NSU football players receive All-Region honors

TAHLEQUAH — Joel Rockmore and Langston Jones were both named to the 2012 Don Hansen All-Super Region Three Third Team, the committee announced Wednesday.

Langston Jones led the MIAA and was 10th in the nation with 11.0 tackles per game. He also picked up 11 tackles for loss this season, two sacks and an interception.

Rockmore finished as the second-leading rusher in the league and 23rd in the NCAA at 113.8 yards per game. He was also 22nd in the nation and fifth in the league at 151.4 all-purpose yards a game.

This all came after he rushed for just 13 yards in the season opener and missed the second game of the season due to injury. He recorded six 100-yard rushing performances in the final eight games of the season.

Both individuals were also named to the All-MIAA Second Team in November.

The Don Hansen team carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988.  Don Hansen’s Football Gazette began selecting Division II All-Region squads in 2003.

The first-team and second-team All-Region selections advance to a national ballot from which the 2012 Don Hansen NCAA Division II All-America team will be named later this month.

Great America Conference champion Henderson State University led the way with eight honorees, while NCAA Division II playoff participants University of Minnesota-Duluth and Northwest Missouri State University had seven honorees apiece. Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference champion and national semifinalist Minnesota State University and Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association champion Missouri Western State University received six selections apiece.

A total of 103 players earned some form of Don Hansen All-Super Region Three honors.  Players from 38 of the 46 football-playing schools in Super Region Three earned All-Region accolades.
