The Luther College football team held its annual end of the year awards banquet in February and recognized the 2017 letter winners and team award recipients, including three Decorah graduates.
   Norse senior Bryce Pierce (2014), senior Sean Trewin (2014) and junior Jacob Leeps (2015) were all presented letters. Pierce played wide receiver, Trewin was the starting center for the offensive line and Leeps played on the defensive line.
   The trio helped lead Luther to a record of 6-4 and its first winning season since 2005. The Norse finished alone in third place in the Iowa Conference standings (5-3), their highest finish since 2004.
