  • In this vote, we had multiple athletes that were unanimous selections. On the offensive side, we had App State tailback Jalin Moore and Troy receiver Emanuel Thompson. On defense, defending Player of the Year Ja’Von Rolland-Jones checks in as well as corner Clifton Duck who makes an appearance as a sophomore.
  • Appalachian State and Troy led the way by each landing seven players on the first-team. Arkansas State was not far behind with five. There were four teams (Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, New Mexico State, South Alabama) who did not have any players on the first-team.
  • UL-Lafayette dominated the kicking game as both their kicker and punter were represented. The kicking game should be a solid strength for the Cajuns this fall.
