Stoughton High School will be represented by a player and a coach in the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Star Game on Saturday, July 20.

Cade Spilde – a 2019 SHS graduate – and head football coach Dan Prahl will be on the South Large School team for the game, which will be played at 5 p.m. at Titan Stadium on the campus of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

“We expect to win,” Spilde said, “But at the same time we’re playing for a good cause. It’s about meeting new people and playing a game against the best guys in the state.”

Spilde did a little bit of everything for a Vikings team that finished 6-4 last fall. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder was a first-team Badger South all-conference selection as a linebacker and punter and second-team all-conference as a kicker.

He recorded 71 total tackles (46 solos, seven for loss), two fumble recoveries, a forced fumble, an interception and half a sack in 2018. He averaged 37.7 yards per punt, with 10 of 25 punts landed inside the 20-yard line. He was also 3-for-5 on field goals, and 18-for-19 on extra points.

Prahl will serve as an assistant coach for the South Large School team in his first appearance at the WFCA All-Star Game.

“You hear from other coaches what it’s like,” Prahl said. “I’m coming in open-minded. I just want to have fun and enjoy it for the experience. This is bigger than football. It’s really cool to see how together everyone is.”
