10 Greyhounds picked for All-KJCCC team

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Although the team itself was ineligible for post-season play, the Jayhawk Conference honored 10 members of Fort Scott Community College's football team with spots on the All-Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference team.

None of Fort Scott's players were chosen to the First Team. Tight end Brannon Green, offensive guard Ryan Kincaid and running back Lucas Lundy, all sophomores, were picked for the Second Team. Honorable Mention nods went to freshman defensive end Robert McNeil and sophomore safety Jeremiah Plowden on defense, sophomore center Dillon Roberts, sophomore guard Kevin Park and freshman fullback Robert Rooks on offense, and sophomore kicker Drew Russell and freshman return specialist Cameron Cole on special teams.

Green has signed with the University of Connecticut for next season. Lundy finished third in the conference in rushing with an average of 81.4 yards per game (651 total) and 6 touchdowns. Russell was third in the conference in kick scoring with 3.3 points per game, making 17 extra points and three field goals. Cole was seventh in the conference in kickoff returns, averaging 21.1 yards per return and scoring one touchdown.

One notable omission is that of the conference's leading rusher, sophomore Martese Jackson, who was the only player in the conference to rush for more than 1,000 yards this season. The First Team running backs were Butler's Jasper Sanders and Coffeyville's Jamarius Green, fifth and sixth in the conference in rushing. The other Second Team back was Hutchinson's Deveon Dinwiddie, who was fourth in the conference. The Honorable Mention running backs were James Baker of Independence, who was seventh, Derrick Thomas of Butler, who was ninth, and Latavious Willis of Highland, who wasn't one of the conference's top 15 rushers. Indeed, Highland averaged fewer rushing yards per game as a team (103.6) than Jackson did by himself (136.4).
