HEIDELBERG FB: Eleven Tabbed All-OAC, Hallett Named Coach of the Year

More news about: Heidelberg

TIFFIN, Ohio—Sophomore running back Germany Woods (Cleveland/Lakewood St. Edward) and junior offensive lineman Quentin Rembert (Garfield Heights) were named first-team All-Ohio Athletic Conference and fifth-year head coach Mike Hallett was selected OAC Coach of the Year by his peers to highlight the 2011 All-OAC football teams and special awards, announced today by the league office. Heidelberg University garnered 11 selections to rank third in the conference.

Senior offensive lineman Derrick Arbogast (Tiffin/Calvert), sophomore running back/kick returner Cartel Brooks (Kokomo, Ind./Galion), junior kicker Dan Kilger (Novi, Mich./Novi), junior defensive lineman Stephen Fejedelem (Ravenna), senior defensive lineman Jake Mitchell (Wyandotte, Mich./Wyandotte), senior linebacker Andy Fadenholz (Grafton/Keystone) and senior cornerback Tony Gordon (Euclid) earned second-team honors.

Senior offensive lineman Cassady Willford (Rutland/Meigs) and junior linebacker Craig Sykes (Centerburg) received honorable mention.

Woods, a second-team selection a year ago, and Brooks combined for 2,180 of the team's 2,805 rushing yards. Woods led the OAC and set the school single-season record with 1,421 yards—tallying 100 yards in eight of 10 games—and scored 11 touchdowns. Brooks notched four 100-yard outings of his own and totaled 759 yards—fourth in the league—and scored seven times. Brooks also averaged 37.9 yards per kickoff return and returned three kicks for scores.

Rembert, Arbogast, an honorable mention pick a season ago, and Willford anchored an offensive line that paved the way for 4,572 yards of total offense, just 26 yards shy of the single-season school record set a year ago, on a team that averaged 35.4 points per game. In addition, Student Prince quarterbacks were sacked just nine times to tie for a league best.

Kilger converted nine-of-13 field goal attempts, including a long of 39-yards, made 41-of-43 extra points, averaged 57.1 yards per kickoff with five touchbacks, and ranked third in the OAC with 68 points.

Fejedelem made 46 tackles, including six for loss, recorded three sacks and forced two fumbles to lead the defensive front, and returned a fumble 30 yards for a TD in the last game of the season. Mitchell notched 39 stops, including eight for loss, and tallied 3.5 sacks.

Fadenholz, an honorable mention selection a year ago, ranked third on the team with 62 tackles and second in the OAC in both TFL (14) and sacks (9.5). Sykes led the team and was seventh in the league with 88 tackles, tallied 10 TFL and 4.5 sacks, forced two fumbles and recovered another, and tied for third in the league with four interceptions.

Gordon made 45 tackles, intercepted two passes and was sixth in the OAC with 10 passes defended. He also returned a fumble 50 yards for a TD in the team's last game.

Hallett, who earned the coach of the year nod in his first season at Heidelberg in 2007, led the Student Princes to an 8-2 record—the school's best mark since 1993—and their first winning season since 1994. Hallett inherited a program that went 15-85 during the 10-year period (1997-2006) prior to his arrival. Heidelberg's 11 All-OAC picks are the most under Hallett's guidance.

Despite losing Arbogast, Mitchell, Fadenholz, Gordon and Willford to graduation, the Berg returns all its skill position players and nine defensive starters for the 2012 season.
