SIOUX CITY, Iowa – The Great Plains Athletic Conference has released their 2018 Football All-Conference Teams after a vote of the league’s coaches this past weekend. Midland University had 16 players earn recognition on either the first-team, second-team, or honorable mention list.

Mike Seawell and Johan Williams both earn first-team honors for the Warriors. Seawell was name the top punt return specialist while Williams was named to the team as a defensive lineman.

Seawell was also named to the second-team as a wide receiver. He was joined by teammates Jacob Ellis, tight end, and Daniel Jahn, offensive line, on the second-team offensive list. Rounding out the second team selections for the Warriors were Camdon Griffiths, who was named the second-team punter, and Wyatt Tremayne, who was named a second-team linebacker.

Honorable mention players for Midland were: Alex Boyer, offensive line; Ethan Butler, offensive line; Ashton Ellis, defensive back; Darrin Gentry, wide receiver; Jett Hampton, linebacker; Tyler Koch, defensive line; Ray Rush, defensive back; Keenan Smith, running back, Dalton Tremayne, wide receiver/kick return specialist; and Lukas Vopnford, running back.

“We had six well-deserved first and second team student-athletes representing Midland,” commented head coach Jeff Jamrog. “Mike Seawall, who earned first team punt returner and second team receiver, was our do-everything guy on our football team. He blocks, catches balls, jet sweeps, and then obviously returns kicks. Johan led the league in sacks at defensive line. Our second team guys; Jacob, Daniel, Camdon, and Wyatt; all played excellent football for us. We’ve got a number of these guys back next year. I think the future looks bright here at Midland.”

This season Midland went 7-4 on the gridiron for their third straight winning season. They have 22 wins since Jeff Jamrog took over, which is tied for the third most in the conference. They also swept their fellow Nebraska-based GPAC schools (Concordia, Doane, and Hastings) for the first time since 2010.
