In an unconventional season one constant that remained for Clear Creek Amana was the chaos TJ Bollers was able to cause on the defensive line.
The unusual 2020 season for the Clippers featured the familiar fanfare for Bollers as the standout senior defensive end earned all-state honors for the third consecutive season on Tuesday when the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association released its all-state squads.
A rare four-year starter on the Clear Creek Amana defensive line, Bollers was a second team selection in 2018 and a third-team pick last year before being named to the Class 3A first team defense this season.
Bollers had perhaps his best season as a prep this fall collecting 35.5 tackles including 25 solo stops while helping the Clippers to a 4-4 record.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pound Wisconsin recruit had 6.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks this season as a two-way starter that doubled as an offensive tackle.
Joining Bollers on the Class 3A all-state team was junior Ben Swails who was a second-team all-state selection at punter.
Swails averaged 42.5 yards per punt on 22 attempts and also led the Clippers with six interceptions.
