CLEVELAND – South Dakota State University tight end Dallas Goedert was named Thursday to the 2017 Division I Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association All-America Team. It marks the second year in a row Goedert has earned a spot on the 11-member team.
A senior from Britton, Goedert has been the Jackrabbits’ leading receiver for the second consecutive year with 67 receptions for 1,068 yards and six touchdowns through 13 games. His receiving yardage total leads all Division I tight ends – both FBS and FCS – as he has topped the 100-yard mark six times. Twice this season Goedert has recorded 11 catches in a game.
Earlier this week, Goedert also was named a first-team selection to the Associated Press FCS All-America Team. The FCS ADA All-America Team is selected in coordination with the 13 FCS conference offices. The fifth annual award recognizes the top student-athletes from FCS institutions at 11 different positions. The 2017 class includes student-athletes from 11 different institutions, representing six different conferences. Voting was conducted by a national panel, consisting of media and sports information directors.
