Honors Pour In for Mountain Hawks

With the release this week of the big All-American lists, several Mountain Hawks have showed up with honorable mentions. Of course, the biggest honor remains for these 2008 Mountain Hawks - no, I'm not talking about the trophies at the annual awards dinner, but the coveted LFN Hawks of the Year unveiled on this site.

Here's the list of the honorees. Congratulations to all the winners!

FCSADA Academic All-Star Team: Senior DB Brendan VanAckeren (3.48 GPA)

College Sporting News "Fabulous Fifty"
Honorable Mention: Senior DB Quadir Carter

The Sports Network All-American Team Honorable Mention: Senior DL Brian Jackson, Senior LB Tim Diamond, Senior P/K Jason Leo

How Jason Leo even gets a mention as an All American is amazing... I can see a little for punting but he used that goofy rugby style kicks which by the end of the season teams got to and he had problems.. And his placekicking cost us games... I hope the young kid who kicked some will stick with the program and improve... It shows that these All American lists at the FCS level are nothing more than PR as people who select them have nothing but stats and PR to guide them... At least on the major ( FBS) level, players have been on TV so selectors can have actually seen them play...

Like Sedale, Leo showed much more talent and potential as a frosh and soph. By their senior years I couldn't wait until they graduated. Horrible.
