Texas State junior guard D.J. Hall was surprised to learn Wednesday afternoon that he was named a Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America third team offensive lineman by the Associated Press (AP).
“This is certainly a pleasant and unexpected surprise,” Hall said. “I worked hard this season and this just motivates me to work even harder next year.”
Despite playing with an ankle injury for most of the season, Hall played in all 11 Texas State games and helped anchor an offensive line that helped the Bobcats average 334.5 yards and 24.8 points per game last season.
Hall also was named to the All-Southland Conference first team for the second straight year by the Southland Conference coaches and sports information directors. He is a three-time all-conference performer after earning second-team honors as a freshman.
Stephen. F. Austin (SFA) quarterback Jeremy Moses, who leads the nation in yards passing (3,998) and touchdown passes (34), was selected as the AP’s first team quarterback.
The Southland Conference was lightly represented on the AP teams. Besides Moses, SFA placed three other players, with sophomore Gralyn Crawford named as the all-purpose player for the first team offense, senior Kenneth Charles named to the third team defensive line and senior linebacker Jabara Williams named to the third team as a linebacker.
The only other Southland Conference player on the AP team was Northwestern State senior Michael Booker, who was named to the second team offensive line.Email | Print
