Preston Woods, South St. Paul, 2013 All-Metro football

GREG MENARD

Lakeville North • DE

6-2, 225. Tremendous all-around athlete. At his best as a speed rusher but can drop into coverage. Has 175 career tackles, 24 sacks. Headed to North Dakota State.

JASHON CORNELL

Cretin-Derham Hall • DE • Jr.

6-4, 230. Considered the top junior LB recruit in the nation. Devastating pass rusher who led the Raiders in sacks. Opponents avoided his side of the field.

DAILEN WALKER

St. Paul Central • NG

6-1, 320. MVP of the St. Paul Conference. Great two-gap player who is light on his feet. Swallows ball-carriers. Finished with 54 tackles, nine for loss, and four sacks.

PRESTON WOODS

South St. Paul • DT

6-2, 290. Two-way starter who can control both sides of the ball. Has 84 tackles, 13 for loss and three forced fumbles. Surprisingly quick laterally. Likely will play in the Big Ten.

DREW GREELY

Wayzata • DE

6-3, 240. Fast and agile yet immensely strong upper body. Moves well sideline-to-sideline, thanks to 4.7 40-yard speed. Has offers from Air Force and North Dakota.

CRAIG SZYMANSKI

Rosemount • LB

6-2, 210. Great recognition. Plays downhill and never misses tackles. Has 19.5 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. Coach Jeff Erdmann called him “the best outside linebacker we have had in 15 years.”
