FIRST-TEAM OFFENSE

J.T. DenHartog, Hopkins, sr., QB: Makes plays with his arm, but had a 44-yard winning run against Houston Episcopal and a 91-yard TD run against Minnetonka. Was 147-for-256 for 1,693 yards, 17 TDs passing; 97-580 yards and seven TDs rushing.

Bridgeport Tusler, Osseo, sr., RB: The most indispensible on any team this year. Did everything at a high level, led on and off the field. Rushed for 1,173 yards and 16 TDs, caught 18 passes for 243 yards, three TDs. Intercepted a metro-leading eight passes.

Eji Ejiya, Spring Lake Park, jr., RB: Powerful (6-2, 210) junior rushed for a school record 1,475 yards in 156 carries. Scored 17 TDs. Led team in tackles at linebacker with 92. Played special teams, rarely left the field.

Jake Wieneke, Maple Grove, sr, WR: 6-4, 210. Physically dominant, among the few receivers who can control a game. Terrific hands and body control, surprising speed. Caught 53 passes for 1,130 yards and 13 TDs, scoring one in every game in which he played.

Noah Scarver, Mpls. Washburn, sr., TE: Two-way force, Minneapolis Conference Player of the Year. At 6-5, 234 pounds, dominated at defensive end. Caught 27 passes for 382 yards, seven TDS. Had 14 quarterback sacks, 39 total tackles, one interception return for a TD, two safeties.

Zach Ziemer, Lakeville North, sr, OL: The 6-5, 280-pounder has multiple D-I offers. A lacrosse player with quick feet. Excels at run blocking, gets downfield quickly.

John Bednarczyk, Totino-Grace, sr, OL: 6-3, 275, hard-nosed tackle and leader, never gets outworked. Primary blocker for getting tough yards. Agile enough to get off the line, set the edge.

Chad Fahning, DeLaSalle, sr., OL: 6-7, 280, OT. Anchored offensive and defensive lines. Dominates opposing linemen. Twenty D-I schools showing interest.

Michael Warren, Providence Academy, sr., OL: 6-5, 275 OT. A 4.9 40-yard dash. Straight-ahead run blocker, at his best using his agility on sweeps and screens. Wide base, long arms aid in pass protection.

Chandler Wright, Wayzata, sr, OL: 6-3, 265, OG. A mauler who blocks through the whistle. Louisiana native has received interest from Gophers, Iowa and Wisconsin.

James Onwualu, Cretin-Derham Hall, sr., athlete: 6-1, 210, WR/RB/KR. Minnesota's top recruit has an explosive burst, a knack for weaving through traffic and always makes the first man miss. Led the Raiders in rushing and receiving. Committed to Notre Dame.
