Midwestern State seniors Keidrick Jackson and Neiko Conway have chalked up recognition on the first Division II All-America team announced this season.

The Beyond Sports Network announced its 2013 All-America Teams on Thursday with Jackson selected to the BSN third team and Conway tabbed as honorable mention.

Jackson, the 5-9, 210 pound senior from Arlington, Texas/Bowie who once again led MSU and the Lone Star Conference in rushing with 1,177 yards to average 117.7 yards a contest, collected the third team honor after receiving honorable mention honors from the website last season.

With an MSU record 4,004 career yards, Jackson is just the eighth player to rush for 4,000 yards in the 81 year history of the Lone Star Conference. Jackson also led MSU and the LSC with 15 touchdowns in 2013, while ending second in the league in scoring with 90 points. He holds MSU career records of 62 touchdowns and 372 points.

The 2013 LSC Offensive Back of the Year and three-time first-team All-LSC selection was also named Daktronics first-team All-Super Region 4 for the third straight season. It's the third season for Jackson to earn All-America team recognition.

Conway, a 5-10, 185 pound senior cornerback from Houston, Texas/Lamar received his first All-America honor with the selection.

Conway led the MSU and the LSC with five interceptions with 131 yards in returns. He finished his career with 15 interceptions (second in MSU history) and holds the Midwestern State record with 362 career interception return yards. He ranked fourth on the team with 48 total tackles (4.8 per game) in 2013 and led the team with nine pass breakups.

The Mustangs were 7-3 in 2013.
