Fukumoto Leads Four Pacific Selections To All-NWC Football Team

More news about: Pacific

FOREST GROVE, Ore. – Four players who played key roles in the return of the Pacific University football program have been recognized by the league's coaches with selections to the 2010 All-Northwest Conference Football Team, which was released on Tuesday. 

Wide receiver Jordan Fukumoto (Fr., Mililani, Hawaii) led Pacific's selections by being named to the league's second team.  Linebacker Josh Beck (Sr., Prosser, Wash.), offensive lineman Sean Dalton (Fr., San Jose, Calif.) and place kicker Jon Lee (Sr., Kahalu'u, Hawaii) all received honorable mention selections.

"It's a tremendous honor for these young men to be recognized as all-conference performers," said Pacific Head Coach Keith Buckley.  "The honor is a testament to their hard work and dedication to the building of our young football program."

Fukumoto finished as the top target for Pacific quarterbacks, leading the Boxers and sixth in the NWC with a 67 yards per game average.  He also ranked 10th in the NWC with a 3.33 receptions per game average.  Fukumoto finished with 603 yards and a 20.1 yards per carry average to along with a team-high six touchdowns and 36 points scored.  He capped the season with 180 yards on seven catches and three touchdowns in the Boxers' 44-42 season ending loss to Menlo on Nov. 13.

"Jordan very quickly has built a reputation as one of the top receivers in the conference," Buckley said.  "His performance in the final game confirmed that status and we look forward to his continued growth in all aspects of his game over the coming years."

Beck chose to finish his college career at Pacific after three years at Occidental and finished the season as one of the team's top defensive players.  He finished fourth for the Boxers in total tackles with 24.5 (19 solo, 11 assist), which included 5.5 tackles for loss.  Like Fukumoto, Beck saved his best day for last, coming up with 6.5 tackles against Menlo.  Beck also had 5.5 tackles, including 1.5 for loss and half a sack at Puget Sound on Oct. 30.

Dalton proved to be a relied upon member of the offensive line, starting all nine games for the Boxers at left tackle.  Dalton finished with credit for 0.5 tackles, with the tackle coming at Menlo.

Lee, a converted soccer player, proved to be one of the top kickers in the NWC and one of best in the nation at the Division III level.  He led the NWC by hitting 7 of 8 field goals and averaging 0.78 field goals per game, which tied him for 64th among Division III kickers.  He hit 14 of 17 PAT attempts and finished second for the Boxers in scoring with 35 points.  He hit his long field goal of 42 yards twice, against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps on Sept. 18 and against Pacific Lutheran on Nov. 6.

Lee also earned the distinction of scoring the first points of the reinstated program against Puget Sound on Sept. 4, connecting on a 26-yard field goal in which the ball laid on the ground horizontally due to a bad snap.  Lee went 4 for 4 in his first ever football game, earning NWC Football Special Teams Student-Athlete of the Week in the process.
