QUICK LINK: 2013 All-Northwest Conference Football Team

FOREST GROVE – Repeat first team honors for offensive lineman Sean Dalton (Sr., San Jose, Calif.) and wide receiver Jordan Fukumoto (Jr., Mililani, Hawaii) lead 16 Pacific selections to the 2013 All-Northwest Conference Football Team.
 
The all-star team, selected by the leagues coaches, was announced Tuesday.  Dalton was named to the first team for the second consecutive season while Fukumoto, a 2011 first team selection, returned after missing most of the 2012 season due to injury.
 
The pair joins five second team selections and nine players named as honorable mentions.  Pacific's second teamers include kicker Moses Villareal-Gomez (Jr., Stockton, Calif.), defensive linemen Sean Bangs (Sr., Portland, Ore.) and Devin Lagorio (Sr., Stockton, Calif.), cornerback Brandon Harms (Jr., Canby, Ore.) and safety Bryan Mills (Sr., Imbler, Ore.).
 
Pacific's honorable mention list includes quarterbacks T.C. Campbell (Jr., Kaimuki, Hawaii) and P.J. Minaya (Wahiawa, Hawaii), running backs Deven McKinney (Jr., Spanaway, Wash.) and Gunther Schultze (Sr., Bellflower, Calif.), wide receiver Jakob Lawrence (Jr., Sherwood, Ore.), punter Aaron Koford (Sr., Wilsonville, Ore.), linebacker Tim Hastie (Sr., Auberry, Calif.) and defensive lineman Alex Willeford (Jr., Keizer, Ore.).
 
"Pacific football has made great strides in our first four years of competition," said Pacific Head Coach Keith Buckley.  "Our improvement as a program has been led by the young men recognized by the opposing coaches in the conference."
 
Dalton anchored a stout Pacific offensive line that protected one of the top passing offenses in Division III.  The Boxers finished ranked No. 12 in Division III in passing efficiency as the line allowed only 1.7 sacks per game.  Dalton finishes his career as a four-time All-NWC selection.  He was also recognized as an honorable mention in 2010 and 2011.
 
"Sean has consistently been one of the top offensive tackles in the conference, protecting out quarterbacks' blind side since day one," Buckley said.  "He will leave Pacific as one of the all-time greats at that position."
 
After missing most of 2012, Fukumoto regained his spot as one of the top wide receivers in the league.  He finished the season ranked fourth in the NWC with 712 receiving yards and an average of 71.2 yards per game, leading the Boxers in both categories.  His 18.7 yards per catch led the league.  His season was topped by a 197-yard performance in Pacific's victory over Occidental on Sept. 14.  He earned NWC Offensive Student-Athlete of the Week and D3Football.com Team of the Week honors with his 197 yards and three touchdowns on seven catches, including a season-long 74-yard reception.
 
"Jordan is one of those players that opposing teams have to plan for each week and, with that focus on him, he still found ways to have a major impact in our success in the fall," Buckley said.  "His athleticism and football intelligence allowed him to be a three-time all-conference player, with the fourth only alluding him due to injury."
 
Villareal-Gomez finished as the conference's top place kicker, earning a repeat Second Team All-NWC selection.  He finished the season leading the NWC with a Pacific season record 11 field goals made and a .690 field goal percentage.  He also finished second in the NWC in points scored (72) and third in point-after attempts made with a school season record 39.  He earned NWC Special Teams Student-Athlete of the Week.  He was honored for a school-record tying eight point-after attempts made against Puget Sound on Oct. 12 and for hitting three field goals against Linfield on Nov. 16.
 
A four-year starter at defensive line, Bangs finished the second leading the Boxers and ranked second in the NWC with eight sacks.  He finished fifth for the Boxers with 42 tackles, including 45 solo efforts, and led the team with 11.5 tackles for loss.  In addition, Bangs ranked 45th among Division III players with an average of 0.8 sacks per game.  Bangs finished with a season-high seven tackles at Menlo on Sept. 21.  His season-high 2.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss came at Pacific Lutheran on Oct. 19.
 
