More news about: UW-Oshkosh

Center Garrett Porter has been named a NCAA Division III All-American by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA).

Porter joins Nate Wara (2012) as the only first-team All-Americans in school history. A total of 25 players were selected for the 2013 AFCA Coaches' All-America Team.

UW-Oshkosh's offense averaged 32 points, 230 passing yards and 198 rushing yards per game. Porter led a unit that allowed just 11 sacks – fewest in the WIAC. The offensive line helped Cole Myhra rush for 19 touchdowns, ranking 12th in the nation.

The Titans ran for 200+ yards in six games, including 272 against No. 10 UW-Platteville and 264 at UW-Eau Claire. UW-Oshkosh also excelled in the passing game with a completion percentage of 64.6. The Titans threw for 346 yards against Alma College (Mich.), 328 at UW-Stout and 325 at Central College (Iowa).

UW-Oshkosh finished the 2013 campaign with an 8-2 record, tying the second-most wins in program history.

Porter started the final 24 games of his career. During 2012, he helped UW-Oshkosh win a WIAC title and reach the NCAA Division III Final Four.

Johns Hopkins (Md.) offensive lineman Armand Jenifer and Bethel (Minn.) linebacker Seth Mathis gained All-America honors for the second consecutive season.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team every year since 1945. The All-America Committee is made up of three head coaches from each of the AFCA's nine districts.
