Tyler Schnitzler of Kenesaw garnered All-State football recognition from the Omaha World Herald and Lincoln Journal Star. The 5-10, 170 pound junior at Kenesaw Public Schools was selected as quarterback and co-captain for the D1-eight man first team on both the World Herald and Journal Star rosters.

This marks the second year of post-season All-State accolades for the young man who is the great-grandson of Edna Christenson of Wauneta and the grandson of Alvin and Joyce Christenson of Lincoln.

Schnitzler rushed for 1,343 yards and 31 touchdowns this season, earning him a spot on the 37th Annual Bobby Mills 1,000-Yard Club. In 2011 there were 85 Nebraska high school players achieving the rushing milestone, including 62 seniors, 17 juniors and six sophomores.

Schnitzler led his team to an 11-1 season, falling to undefeated Elgin/Pope John in the state playoff semifinals to finish ranked at No. 2 in D1-8 behind E/PJ.

During Kenesaw’s 2011 campaign, Schnitzler also had 964 yards passing, connecting on 14 touchdowns with only one interception thrown throughout the entire season.

He is the son of Craig and Julie Schnitzler of Kenesaw.
