Casale's 731 receiving yards rank him second all-time in a single-season, and his 57 catches tie him for first all-time.

The defensive back also registered two pass break ups. Brannon chipped in on offense with 34 rushes for 40 yards and caught the ball once for nine yards. The All-Sportsmanship award is intended to recognize one student-athlete from each institution in every sport that best demonstrates the ideals of the NEWMAC and its Code of Conduct, regardless of his overall performance or statistics for the season.
