DES MOINES — The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) announced the 2019 football all-state teams on Tuesday. The teams were selected by print sports writers in Iowa during a meeting on Saturday.

Centerville had two selected to the Class 2A teams this year. Trent McCann was selected as a second team all-state kicker while McCain Oden was chosen as a third team all-state running back.

McCann, a senior, found himself on an all-state team for a third straight year. The Centerville kicker hit a school-record 52-yard field goal (second longest in the state this season) in the first game of the season against Albia.

He would make four of his five field goals this season and would make 28-of-30 extra point attempts. The Iowa State commit also finished second in Class 2A in touchbacks with 24.

Oden, a senior, makes his first appearance on the all-state teams after having a great senior season in the backfield. After missing a majority of his junior season due to injury, Oden came back strong this year to become a 1,000-yard rusher.

Oden would finish with 1,008 yards on 167 carries (six yards per carry) with 16 touchdowns (tied for eighth in Class 2A). He rushed for at least 100 yards in five of Centerville’s nine games with the Big Reds going 4-1 in those games. Oden also grabbed seven catches for 78 yards.

Team captains were selected in each of the six Iowa high school football classes. Captains must be a senior and selected to the first all-state team and are voted on by sports writers in each class.

Captains selected were: Thomas Even, Don Bosco, Gilbertsville (8 man); Tate Hagen, West Hancock (Class A); Hunter Dekkers, West Sioux (Class 1A); Wyatt Wegener, Algona (Class 2A); Calvin Harris, Western Dubuque (Class 3A); Michael Keough, Dowling Catholic West Des Moines (Class 4A).
