(Players are seniors unless noted)


Brad Davison, Maple Grove, 6-4, 200: Has all the attributes of a Division I QB: Poise, arm strength, size, athleticism, leadership. Passed for 2,418 yards and 23 TDS, rushed for 891 yards and 15 TDs. Selected Wisconsin for basketball.


Wade Sullivan, Lakeville North, 5-9, 179: Metro's best combination of strength and speed. Always gets positive yards. Rushed for 1,787 yards, 31 touchdowns.

Jalen Frye, Mahtomedi, 5-7, 160: Explodes through holes and runs through arm tackles. Has speed to pull away from defenders. Ran for nearly 1,700 yards, scored 20 TDs.

Ryder Beckman, Monticello, 5-10, 181: Enviable amalgam of power, speed and elusivness. Rushed for 1,281 yards, 16 TDs. Owns school yardage records in rushing (3,302) and kickoff returns (1,091).


Isaac Ferm, Farmington, 6-3, 190: A matchup nightmare for opposing coaches because he has the size to fend off defenders and the athleticism to run by them. Wins the 50-50 battles. Caught 10 TDs.

Tyler Johnson, Buffalo, 6-0, 160: Instinctive player with football smarts, amazing hands and better-than-expected speed. Set a state record for receiving yards in one game with 345 in a loss to Blaine. Finished with 65 receptions for more than 1,000 yards.


Eric Abojei, Cooper, 6-5, 310: A mauler with a commitment to Minnesota. Plays with a strong base, dominates defenders. Incredibly strong. Said one coach, "We lost our defensive end. I think he's inside him."

Ronald Audette, Elk River, jr., 6-4, 305: A lithe athlete with quick feet trapped in a lineman's body. Had 62 pancake blocks before the state tournament. Also excels on defense.

Ian Bass, Rosemount, jr., 6-4, 273: Coach Jeff Erdmann called him "our best offensive lineman." Others agreed, with one opposing coach calling him "gritty and tough."

J.J Drew, Eden Prairie, 6-6, 310: Size is imposing, allows him to control defensive linemen with his bulk. Heady and smart, committed to Harvard.

Brent Laing, Lake- ville North, 6-4, 255: The leader of the quickest offensive line Panthers coach Brian Vossen has had. Relentless and driven. Vossen called him "the hardest working lineman I've ever had."


Brock Boltmann, Edina, 6-1, 197: Possesses exceptionally quick feet, ability to change directions without stopping. Great defensive back, but will play QB at North Dakota. Passed for 1,376 yards, rushed for 543.
