Washington University football squad and the Wildcats can not be beaten.

A 17-10 come-from-behind win over North Alabama Saturday lifts CWU, ranked #9 in the last NCAA D-II poll, to a crisp 8-0.

The Wildcats have three regular season games left, all against league foes who they beat the first time around.

Central hosts Azusa Pacific for Senior Night Oct. 28 in a game which will be streamed by ESPN3, then hits the road to face Simon Fraser and Humboldt State the next two weeks.

Streubel, a three-sport star (football, basketball, track and field) during his days wandering Coupeville’s campus, is a red-shirt sophomore.

With six games under his belt this season, he has logged time as a lineman in 13 college games during his career.

They were once Wolves, but now they rep the Wildcats, Golden Eagles and Blue Jays.

Three Coupeville High School football alumni are chasing the college football dream this fall, in three different states.

Nick Streubel is the oldest of the trio, and the one having the biggest impact.

The Big Hurt, who’s now sculpted like a Greek god (while boasting the silkiest flowing locks in all the land) is a red-shirt sophomore at Central Washington University.

Having bounced back from an injury which kept him sidelined last year, Streubel is a starter on an offensive line which has carried the Wildcats to a 3-0 start.

Their latest win came Saturday, when Gavin Todd booted a 42-yard field with a second left on the clock, lifting CWU to a 17-16 thriller over Azusa Pacific.

Central, which entered the game ranked #23 in the latest D-II rankings (Azusa was #22) improved to a flawless 2-0 in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Meanwhile, Jacob Martin is a freshman linebacker/special teams player at Feather River College in California and Zane Bundy is a freshman kicker at Tabor College in Kansas.

Some are done, some are just beginning.

With the 2016-2017 school year reaching an end, a number of former Coupeville athletes are saying goodbye to life in college sports, while others are gearing up for their own runs.

The elder statesman, Mitch Pelroy, capped a five-year run as a football player at Montana Western, while Hailey Hammer and Monica Vidoni ended two-year stints at Everett Community College and Rainy River CC, respectively.

Also out the door is Jenn Spark, who played a year of soccer at Tacoma Community College.

She’s engaged to former Wolf hoops star Anthony Bergeron and is headed to San Diego to join him.

Looking towards the fall of 2017, here’s a list of former Wolves who we expect to be in the mix for a college sports career.

It’s an ever-changing list, so don’t be surprised to see additions or subtractions as we head down the winding road.

In alphabetic order:

Zane Bundy — After a year of learning on the sidelines at Santa Barbara City College, the former Wolf kicker is transferring to Tabor College in Kansas.

Ben Etzell — An All-League pick for his performance as a relief pitcher, he’ll be a senior at Saint John’s University in Minnesota next spring.

Kailey Kellner — 2017 CHS grad has signed to play hoops at D’Youville College in New York.

Dalton Martin — Enjoyed a successful freshman season as a discus thrower at Everett Community College.

Ally Roberts – 2017 CHS grad is joining the equestrian team at Western Washington University. The school provides its riders with steeds, dashing hopes she would take her horse, Tiger, to live with her in the dorms, TV sitcom-style.

Jacob Martin — 2017 CHS grad has signed to play football at Feather River College in Quincy, California. Golden Eagles coaches are projecting him to play strong safety.

Clay Reilly — 2017 CHS grad will try out for the baseball team at Skagit Valley College.

Kory Score — 2017 CHS grad will try out for the baseball team at Western Washington.

Makana Stone — After a tremendously successful freshman year on the basketball court at Whitman College (she became a starter and helped carry her team to the Elite Eight), she’ll be a key player for the Blues next winter.

Nick Streubel – He’s healthy after missing much of last season with a hand injury and he, and his flowing Samson hair locks, are expected to start on the line for the Central Washington University football squad. Will be a red-shirt sophomore.

Jonathan Thurston – 2017 CHS grad will try out for the Central Washington baseball squad.

Aaron Trumbull – Played first base at Olympic Community College as a freshman this spring, where he showed a slick glove.
