1000 Yard Guy's Class B All-State Football Teams

Posted Tuesday, November 30, 2010, at 11:14 AM

Lincoln Pius X defender, Blake Merritt picks one off against Gretna *photo courtesy of Journal-Star
This is the first season I have picked an entire offense/defense. On defense, all positions are not included as indicated by one lineman. The obvious problem with this selection is that I do not have the luxury of coaches sending in nomination sheets like the major newspapers receive. My base for these picks is live games I have witnessed, game film (lots of it) and conversions with coaches throughout the state.

Classes C-1, C-2 D-1, and D-2 will follow the next few days, with C-1 coming later Tuesday.

Only one player listed west of Aurora? Looks very biased to the eastern part of the state which is something western Nebraska athletes have tolerated for many years.

I agree 100%. Just too many talented players from that side of the state this season. The West had some greats: Branden Yost, Keith Wallace, Ross Stewert, Jake Schlager of McCook, Robby Almond-Holdrege, Tyler McKeone-Lexington, Trevor Thompson-Alliance, Josh Swanson-Gering, Seth Rohrer, Mickey Marez-Scottsbluff, Ryan Bender, Matt Overmiller, Brady Rutt-Hastings High and Justin Roehrich-GINW. Should have an All-West Team, might be fun.
