As we head to the defense, we head back to Pella High School, and while we’ve featured some great defensive players thus far, the next selection on the KNIA/KRLS All-Decade team is a no-doubt selection, and one of the best linebackers to roam the fields of south central Iowa. Andrew Schneider features Pella’s Nathan Clayberg.

Two time first team All-State LB (2012, 2013), 2014 Shrine Bowl
