Athletics - posted on 1/17/2007
Two Lakeland College football players have been named to the Don Hansen National Weekly Football Gazette 2006 NCAA Division III North All-Region Team.
Junior wide receiver MacArthur White (Zion, Ill./Zion Benton) earned honorable mention offense and sophomore defensive lineman Stephan Johnson (Evanston, Ill./Evanston Township) was named Honorable Mention Defense. The Football Gazette's All-America team is expected to be announced later this week.
"This is a great accomplishment to have members of our team to get national recognition," said head coach Jim Zebrowski. "It is just a testament to the strength of our football program. With three underclassmen earning all region honors including John Wagner who was D3football.com North All-Region Team's third team defense, it's exciting because we know they'll all be back next year."
It's the latest in a long list of awards for White who was named co-Illini-
Badger Football Conference Receiver of the Year and first team wide receiver. He led the league in receptions and receiving yards per game, averaging 5.7 receptions for an average of 73.8 yards per game. He was also fourth in the conference in all-purpose yards, averaging 103.3 per game. White, who was honorable mention all-IBFC last season, also earned IBFC Offensive Player of the Week honors once this season.
Johnson was also named first team All-IBFC defensive lineman this season. He finished second in the conference in sacks with nine and second in the conference in tackles for a loss, (1.55 TFL per game).
