The duo of junior quarterback Dalton Holst (Gillette, Wyo.) and senior wide receiver Tevon Wright (Miami, Fla.) made the Second Team after both broke single-season school records at their respective positions. Holst set new CSC records with his 3,119 passing yards and 33 touchdowns, while Wright’s 16 receiving touchdowns are a new school mark as well.
On the Third Team Offense, sophomore running back Elijah Myles (Hawthorne, Calif.) was joined by junior offensive lineman Justin Calderon (Levitttown, N.Y.) and senior blocker Jared Maciejczak (Box Elder, S.D.). Together with the rest of the offensive line, the trio produced more than 100 rushing yards per game at a clip of 5.4 per carry. Myles’ per-game average was No. 17 in NCAA Division II.
