Aaron Meredith has been selected as a member of the Illinois High School Football Coaches' Association Academic All-State Team.
Meredith was a two-way player this past season for the Silver Streaks football team. He was a slot-back on offense and a first-team All-Western Big Six selection on defense as a safety.
