TACOMA, Washington – Six Puget Sound football student-athletes earned All-Northwest Conference honors, the league announced Monday, four of whom were named to the All-NWC Second Team.
Senior wide receiver Dustin Harrison, junior offensive lineman Zach Losack, and sophomore defensive backs Jason Clayton and Zackary Teats earned Second Team honors. Senior quarterback Tanner Diebold and junior defensive end Todd Blakely were named Honorable Mentions.
Harrison finished the season as the NWC leader in both receptions (66) and receiving yards per game (74.8). He concluded the 2017 campaign by matching a single-game career-high 14 receptions against George Fox (Nov. 11), and totaled at least 90 receiving yards in four games this fall.
Losack helped lead an offensive attack that averaged 347.2 yards per game – third in the NWC. Puget Sound's 891 rushing yards this season is the program's highest total since the 2009 season.
Clayton and Teats anchored a passing defense that allowed less than 200 passing yards per game (198.2). Clayton tied for second in the NWC with three interceptions, and Teats finished the season with a pair of picks. Clayton was named the NWC Student-Athlete of the Week for defense following the Loggers' win over Willamette (Oct. 28).
Blakely finished the season with 42 tackles, 10 of which were behind the line of scrimmage. He also recorded two sacks, recovered a fumble, and forced a fumble. Diebold ranked second in the NWC for both passing yards (2,162) and completions (185). Blakely and Diebold both earned NWC Student-Athlete of the Week following the Loggers' win over Occidental early in the season (Sept. 9).
