Football: Herald All-Area First Team


LB/Cohl Kueter     Maquoketa

The season: A repeat selection, he set school’s single-season record with 93 tackles. Rushed for 602 yards on 116 carries with nine touchdowns and caught 10 passes for 148 yards.

The word: “Career-leading tackler for Maquoketa with 284 in his three years. He is the type of kid that would run through a brick wall for his teammates.” — Coach Kevin Bowman

LB/Dylan Binion     Erie/P’town

The season: Led the defense with 97 tackles.

The word: “He’s a kid who’s very coachable. He does exactly what we ask him to do. He’s a good wrestler for us, which sets the mentality for the way he plays at linebacker. We ask him to take on some pretty good-sized fullbacks. We look for him to fill some big offensive shoes, as well.” — Coach Chuck Milem

LB/Drew Schroeder     Central DeWitt

The season: Recorded a team-high 77 tackles. Named first-team all-state in Class 3A as an offensive lineman.

The word: “Not necessarily the most vocal kid, a little bit undersized, but there wasn’t a kid beating him at one time. He’s not physically imposing in his nature, but the things he brought as a linebacker, he emerged for us.” — Coach Mike Miller

DB/Alex Caldwell     Clinton

The season: A third-team All-Area pick a year ago, he led Clinton’s defense this season with 103 tackles despite playing much of the season with a broken hand that required surgery.

The word: “What comes to mind is tough. He’s going to be wherever there’s an impact. Going through the injury he suffered, to not miss a game and play with a cast on his arm, he did some things to lead by example. Aggressive, has a good nose for the ball, and we moved him around to keep him at the ‘point of our spear.’ “ — Coach Lee Camp
