In my previous feature for Northstar Football News I highlighted and reviewed the careers of our very own Minnesota boys who were honored in the recently released 2019 All-MIAC award report. The 2019 All-MIAC First Team Offense was filled with former Minnesota preps who balled out in one of the top conferences in all of Division III, and who did the same under Friday night lights all throughout our Gopher state. Today we will dive into and examine the First Team Defense selections, and they are some hammers. These studs come from as far South as Mankato and as far North as Moorhead, and everywhere in between. Their paths to D3 vary, but there is no denying that they are all representing the state of MN proudly and had/are having an impressive 2019. Let’s shout these recruits out and review their lengthy college and prep accomplishments from our great state. I hope you enjoy!
