Monona Grove cornerback Tyler Dahlhauser was named a part of the 2021 Associated Press Spring Season All-State football team.
“I was very excited to learn that I was named first team all state,” said Dahlhauser, who led the Monona Grove defense with 44 solo tackles.
In the alternate fall season that ran from March to May 2021, Dahlhauser also led the defense with two forced fumbles. In six games, Dahlhauser recorded four sacks, six tackles for loss and an interception.
“You know exactly what you are going to get with Tyler. He works really hard, he’s a guy that we almost have to hold back to get him some time off,” said Monona Grove football coach Brandon Beckwith.
Dahlhauser, a junior this year, helped lead the Silver Eagles to a 2-4 record with the defense allowing 24.5 points per game this season.
“His next step moving forward now is to really take some leadership roles with his teammates,” said Beckwith. “Making sure this offseason in the weight room that he’s holding everyone else accountable that he holds himself, and making sure that he brings everybody up around him better.”
