Pitman, N.J. – Wesley College senior wide receiver Ruhann Peele headlined the 14 Wesley representatives on the 2019 All-New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) honorees, which was released by the conference on Friday.

One of the most dangerous wide receivers, Peele was named the Co-Offensive Player of the Year. A two-time NJAC first-team all-conference selection, Peele currently leads the NJAC in receptions (8.1 per game), receiving yards (114.1 per game), receiving touchdowns (12), and points scored (9.2 per game). A three-time NJAC Offensive Player of the Week honoree this year, he also currently ranks second in the conference in all-purpose yards (116.6 per game). Peele also currently ranks 10th in the NCAA in receiving yards.

Senior running back Marcellus Pack, offensive lineman Brandon Bradford, wide receiving Ruhann Peele, junior linebacker Dante Daniel and junior cornerback Isiah Mitchell were all tabbed for the All-NJAC First Team.

Pack, who was NJAC player of the week earlier this season, leads the conference in all-purpose yards (1335), is tied third for scoring Td's (8), fourth in rushing yards (595), fourth in rushing touchdowns (7), and second in kick returns. Pack also earned a spot on All-NJAC Second Team in returns.

Bradford helped lead the offense to a 9-1 season overall and 6-1 in the NJAC.

Daniel ranks fourth in the conference in tackles (43 solo, 40 assisted, 83 total), seventh in passes defended (8), and third in fumbles recovered (3 for 5 yards). Daniel also earned one NJAC defensive player of the week this season.

A 2018 All-NJAC First Team representative, Mitchell finds himself on that list again this year. Mitchell tallied 5 tackles for loss and made 38 tackles this season.

Senior wide receiver Corterris Simpson, tight end Ricky Hess, safety Coray Williams, kicker Nick Bruhn, junior defensive lineman Shymere Vessels, and sophomore offensive lineman Greggory Clark were all named to All-NJAC second team.

The 2018 All-NJAC Special Teams Player of the Year Corterris Simpson earned All-NJAC Second team for the 2019 season. Simpson ranks eighth in the NJAC with 45 receptions for 522 yards.

Rickey Hess and Greggory Clark both helped the offense to a total 4417 offensive yards, good for second in the NJAC.

Vessels racked up a total of 57 tackles this season, 26 solo and 31 assisted. In tackles for loss, Vessels tallied seven solo and six assisted for 29 yards. Vessels was also named NJAC player of the week once this season.

Williams, who earned honorable mention last year, received second team. Williams averaged five tackles per game, 45 total tackles (26 solo and 19 assisted). He also helped lead the team with three interceptions for 25 yards. The highlight of Williams season was his key interception in quadruple overtime against Delaware Valley earlier this season. That interception secured the win for the Wolverines, upsetting the Aggies 24-18.

Kicker and place kicker Nick Bruhn was also among the Wolverines on second team and ranks second in the NJAC in scoring (kicks) with 63 points, third in punting (37 for 1404) and third in field goals.

Seniors Jon Mullin and Joshua Hughes earned honorable mention.

Hughes led the Wesley offense line this season to be ranked second in the NJAC.

After battling for the starting quarterback position, Jon Mullin led the Wolverines to where they are now, a 9-1 overall record thus far and 6-1 in the NJAC. Mullin earned NJAC player of the week earlier this season after recording a game high 23-of-32 passes for 365 yards and three touchdowns. Mullin also ranks second in passing average per game (183.3), third in passing efficiency (142.4), and third in total offense.
