WICHITA FALLS, Texas – For the second time in a week, Chadron State College tailback Glen Clinton has been named to an All-America Football Team.
Clinton, a senior from Cody, Wyo., was selected to the 2013 Daktronics All-America Second Team Wednesday as voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
The Harlon Hill finalist and two-time Academic All-American was tabbed as a Beyond Sports Network All-American last week.
Clinton had a sensational senior season for the 8-3 Eagles. He rushed for 1,518 yards, scored 14 touchdowns and gained 1,923 all-purpose yards. Both totals led the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and he also added 43 receptions for 388 yards. Seven of his runs were longer than 50 yards.
Late in the 2013 season, Clinton became the second-leading rusher in Chadron State history and finished his career with 4,656 yards while becoming just the second player ever at CSC to accumulate over 6,000 all-purpose yards.
Clinton joins three other RMAC players on the Daktronics. Colorado State University-Pueblo defensive end Darius Allen and punter Brandon Kleisen, and Colorado Mesa linebacker Jake Edmiston were all first team choices.
The Ron Lenz National Players of the Year are Bloomsburg running back Franklyn Quiteh and Northwest Missouri State defensive lineman Matt Longacre.
The Ron Lenz National Player of the Year award was named for long time South Dakota State sports information director Ron Lenz in 2008. Lenz was instrumental in the foundation of the Daktronics NCAA Division II All-America program.
The team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable displays systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition.
