Two special team members, punter Rhys Felton (so.) and punt-returner Jared Mayernik (jr.) were named to the second team and offensive lineman Levi Coughlin (sr.) was named to the third team.

Felton averaged a stellar 44 yards per punt and Mayernik averaged 15.3 yards per return including two touchdown returns.
