MSU SPORTS INFORMATION
A trio of Montana State football players accustomed to seeing their names in headlines during the football season are getting equally used to after it. Juniors DeNarius McGhee and Tanner Bleskin earned academic honors, while senior Caleb Schreibeis added to both his academic and athletic resumes on Thursday.
Schreibeis, a defensive end, continued to add to one of the most illustrious resumes in MSU history, when College Sports Journal named him to its All-Academic Team. The Billings West product had previously earned Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-District 7 honors. McGhee was also named to the College Sports Journal squad.
Also on Thursday, the Football Championship Subdivision's Athletic Directors Association named McGhee and Bleskin to its Academic All-Star team. Bleskin also earned Capital One CoSIDA Academic All-America Second Team honors.
Schreibeis also joined an exclusive list of Bobcats Thursday when the East-West Shrine game added him to its roster of players to compete on January 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla. The 2012 Buchanan Award recipient as the top defensive player in the FCS becomes the sixth Bobcat to participate in the East-West Shrine Game, joining Sonny Holland, Joe Tiller, Don Hass, Bill Kollar and Mark Fellows.
Zach Minter, a 2011 Bobcat All-America at defensive tackle, has earned a spot in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game in Tucson, Ariz., on January 11, as well. Minter is originally from Glendale, Ariz.
