In an attempt to distract myself from America’s current events I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about former Minnesota preps that went on to succeed at one of the hardest and most unique levels of college football: JUCOs. While we actually have a pretty successful tradition of junior college athletes from the past decade come from the Land of 10,000 Lakes, there are no cumulative guides or lists, so I thought I would go-ahead and try to create my own All-Minnesota JUCO Team from the past 10 seasons. MN preps have historically committed to a select number of JUCOs, so this list included RCTC, NDSCS, Iowa Western, Iowa Central, Central Lakes, Minnesota State Fergus Falls, Ridgewater, Fon du Lac, Vermillion CC, Itasca CC, Mesabi Range, MN West, but there are a few other random JUCOs spread throughout the country that have hosted MN boys under their gridiron spotlights. Because most junior college websites do not go further back than 2013 with their rosters and lack an organized history of where their players have signed over the years, and their are no national tracking databases for JUCO signings, this took some work, so please forgive me if I have forgotten anyone (especially from 2010-2013). However, I’m happy with what I did find, so I am pleased to present to you this Minnesota All-JUCO team featuring former MN prep studs at every position on the gridiron. Based on a combination of junior college and four-year institution success, this list features athletes from the 2010 season through last fall. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for reading!
First Team: Nick Rooney (Minnetonka/Rochester CTC/Adams St) 6’2, 210 lbs. MN All-Star Game participant. Threw for over 3,100 yards and 25 TDs as a Skipper and was a MN Mr. Football nominee.

HM: Ricardo Johnson III (Cretin Derham Hall/San Bernardino Valley JC/Ohio Northern/St. Olaf College) 6’2, 205 lbs. I am a total homer for putting RJIII on the list as I graduated with him at St. Olaf in 2019, but Johnson III is a legitimate player who was on a JUCO tear before an injury derailed his first JUCO season. As a senior in HS he was rated as the #6 overall player in MN in the c/o 2014, the #47 overall DT QB in 2014 in America, and was an All-Conference player. Johnson III received a Hawaii offer as a freshman in high school, but bet on himself and went the JUCO route after his senior year – heading to sunny California for San Bernardino Valley junior college. There – according to St. Olaf’s website – he “played in four games as a freshman quarterback and captain of the Wolverines, named “Offensive Player of the Week” in his first collegiate game… Completed 45-of-88 (51.1%) for 579 yards and four touchdowns with a pair of rushing touchdowns.” He then committed to Ohio Northern, helped them to a DIII national playoff berth, and then became a bit lost with football and returned home to MN. It was there he almost lost his love for football, but St. Olaf came calling, and I was lucky enough to call Johnson III my teammate and captain, as he is a helluva person and not a bad QB to boot. He as awarded MIAC Offensive POTW twice, and was an All-MIAC HM performer as a senior. ESPN2 Nationally Televised Game CDH vs. West LA CC

First Team: Anthony Anderson (Eden Prairie/Iowa Western CC/Marshall University) 6’2, 245 lbs. The Minneapolis product went outside the 612 for high school and attended EP to play basketball, but after Mike Grant got in his ear and playing time on the hardwood became harder to find, Anderson gave football a try: and holy cow was it the right move! Anderson is actually a friend of mine who used to play football back at Pearl Park with some of my buddies (slight flex), and he had an unreal prep career as the Eagles starting running back as he helped them win two state titles and rushed for almost 1,400 yards as a senior. He was all the MN All-Star Game Offensive MVP his senior year, and attended IWCC where he had 78 carries for 352 yards nine TDs for the 10-2 Reivers in 2014, where they fell in the NJCAA national title game to East Mississippi CC. He was named All-Midwest Football Conference and Iowa CC Athletic Conference second team selection. He signed with Marshall University, and contributed three years at RB and finished his career with 839 yards from scrimmage and 11 TDs and got a tryout with the Minnesota Vikings. All three of years at Marshall have highlights on Youtube, but I just linked his senior year! IWCC Highlights 2013 Eden Prairie Highlights
