Ten Gorillas Earn All-MIAA Honors, Brown Named Special Teams Player of the Year

Updated:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ten members of the Pittsburg State University football team earned some form of all-conference honors from the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tuesday (Nov. 13).

Junior wide receiver/return specialist John Brown led the list of honorees. Brown, a candidate for the Harlon Hill Trophy honoring the Division II college football player of the year, earned first-team All-MIAA honors as both a wide receiver and a return specialist. He also garnered MIAA Special Teams Player of the Year honors in voting of the league coaches.

Junior linebacker Nate Dreiling, the 2011 MIAA Defensive Player of the Year, was a repeat selection as a first-team All-MIAA honoree, while junior offensive tackle Cody Holland earned first-team All-MIAA honors after grabbing second-team recognition in 2011.

Senior defensive end Gus Toca was the Gorillas' lone representative on the second-team All-MIAA squad.

Six additional Pitt State players — senior center Aaron Kolich, senior wide receiver Andrew Castaneda, sophomore quarterback Anthony Abenoja, junior defensive end Joe Uzzel, junior safety Keeston Terry and sophomore safety Jason Peete — were named to the honorable mention All-MIAA list.
