Jefferson Leads The Way

The college football season is at its midpoint and various publications are handing out midseason awards.

Most notable for the Pack was Monday's release of the Midseason All-America Team, that featured Nevada junior running back Stefphon Jefferson as a first-team All-America selection.

The Wolf Pack also had 16 selections on the Midseason All-Mountain West Team that was produced by Phil Steele's College Football publication.

Khalid Wooten was selected as the top punt returner and a first-team cornerback on the publication's Midseason All-Mountain West team. Nevada had 10 selections - nine players with Wooten on there twice - on the first team with 16 selections overall.

Five members of the Union were honored, including three on the first team in tackle Jeff Nady, guard Chris Barker and tight end Zach Sudfeld. Tackle Joel Bitonio was on the second team and center Matt Galas was named to the third team.

Wide receiver Brandon Wimberly and Stefphon Jefferson were also represented on the first-team offense. Sophomore Brock Hekking joined Wooten and safety Duke Williams on the first-team defense. And kicker Allen Hardison was also selected to the first team.

Joining Bitonio on the second team were quarterback Cody Fajardo and linebacker Albert Rosette.
