Senior defensive tackle Juan Pickett, tight end Daniel Youssif and center Jordan Ritchey were selected for the honor as second team members, and they now advance to the national ballot, where they will receive consideration for spots on the Don Hansen Division II All-American Team.
The three UWG players were All-Gulf South Conference First Team selections, and Youssif was also tabbed as a first team member of the Daktronics All-Super Region 2 squad, which is voted on by sports information directors throughout the region.
The Don Hansen team carried out the legacy of longtime small college football advocate Don Hansen, who died at age 75 in 2010. Hansen started and published Don Hansen’s Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988. The publication has selected all-region teams each season since 2003.