Lagorio was another four-year anchor for the defensive line, finishing sixth for the Boxers with 38 tackles with 2.5 sacks and eight tackles for loss.  He led the Boxers and the NWC once again in blocked kicks, stopping three.  Lagorio's season best effort came at Whitworth on Oct. 5, finishing with six tackles, three tackles for loss and a sack.
 
Harms proved an exceptional two-way threat for the Boxers on defense and special teams.  At cornerback, Harms finished third for the Boxers with 55 tackles and was ninth in the NWC with 40 solo tackles.  He recovered three fumbles, ranking first in the NWC and ranking 41st in Division III.  The league's top punt return man, Harms finished ranked 12th among Division III players with an average of 12.4 yards per return.  He had a season highs of 10 tackles and 71 return yards at Willamette on Nov. 9.  He returned an interception 23 yards for a touchdown against Puget Sound on Oct. 12.
 
Mills completed his Pacific career as a three-time All-NWC selection, earning honorable mention in 2011 and 2012.  Mills tied for the team lead and finished 10th in the NWC with 60 tackles and ranked seventh with 43 solo tackles.  He finished second in the NWC and ranked 64th among Division III players with four interceptions.  Mills posted a season-high 10 tackles against Chicago on Oct. 26 and had two interceptions against Puget Sound on Oct. 12, earning him selection as NWC Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week.
 
Campbell and Minaya combined for a potent one-two punch at quarterback for the Boxers.  A Honorable Mention All-NWC last year, Minaya led the NWC and ranked 28th among Division III quarterbacks with a Pacific season record 64.7 completion percentage.  He also ranked second in the NWC and 18th in Division III with a pass efficiency rating of 159.60 and finished seventh in the NWC with 1,431 yards and an average of 143.1 yards per game. 
 
Campbell, a Honorable Mention All-NWC selection in 2011, finished the season ranked eighth in the NWC with 980 yards and an average of 68 yards per game.  He ranked seventh in the NWC with his eight passing touchdowns.  The duo combined to lead a Pacific offense that ranked 12th in Division III with a team pass efficiency rating of 161.93.
 
Schultze and McKinney led a much-improved Pacific rushing attack that averaged 150.3 yards per game.  Schultze led the Boxers and ranked seventh in the NWC with 516 rushing yards and eighth with an average of 51.6 yards per game.  He posted a season-best 126 yards and scored two touchdowns against Lewis & Clark on Nov. 2.
 
McKinney finished second for the Boxers and ranked ninth in the NWC with 489 rushing yards and an average of 48.9 yards per game.  His seven touchdowns was second for the Boxers and sixth in the NWC.  He finished with a season-best 125 yards on 10 carries and a touchdown against Occidental on Sept. 14.
 
Gietzen was a four-year starter for the Boxers on the offensive line.  He helped anchor a line that allowed just 1.70 sacks per game and an offense that ranked seventh in Division III with an .897 red zone offense scoring percentage.
 
Koford played a critical role in field position game for the Boxers, repeating as an honorable mention.  Koford averaged 37.2 yards per punt and ranked first in the NWC with 15 punts inside the 20-yard line and 13 punts fair caught.  He saved his best performance for last, averaging 46.8 yards per punt with a long of 55 yards in the Nov. 16 game against Linfield.
 
Hastie was also a four-year starter at linebacker and was a First Team All-NWC selection in 2012.  Hastie shared the team lead ranked tied for 10th in the NWC with 60 tackles.  He finished with a season-high of eight tackles on three different occasions, most recently against Linfield on Nov. 16.
 
Willeford came into his own as a linebacker in the Pacific defensive scheme, ranking third in the NWC with 7.5 sacks and 54th among Division III players with 0.8 sacks per game.  He also finished second for the Boxers with 10.5 tackles for loss.  Willeford finished with a season-high six tackles with 2.5 sacks and two tackles for loss at Menlo on Sept. 21.
