Aarhus to play for national team

Shawn Aarhus only played in six games this season for Benson's football team but that was enough to earn national recognition. The defensive lineman is now set to play for the U.S. Under-18 National Team on Jan. 28 at ESPN's Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.

Aarhus collected 16 solo tackles and 25 assists including seven for a loss with a fumble recovery last season to earn a spot on the Tribune's all-area honorable mention team. He also was named the Mid-State Sub 2 Defensive Lineman of the Year.

The 6-foot-4 senior also spent time at offensive tackle for the Braves but will spend his time on the national team as a defensive end. He joins a team with players from across the country. Linebackers coach Matt Geginheimer is the only other Minnesotan on the team. He coaches at Prior Lake.

The Americans will have a tough battle as they take on the Canadian Under-18 team on Jan. 28. It has been a one-sided rivalry as the Canadians have won all six games in Under-18 competition.
