Albert Lea Tigers football players Aaron Klatt and Caleb Gaudian have received Class AAAA first team Academic All-State honors.

Both lettered three years in football for the Tigers and received Big Nine Conference All-Conference honors the past two years.

Along with being three-sport athletes, Klatt and Gaudian are involved in National Honor Society and band or choir.

Academics are important to the two boys as evident in their GPAs while taking several accelerated placement courses.

Klatt and Gaudian both plan on attending four-year colleges and to continue in athletics at the collegiate level.
