Carrollton, GA – A pair of UWG Wolves football standout have added to their many postseason honors. Harley Vaughan and Devontae Jackson are first team members of the 2017 Associated Press Division II All-America Football Team.
The selections of Vaughan and Jackson mark the third consecutive years for UWG to have a selection on the AP All-America Teams. Dylan Donahue was selected to the squad a year ago when it was known as the AP Little All-America Team. Donahue and teammate Orion Awa-Dubose earned the honor following the 2015 season.
For Vaughan, who was chosen a first team All-America offensive lineman, the honor is his second national award of the week. The graduate student from Dawsonville was named Wednesday as second team member of the D2CCA All-America Team. Vaughan was last month chosen to both the All-Gulf South Conference and All-Super Region 2 first teams.
Jackson, a junior out of Wheeler High in Marietta, has also been a multiple time postseason honoree this season. He was named a First Team AP All-America as an all-purpose back. He adds this honor to a lengthy list of plaudits, including his status as a finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy, first team All-GSC and Super Region 2, and he was last month named the Gulf South Conference Offensive Player of the Year.
Additional postseason honors are possible for Vaughan, Jackson, and other UWG players. Several organizations are scheduled to announce their selections later in December, and into January.
