A year ago, they were freshmen, today they are HERO Sports All Americans based on the body of work in 2017 — their sophomore seasons. These guys went toe-to-toe with redshirt seniors and didn’t miss a beat.
Take a look at how things turned out for these sophomores, and keep in mind that HERO Sports does take into account the postseason when making these selections, and if we felt a certain position deserved an extra individual based on merit, we added that spot.
I began covering the FCS for HERO Sports in the Summer of 2015 and it was love at first sight. It was the perfect blend of two previous career stops -- the approachability and grounded nature of being around high school athletics combined with the high-end talent and impressive fan bases of big-time college football. After stops in the newspaper world and The Sporting News and PARADE Magazine, I'm happy to be here as HERO Sports' FCS Coordinator.
