Cedar Rapids senior Brian Choat was recently selected for the Six Man Football Coaches Association 2010 All-State Team.
Choat was named as a defensive end on the All-State 1st team defense after helping lead Cedar Rapids to a 5-4 record that included a loss to eventual state runner-up Greeley/Wolbach in the first round of the six-man playoffs.
Two additional Tigers were named members of the All-State 2nd team offense. Senior Adam McIntyre was selected as an end and junior Tyler Hellbusch at center. Cedar Rapids senior Tyler Zentner received Honorable Mention in the voting, as did St. Edward sophomore Austin Bilstein.
