Cards Clean Up on the All-MAC Teams

MACLost in the “Will He or Won’t He?!” Lembogasm going on in the fanbase the last couple days was the fact that the Fighting Football Cardinals decimated the rest of the conference in the season ending All-MAC teams. The MAC announced yesterday the honors and the Cards led the conference with 15 names landing on the lists, though no Cardinal was awarded one of the premier type of season-long awards (Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, etc.). Your honored Cardinals:

First team
Offensive Linemen – Jordan Hansel
Tight End – Zane Fakes
Wide Receiver – Willie Snead
Down Lineman – Jonathan Newsome

Second team
Quarterback – Keith Wenning
Running Back – Jahwan Edwards
Inside Linebacker – Ben Ingle
Down Lineman – Nate Ollie
Defensive Back – Jeff Garrett
Kickoff Return Specialist – Jamill Smith

Third team
Center – Jacob Richard
Wide Receiver – Jordan Williams
Wide Receiver – Jamill Smith
Placekicker – Scott Secor
Punt Return Specialist – Jamill Smith

The things I think deserve at least a cursory grumble is Nathan Ollie not landing on the All-MAC 1st team, as well as Quake Edwards. Granted. David Fluellen from Toledo and Brandon Oliver from Buffalo are solid options, I just think Quake did more to deserve the honor this season. Perhaps the biggest qualm I have is Jordan Williams not landing a second-team selection but will own that’s probably just my bias toward Jordan. Though irksome, in reality the things mentioned are me just splitting hairs. Jamill Smith hit the trifecta of punt return, kick return, and wide receiver, so that makes up a bit for the mistakes above. Congrats to the Cards on the honors they well deserved, and now you may return to your worrying, hand-wringing, and fretting about flight plans. If you’d like to see the all conference teams in their entirety and see first hand some more fawning over of Jordan Lynch and Rod Carey, you can check it out here.
