2011 Preseason All-MAC and All-Sun Belt Teams!
In today’s blog I will start releasing my All Conference teams starting with the All-MAC and All-Sun Belt teams.
The Sun Belt is led by Troy who has six 1st Team All-Conference players including QB Corey Robinson and DE Jonathan Massaquoi who is one of the best DE’s in the country. Defending champ FIU is well represented with five 1st Team players led by WR/KR T.Y. Hilton and Arkansas St is 3rd with four players.
In the MAC Northern Illinois leads the way with five 1st Team All-Conference players led by QB Chandler Harnish and three OL from a unit that avg 260 rush ypg (6.3) a year ago. Toledo and Ohio are next in line with four 1st Team selections each as UT All-purpose man Eric Page is both 1st Team WR and KR while Ohio has the MAC’s best special teams’ unit and both their kicker Matt Weller and Punter Paul Hershey are 1st Team.
