Ethan Leibold

Turkey Valley’s Ethan Leibold goes up strong to grab a rebound in a game against North Fayette Valley last week.
It’s as if Ethan Leibold has taken a liking to the number 33. Wearing the number 33, the Turkey Valley junior scored 33 points against Central Tuesday to lead his team to its second consecutive conference win. His best game last year came in the second week of December — he scored 33 that night as...
Dylan Elsbernd makes an off-balance catch of a 2-point conversion Friday against Rockford.
There was a touchdown roughly every 2.8 minutes when Turkey Valley and Rockford battled in the first round of the state playoffs Friday. “I thought we played hard and executed on offense,” Trojan quarterback Ethan Leibold said of the 64-58 TV loss. “But we could have had a few more stops on defense...
Turkey Valley quarterback Ethan Leibold had another big night — running for two touchdowns and throwing for two more — in the Trojan win over Lasing Kee on Friday.
After a loss to Central City, Turkey Valley couldn’t afford another defeat if they wanted to advance to the state playoffs in a wild card spot.  But when the Trojans traveled to Kee High Friday, they were down several players due to injury, another thing they could not afford. What’s more, the...
Turkey Valley’s Ethan Leibold reaches the ball across the goal line during the Trojans’ season-opening victory against AGWSR on Friday night.
With 72 yards passing and 201 yards rushing, Turkey Valley mixed up their offense just enough to keep AGWSR’s defense off balance in the season opener Friday. The 38-13 score and 273 yards of total offense may sound like a full night’s work, but only half the game was played.  With the Trojans...
Ethan Leibold, above, was selected to the Upper Iowa Conference first team at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.
Turkey Valley didn’t dominate the Upper Iowa all-conference lists as much as some might expect of a team that won their second straight conference title, and didn’t lose a UIC game until one slipped through their grasp late in the season. Ethan Leibold earned first team honors, while Evan Drilling...
Ethan Leibold scored 26 points with 17 rebounds in the Trojan win over Postville.
Calling someone a beast isn’t generally a compliment, but that was Chris Sullivan’s intent when he gave the label to Ethan Leibold. Just a sophomore, Leibold set the bar pretty high when he set two career highs — 26 points and 17 rebounds —  in a 56-52 win over Postville Friday night. But it took a...
Cale Reicks (22) and Will Einwalter (25) were both named to the District 2 first team after the season ended.
Turkey Valley may not have had the quantity of players on the District 2, 8-man All-District lists as they have in recent year, but the players that were named certainly had the quality part covered. Three of the four seniors on the team were awarded postseason honors, but there were also a pair of...
Turkey Valley’s Cale Reicks “climbs the ladder” to pick off a pass in a game against West Central.
    Turkey Valley fans have grown accustomed to the big plays the Trojans have scored on in the past years, and those exciting moments continue during the 2017 season.    At least three of them came Friday night in the 64-8 win over North Iowa, which the Trojans played after a long drive to Buffalo...
The last time Turkey Valley and Kee High played, freshman Ethan Leibold scored 12 points. So even though the Trojans won by 13 in that Feb. 3 contest, with Leibold out with a case of the flu in their opening round of district action against  Kee Thursday, coach Chris Sullivan knew it would be hard...
