Twin Cedars wide receiver Garret Pettyjohn was named a first team all-stater after producing the only 1,000-yard receiving season in the 8-Man game this season. Brent Parker, the second-leading passer in the state, joined Saber teammate Corey Harrell on the 8-Man All-State second team while Hunter Embray made it four Twin Cedars' seniors to earn all-state honors with a third-team selection at linebacker.
Seniors Eric Adam and Jared Bond were both named to the second-team of Class A's INA All-State team. Adam, a recent Iowa Bankers Association scholarship winner, was named to the offensive line of the second team while Bond earned a spot as a defensive lineman.
Only one area player was named to a Class 1A INA All-State team. Cardinal senior Nathan Yeager, who set a school record for tackles in a season with 135, earned a third-team selection as an all-state linebacker.
