June 28, 201230. (tie) Beau Bremer, T-DE, Boone Central. 6-6, 220. Bench - 240, Squat - 400, 40 - 4.9. OK, this is a little ridiculous, a five-way tie for 30th, but I just couldn't leave these guys off the list. As for Bremer, he's tall, rangy, country strong. "Beau has the capability to block anybody he comes up against and is a force in the defensive line," says Boone Central head coach Arnie Johnson. See, how can I leave a guy like THAT off?!
30. Marshall Oetting, QB-DB, Lincoln Lutheran. 5-9, 155. Other stats NA. OK, so he's small, but he makes big plays in an offense bent on passing the football. Last season Oetting passed for 1,883 yards and 22 TDs, with only eight interceptions.
30. (tie) Pat Knott, RB-LB, Ogallala. 6-1, 205. Bench - 315, Squat - 405, 40 - 4.9. An excellent two-way player, an all-district pick in 2011, Knott has the potential be dominant on both sides of the ball this fall, says his head coach, Jeff McBride.
30. (tie) Ryan Chramosta, RB-DB, Minden. Other stats NA. Overshadowed by last year's brilliant senior class, Chramosta went about his business, earning all-district honors as a defensive back on a Whippet team which reached the C-1 semifinals. This season he becomes more of an offensive factor, where he should excel.
30. (tie) Dylan Jaskulski, L-DL, Wahoo. 6-2, 230. Other stats NA. All-district and all-honorable mention in 2011; somebody had to be blocking, with Kavan and Abbot doing all that damage. "Dylan is a true warrior, somebody we see as a dominant lineman on both sides of the ball," says Wahoo head coach Chad Fox.
29. Eli Van Matre, RB-LB, Gibbon. 5-8, 140. Bench - 165, Squat - 335, 40 - 4.8. Now would be a good time to remind you all this list isn't designed for just Division I prospects. Van Matre ain't big but he's all football. A fearless runner between the tackles, he's rushed for over 2,000 yards in his career and has twice been named all-district.
28. Clayton Lange, L-DL, Ord. 6-2, 265. Bench - 330, Squat - 450, 40 - NA. A two-time all-district player who is getting some Division I attention, Lange is a dominant player at the line of scrimmage. "He is physical, strong and has a great motor," says Ord head coach Mark Hagge. "And just as important he's a great leader for our team."
27. Austin Havlena, RB-DB, David City. 5-10, 180. Bench - 220, Squat - 385, 40 - NA. A first-year starter in 2011, Havlena had the proverbial breakout season, rushing for 1,311 yards and 11 TDs, and also proving to be a good kick returner.
26. Riley Knake, WB-LB, Norfolk Catholic. 6-4, 185. Other stats NA. An outstanding all-around athlete - he was all-state honorable mention in both football and basketball - Knake covers a lot of ground as a linebacker and as a receiver he caught 26 passes for 333 yards.
