Star Tribune preseason all-metro dream team

  • Updated: August 27, 2014 - 1:38 AM

It might not be clear to opponents, but Totino-Grace’s Ben Mezzenga (8) cannot fly. He can, however, make himself very obvious from the defensive backfield and on kick returns.

Seth Green, East Ridge, jr., 6-3, 185: A national recruiting battle is brewing for the RGIII clone, including Oregon, Texas and even Minnesota.


Running Backs

Robbie Grimsley, Hutchinson, sr., 6-1, 185: Breakaway threat to go the distance on any play. Committed to NDSU.

Will Rains, Eden Prairie, sr., 5-10, 207: Powerful and explosive. Should put up big numbers behind EP’s always-stout offensive line.


Tight End

Blake Moreno, St. Francis, sr., 6-6, 250: Crushing blocker with soft hands and the ability to run after the catch.


Wide Receivers

Jesper Horsted, Roseville, sr., 6-4, 185: Athletic, with a lanky frame and exceptional body control in the air.

Ben Boone, Edina, sr., 6-3, 200: A matchup nightmare. Too strong for cornerbacks, too fast for linebackers.


Offensive Line

Bronson Dovich, Chaska, sr., 6-6, 290: Quick feet and a punishing hitter. Committed to Minnesota.
