MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Washington and Lee placed three players on the D3Football.com All-South Region football team that was announced on Monday evening.
Junior offensive tackle Michael LaSala (Wilton, Conn. / Wilton) was named to the first team, senior center Raymond Monasterski (Roswell, Ga. / Westminster) was selected to the second team and sophomore guard Chris Osier (Lebanon, Tenn. / Lebanon) was placed on the third team.
LaSala adds the honor to a list that already includes First Team All-ODAC honors and Richmond Touchdown Club College Division Offensive Lineman of the Year accolades. He started all 11 games on the line and helped the Generals lead all of college football in rushing yards with an average of 433.9 per game.
Monasterski was a Second Team All-ODAC and First Team Academic All-District honoree this fall. He played in all 11 games and finished his career tied for the most games played (42) in program history. He was a member of an offensive line that paved the way to school records for rushing yards (4,773), total offense (5,439) and points scored (417) in a season.
Osier was a First Team All-ODAC selection after starting all 11 games at guard this season. He helped the Generals produce the three best single-game rushing performances in Old Dominion Athletic Conference history. W&L rushed for a school-record 649 yards in a season-opening 63-35 win over Averett, and added 508 rushing yards against Emory & Henry and 506 rushing yards against Bridgewater.
The three all-region selections are tied for the most in a season in school history and are the most since the 2012 campaign.
Guilford senior quarterback Matt Pawlowski was named the South Region Offensive Player of the Year, while Mary Hardin-Baylor junior defensive end Teidrick Smith was chosen as the Defensive Player of the Year. Thomas More Head Coach Regis Scafe was named the Coach of the Year.
Washington and Lee finished the 2015 season with a school-record 10 wins (10-1). The Generals produced the first undefeated regular season in 54 years and claimed their third ODAC title in six seasons. W&L's season ended in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, falling to Thomas More, 51-21.
