Bohannon nets 1,000, but Lions struggle

Jordan Bohannon joined his three older brothers in the 1,000 point club at Linn-Mar High School on Tuesday night, but the Lions struggled and there was no reason to celebrate the milestone.

The Waukee Warriors opened a 22-point lead in the fourth quarter and dumped Linn-Mar, 63-52, in the season opener at Linn-Mar.

Bohannon scored 12 points and raised his career total to 1,010, but he netted only two points in the second half (both on free throws) and was called for a technical foul when he slammed the ball to the floor when a call went against the Lions.

"That was totally my bad," he said contritely. "I was frustrated."

Jason Bohannon, who was Iowa's Mr. Basketball in 2006, poured in 1,679 points during his career at Linn-Mar. Matt Bohannon, now starring at Northern Iowa, collected 1,065 points with the Lions. And Zach Bohannon scored 1,033 points at Linn-Mar.

All told, the four Bohannons have scored 4,787 points for the Lions.


Beyer joins Kennedy basketball team

The Kennedy Cougars have a new player on the basketball team who looks vaguely familiar, but it's hard to tell without his helmet and shoulder pads.

He's a phenomenal athlete who can jump out of the gym, a 6-foot-7 high jumper during the track season and a kid who can play just about any spot on the football field and play it very well.

Yes, it might be, it could be, it is -- Shaun Beyer, the captain of the Class 4A all-state football team and the proud recipient of a football scholarship to the University of Iowa.

Beyer has never played basketball at Kennedy before, but he's decided to give it a try this season as a senior to see if he can help Coach Jon McKowen's club and have some fun.

Beyer rested for a week after the football season and practiced for the first time Monday with the basketball team. He does not plan to play in this weekend's games in Sioux City and Spirit Lake due to a family affair, but he plans to be in uniform next week for the Cougars.


Jake Mauer will manage Kernels again

Maybe Jake Mauer should buy a house in Cedar Rapids and move his family to Iowa on a full-time basis instead of commuting between here and the Twin Cities.

He's coming back to town again.

The Minnesota Twins announced Tuesday morning that Mauer will manage the Cedar Rapids Kernels again in 2016 for his fourth straight season at the helm of the local Class A team.

Mauer, 37, has compiled a 238-180 record in three years with the Kernels and has taken them to the Midwest League playoffs all three years.

This will be Mauer's ninth season as a manager in the Twins organization.

Mauer was the 23rd-round pick of the Twins in 2001 and played five seasons in the Twins system, including 84 games in the Midwest League for Quad Cities. He is the brother of Twins catcher Joe Mauer and attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minn.


Even headed for bowl game in Florida

Nate Even had modest goals when he graduated from Xavier High School in 2011 and headed to Loras College, but he set all sorts of school records with the Duhawks and now is headed to a national all-star football game in Florida.

Even will play in the 2015 National Bowl this Sunday in Miami, joining fellow All-American and All-Conference seniors from Division II, Division III and NAIA schools.

Even finished his remarkable career at Loras with 220 receptions for 3,314 yards and 26 touchdowns, which are all school records. He caught 77 passes for 1,282 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2014 and followed that outstanding performance with 74 catches for 1,151 yards and 12 TDs this year.


Kennedy dominates Metro football stats

Class 4A state finalist Cedar Rapids Kennedy, not surprisingly, had individual offensive performances this football season that rank among the Metro's all-time best.

Running back Tyler Dralle rushed for a Metro record 2,241 yards in 14 games. That total eclipsed the previous mark of 2,212 yards set in 2009 by Washington's Andre Dawson. Dralle's 3,156 rushing yards and 34 career TDs also rank among the Metro's best.

Kennedy all-purpose star Shaun Beyer, a University of Iowa commit, accounted for 1,524 yards rushing (682) and receiving (842) this season. His 77 career receptions and 1,313 yards rank among the Metro's Top 10 all-time.

Beyer, an all-stater along with Dralle, also punted for a 44.4-yard average on 36 attempts. That average certainly would be among the Metro's all-time bests, if not the best, but complete records are not available.

In team statistics, Kennedy (13-1) led all Metro teams in rushing offense, total offense, rushing defense, total defense and scoring defense.

Xavier's Maliki Wilson, second behind Dralle in Metro rushing, posted one of the top 20 totals in Metro history with 1,232 yards. Saints junior quarterback Bryce Schulte is climbing the Metro record charts with 34 career TD passes.

Washington's Tavian Patrick, Jefferson's Valentino Green and Prairie's Jalen Rima all accounted for more than 1,000 yards combined rushing and receiving. Rima has committed to Northern Iowa.
