Seven Yeomen Get Honored by the League

More news about: Oberlin

Westlake, Ohio – The Oberlin College football team had seven players earn All-NCAC accolades, the league office announced on Monday morning.

Those earning All-NCAC Second-Team honors are center Chris Pottmeyer, linebacker Dane Stritt, defensive back David Kalgren and punter Cory Kidd.

All-NCAC Honorable-Mention recognition went to tight end Danny Enright, offensive lineman Mike Law and defensive lineman Clay Eaton.

Pottmeyer, a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, started in all 40 games in his illustrious four-year career. A honorable-mention selection a season ago, Pottmeyer
has been a part of some of the greatest offensives in school history and protected two of Oberlin's all-time greats in all-time passing leader Greg Mangan and all-time rushing leader R.V. Carroll.

Stritt, who played in all 10 games, finished second on the team with 68 total tackles and tied for second in tackles for a loss (4.5) and pass break-ups (5).

After spending last season at quarterback, Kalgren returned to his natural possession of defensive back and was simply sensational. The native of Curwensville, Pennsylvania led the team with 75 tackles and tied for the team high with four interceptions. His nine total passes defended tied for third best in the league.

Kidd, a native of nearby Wellington, Ohio, set the school record for putting average in a season with a mark of 40.6 yards per kick, which was also second best in the NCAC. He also had the best single-game performance in Yeomen history with a 48.8 average against The College of Wooster. Kidd had a league-high 19 punts inside the 20 and also tied for an NCAC-best nine punts over 50-yards –including a league-long 73-yarder in the season finale against Allegheny.

Enright led all tight ends in the North Coast in yards per game (49) and touchdowns (5). The Novi, Michigan, native caught at least one pass in every game this season other than the season opener at Kenyon. He had a career-effort with seven catches, 127 yards and a score in Oberlin's 47-21 win over Hiram (Sept. 25).

Like Pottmeyer, Law has been a key part of some of the greatest offensive units in OC history. This season he helped the Yeomen accumulate 3,438 yards, which is the third highest total in school history.

Eaton was nemesis to opposing offensives all season long. He finished the year with 39 tackles, but led the Yeomen in tackles for a loss (9) and sacks (5.5). He also had one forced fumble; a safety and two pass break-ups.

The Yeomen will have some time off before being its non-traditional spring season.
