Five Great Danes on NCAA I-AA Mid-Major All-America Football Squad


Westmont, Ill. – University at Albany’s Colin Disch has been selected the 2005 Don Hansen’s Football Gazette NCAA I-AA Mid-Major Linebacker of the Year as announced today by the national publication. Disch, a sophomore, and offensive guard Aaron Kimball were named to the All-America first team.


Disch, who recently was named to The Sports Network’s I-AA Mid-Major All-America squad, reached the 100-tackle mark for the second straight season with 112. He ranks 27th nationally in that category. Disch, who added 15 tackles for a loss and 4.5 sacks, was voted the Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year by the league’s coaches. He made the Football Gazette All-America first team for the second consecutive season.


"Colin Disch is highly respected by the players, coaches and staff," said UAlbany coach Bob Ford, whose team won five of its last six games to finish with a 5-6 record. "He has the unique ability that all the great linebackers have of getting to the football. He can come underneath the block or over the top with his superior quickness."


Kimball, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound right guard, was a first-team All-NEC selection. He blocked for an offense that improved over the second half of the season, and averaged 173.7 rushing yards and 280.0 yards in total offense against conference opponents. Kimball appeared in 45 games and earned four varsity letters during his career.


Jacob Anderson, a 6-foot-6, 300-pound left tackle, and Michael Dungey, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound defensive tackle, were each selected to the Football Gazette All-America second team. Brian Becker received honorable mention recognition. The senior inside linebacker accounted for 101 tackles, four pass break-ups and one interception. He led a defense that is ranked among the NCAA I-AA leaders in rushing defense (11th), scoring defense (12th) and total defense (15th).
