West Fargo senior quarterback Andy Gravdahl has been named Gatorade North Dakota Football Player of the Year after helping lead the Packers to the North Dakota Class 3A state championship.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Gravdahl passed for 2,265 yards and 22 touchdowns, leading the Packers to a 12-0 state championship season. He also rushed for 640 yards and 10 touchdowns on 69 carries. Gravdahl was named the Class 3A senior athlete of the year.

"Andy Gravdahl is the best high school quarterback I've seen in some time," West Fargo Sheyenne head coach Jeremy Newton, who coached against Gravdahl, said in a press release. "His throws are very accurate, he's a great leader and he can beat you with his feet if you have everything else covered."

Former West Fargo offensive and defensive lineman Brandon Metz won the same award last season. Metz is now on the North Dakota State wrestling team.
