2000 Preseason All-Americans

Who's going to be a force to be reckoned with? It's probably no surprise that consensus preseason No. 1 Mount Union places the most players on our squad, with three. Quarterback Gary Smeck, wideout Adam Marino and offensive lineman Jason Gerber hope to help lead the Purple Raiders back to the Stagg Bowl.
