Pierz’s Dan Saehr to play in All-Star football game at Macalester College

Dan Saehr, a senior at Pierz Healy High School, has been selected to play in the Minnesota All-Star Football Classic June 29.

Saehr will be on the outstate team, which will play the all-stars from the Metro schools.

The 28th annual Minnesota All-Star Football Classic will be played Saturday, June 29, at 2 p.m. at Macalester College.

Saehr, son of Dave and Tammy Saehr, Pierz, will report to the All-Star football camp Sunday, June 23, for a week of practice.

“It is really an honor to be selected to play in this All-Star game. Many of the players have signed letters to play for Division I schools. Some players will be going to Nebraska and some will become Golden Gophers for the University of Minnesota. It will be interesting and a lot of fun,” explained Saehr .

Football honors for Saehr are nothing new for the 6’1” 170-pound Pioneer quarterback.

Saehr was a three-time selection to the Central Minnesota Conference; was on the Honorable Mention All-State team last fall; on the 2002 St. Cloud Times Honorable Mention team; was on the 2002 Brainerd Dispatch All-Area team; was the Brainerd Dispatch Athlete of the Week; and was named the CMC Quarterback of the Year, throwing a CMC record 19 touchdown passes.

Saehr also holds the Pierz school record for throwing 25 TD passes in a single season.

Some of his football memories are: winning the CMC championship; beating Holdingford, the three-time CMC champs; throwing five touchdowns in a game; and throwing the winning TD with under two minutes left in a playoff game.

Saehr was also a two-time All-CMC selection in basketball; the CMC Male Athlete of the Week in basketball; has been on the Brainerd Dispatch Athlete of the Week in both basketball and baseball; and a three-time All-CMC selection in baseball.

The all-around athlete plans to continue to play three sports, football, basketball and baseball, for Central Lakes College in Brainerd next year.
