Mike Rose Leads College Football America Yearbook’s 2021 Preseason Dream Team On Butkus Award Watch List

Iowa State linebacker Mike Rose leads the way for 2021 College Football America Yearbook Preseason Dream Team members selected to the 2021 Butkus Award Watch List.

Rose is the reigning Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. He also earned First- and Second-Team All-America honors from several outlets in 2020.

In all, six players on the College Football America Yearbook Dream Team made the 2021 Butkus Award Watch List, the award given to the best linebacker in college football.

The College Football America Yearbook Dream Team is the publication’s version of a major college All-America Team with a twist. Instead of picking a first team, second team and/or third team, the team is presented in the context of an actual Football Bowl Subdivision program, with the book’s publisher, Kendall Webb, selecting the team in the role as “head coach.” FBS teams are limited to 85 scholarships, and the College Football America Yearbook Dream Team is subject to these same constraints.

The College Football America 2021 Yearbook features more than 900 college football teams from the United States and Canada in more than 250 striking, full-color pages. That includes every team from the NCAA (FBS, FCS, Division II and Division III), NAIA, NJCAA, CCCAA and U Sports (Canada). It also includes updates on club football, one-year postgraduate prep/sports academies and Mexican college football, along with dozens of action shots and stadium photos taken by the CFA staff.

The print edition is available online via Amazon.com and other major retailers such as Barnes & Noble.
