NEC Has STATS All-Americans on Offense, Defense and Special Teams

A trio of Northeast Conference athletes earned spots on the 2017 STATS FCS All-America Third Team.

Duquesne offensive guard Ben Huss earned an All-America nod from STATS for the second year in a row. The four-time all-NEC lineman started all 11 games in 2017, running his career total to 44 starts. He was the leader up front for an offense that produced a league-high 6.1 yards per play. Huss also received All-America honors from the Associated Press, earning a place on the AP’s Second Team Offense.

Saint Francis senior cornerback Malik Duncan and Bryant sophomore kick returner Jean Constant are first-time STATS All-Americans. The former was a finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award after making 11 starts for the nation’s second-ranked defense in terms of pass efficiency rating. Constant, who ranked second overall amongst FCS all-purpose yards leaders, averaged 27.5 yards per kickoff return – the highest mark in the nation amongst players with at least 25 return attempts.
