*Bobby Mills (1000 Yard Guy) 2019 All-State Football Teams*

Omaha Skutt's Tyson Gordon (#18/White in middle of end zone) and Scottsbluff's Sabastain Harsh (#4/Red jersey, far right) are two of three non Class A players to be named to Bobby Mills (1000 Yard Guy) Super-State team.

My All-State teams differ from most. As most of you know, I am not hesitant to add an additional player or players to a team if I feel a young man deserves All-State recognition.

Being named to an all-state team is an elite honor, and while it is not my intention to “water down” or diminish the all-state teams by adding too many players, I am never going to leave a player off that “just missed”.

Here is an example explaining my logic pertaining to this matter. There were 32 teams competing in Class A football this season. Let’s use the LINEBACKER position for the example.

Let’s say each Class A school started FOUR linebackers on defense. Four linebackers times 32 teams would equal 128 starting linebackers in the state at the Class A level. If I name 4 to my All-State team, that means a very elite 3.1% of all linebackers playing at the Class A level made my All-State team.

If I added ONE more linebacker, that still would only bump that percentage up to 3.9%. Even a pair of additional linebackers named to an all-state team would just nudge the percentage up to 4.7%, still a very elite group in my humble opinion.

With that formula in mind, I am now proud to present my 2019 1000 Yard Guy All-State Football Teams:
