Wallace Named Honorable Mention All-American by Hansen's Gazette

Feb. 11th, 2015

Harlon Hill Trophy winning quarterback Jason Vander Laan of Ferris State and Gene Upshaw Award winning defensive end Darius Allen of NCAA Division II national champion Colorado State-Pueblo headline a talented 2014 Don Hansen NCAA Division II All-America Team. Vander Laan, who captured the Harlon Hill Trophy as the Division II National Player of the Year honors, garnered Don Hansen Offensive Player of the Year accolades.

Urbana University junior linebacker D'Gary Wallace (Dayton, Ohio/Dunbar HS) was the lone Blue Knight named to the All-American teams. He picked up an Honorable Mention nod. Wallace previously earned First Team All-Super Region One honors from Don Hansen. This past fall, Wallace led the MEC in tackles, finishing with 115 in 11 games. His 68 solo stops were also a league-best and Wallace finished 2nd in tackles for a loss (18.5) and 6th in sacks (6.5). It's the second straight season Wallace has earned First Team All-MEC honors. His 40.5 tackles for loss through three seasons at UU already place him 5th all-time amongst Blue Knights. Read More
