Freshman return specialist/wide receiver Dakota Nelson (Fairland, Ind.) highlighted the Manchester University selections on the 2013 all-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference honor teams released Nov. 20.

Nelson was tabbed the league's Rookie of the Year. He wrapped up the season averaging better than 20 yards per kickoff returns (22.8) and just under the same number in punt returns (18.2) while hauling in 56 catches for 582 yards and four touchdowns, His reception total rank sixth best all-time in single-season efforts. The Black and Gold's first-year standout was also a first teamer in the returners' section and a second team honoree amongst the receivers.

Senior offensive lineman Eric Courter (Carmel, Ind.) and senior linebacker Dylin Kennedy (North Manchester, Ind.) were selected to the first team, while senior offensive linemen Adam Cantwell (Elkhart, Ind.) and Cody Larimore (Walton, Ind.), senior defensive lineman Scott Barry (Plymouth, Ind.), senior linebacker Zach Dashner (South Bend, Ind.) and sophomore defensive back Taylor Anglemeyer (Wakarusa, Ind.) were placed on the second team. Senior quarterback Nick Williams (Fort Wayne, Ind.) gained honorable mention honors, and senior linebacker Nick Miller (Huntington, Ind.) was named to the Sportsmanship squad.

MU's offensive line trio of Courter, Cantwell and Larimore paved the way for an offense that averaged better than 300 yards (303.1) and just under 24 points (23.9) per game. Cantwell and Courter each earned their second all-league honors. Kennedy topped the defense with 94 tackles, eight and a half which came for opponent losses, en route to joining the 200-career tackle club. Anglemeyer, Barry and Dashner also played key roles for the Black and Gold defense. Anglemeyer was fourth in tackles (45), second in interceptions (three) and led the way in pass break-ups (13), while Barry was among the top five in sacks (two), and Dashner led the team and conference with six interceptions and was second for MU in tackles (74). Dashner joined Cantwell and Courter as a two-time honoree.
