He also has averaged 34.7 yards per kickoff return with one touchdown and averaged 11.8 yards per punt return while garnering MIAA Special Teams Player of the Year honors for a second straight year.

Dreiling has made a team-leading 107 tackles with 9.5 tackles-for-loss, an interception, four pass breakups and two forcd fumbles. The Hutchinson/Victoria, Kan., native earned first-team All-MIAA honors for a third straight season.

Holland has anchored an offensive line that has helped the Gorillas average 42.5 points and 483.8 total yards per game. The Neosho, Mo., native is a two-time first-team All-MIAA selection.

Seybold, Jr., a Lincoln, Neb., native, has carried the ball 185 times for 1,249 yards and 21 touchdowns, averaging 6.8 yards per carry and 113.5 yards per game. Seybold was a first-team All-MIAA selection.

First team all-region honorees are now eligible for Daktronics, Inc. Division II Football All-American selection. The announcement of those All-American teams is expected on December 17th, preceding the NCAA Division II Football Championship, which takes place Dec. 21 in Florence, Ala.
