WICHITA FALLS, Texas -- Midwestern State senior center Shadow Stokes garnered one more All America honor Tuesday earning second team D2Football.com honors.
Stokes, a senior from Kilgore, became the fourth offensive lineman in MSU history to repeat as a Daktronics all-region selection last month joining All-Americans Tony Burson (2006, 2007), Amini Silatolu (2010, 2011) and Ken Van Heule (2011, 2012) as Mustangs to achieve the feat.
Stokes is a two-time All-Lone Star Conference performer who also became the third MSU offensive lineman to garner LSC Offensive Lineman of the Year honors in the last five seasons last month.
He was tabbed to the All-Super Region Four's second team by Daktronics and Don Hansen's Football Gazette in 2013 and was a Beyond Sports Network all-region pick in 2014.
The 6-3, 290-pounder anchored an offensive line which paved the way for NCAA Division II's ninth best rushing attack (274.5 yards per game) as the Mustangs also ranked 14th in total offense churning out 493.7 yards per game.
Interestingly, three former Midwestern State student-athletes earned All America honors -- all at the wide receiver position.
Henderson State's Darius Davis (56 rec., 1,261 yards, 18 TD) and Texas A&M-Commerce's Vernon Johnson (77 rec., 1,258 yards, 12 TD) earned first-team honors while Texas A&M-Commerce's Ricky Collins (71 rec., 1,187 yards, 14 TD) was named to the second team.
