Kiel highlights All-State football team
By By Mike Grimala
It's time to unveil the ESPNHS All-State football team, but you can probably already guess the identity of one of the first team quarterbacks. If you can't: A) You live under a rock, and; B) You need to work on your headline-reading comprehension. Gunner Kiel, the No. 2 QB in the ESPNU 150, was an easy call to lead our team.
The All-State team is based on projections for on-field performance and accomplishments, not necessarily recruiting potential. For a list of the state's top recruits, click here. If you disagree with any of the selections here: A) You live under a rock, and; B) You should leave a comment or hit me up on Twitter (@ESPNHSGrimala).
