Baynard Headlines Six Wolverines Named to D3football.com All-Region Teams

DOVER, Del. The Wesley College Football team placed six Wolverines among the D3football.com All-Region Selections, led by senior running back Jamar Baynard who earned First Team All-Region honors.

Baynard was Wesley's only first team selection, named the feature back of the All East Region First Team offense. Offensive tackle Matt Gono and wide receiver Bryce Shade each were named to the All-Region Second Team offense while center Austin Eagle was named Third Team All-Region. On defense, both defensive end Isaiah Ingram and defensive back Andre Connally were named Third Team All-Region as well.

Baynard led the New Jersey Athletic Conference in rushing touchdowns with 17 on the season. His 1,251 rushing yards on the season ranked second in the conference as well. The running back broke Wesley's all-time career rushing touchdowns record, finishing his career with 48 total rushing touchdowns across four years.

 

Gono and Eagle are both repeat honorees among the All-Region team. Both were named All-Region selections last season as well. The offensive linemen made up two-fifths of the Wolverine line that paved the way for 444.8 yards of offense pre game and 38.0 points per contest as well. The team ranked among the nation's top 50 in both categories.

 


Bryce Shade was featured on the All-Region team for the second straight year. Shade recorded a league-leading 1,058 receiving yards on the season and pulled in 10 receiving touchdowns. The senior wideout averaged 88.2 yards receiving per game and 16.8 yards per reception. The Erial, N.J. native finished with 112.0 all-purpose yards per game as well.

 

 

Junior Isaiah Ingram was a force on the Wesley defensive line this season, recording 40 total tackles on the season, including 6.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss on the year. The defensive end added 4 forced fumbles and a pass breakup to his impressive resume and was a feared pass rusher within the NJAC this season.

 

 

Senior defensive back Andre Connally finished the season with 72 tackles, six tackles for loss, a forced fumble, three interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns. Connally was the anchor of the Wesley secondary, playing both safety and cornerback during the season. He recorded six tackles and an interception that was returned for a touchdown in the NCAA Tournament Second Round game against John Carroll.

 

This is the 11th consecutive season that the Wolverines have placed at least four team members on the D3football.com All-Region team. Every year since 2006 Wesley has placed at least four student-athletes on the All-Region squad.
