My 10 yr old avocado tree crashed w/ our cold winter. We cut it down and it is now coming out at the roots. What do you think?

Sounds like the roots remained healthy inspite of the tragedy. If you want to encourage one of the shoots to grow into a new avocado tree you only need to prune out all but the single largest, most vigorous sucker. It will grow into a good sized tree in 4-5 years.
