Sixteen members of Mountain East Conference champion Shepherd University gained All-MEC honors, announced Tuesday.

Senior quarterback Connor Jessop was named MEC Offensive Player of the Year, senior defensive end Myles Humphrey was selected as MEC Defensive Player of the Year, and Monte Cater was named MEC Coach of the Year for the fourth time in five years.

Jessop threw for 3,284 yards and an MEC-record 38 touchdowns. He connected on 65 percent of his passes and was intercepted just seven times in 357 attempts. He threw for at least three touchdowns in every game this season, and added 334 yards rushing and six more scores. He leads the country in points accounted for (270) and is second in passing touchdowns and passing yards per game (328.4), directing an offense that averaged 48.5 points per game, second-best in Division II.

Humphrey led the league with 11 solo sacks and finished with 11.5 on the season, becoming the school’s career leader in that category. He also led the league by forcing four fumbles and was fourth in the league in tackles-for-loss with 18.

Cater led Shepherd to a third straight undefeated regular season (his seventh overall) and fourth conference championship. The Rams ascended to No. 2 in the AFCA poll, their highest ranking in program history. Shepherd is in the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years and is the second seed in Super Region 1.

Senior running back Jabre Lolley, junior wide receiver Ryan Feiss, sophomore tight end D.J. Cornish, senior center Jaime Colon, senior offensive lineman Lavonte Hights, senior inside linebacker James Gupton, senior defensive back Tre Anderson (North Hagerstown) and junior defensive back DeJuan Neal join Humphrey and Jessop as first-team selections.

Lolley rushed 168 times for 1,101 yards and 15 touchdowns this season. He also leads the Rams in scoring (108 points) and touchdowns (18), and made 12 receptions for 172 yards and three scores.

Feiss leads Shepherd receivers with 87 receptions for 1,310 yards and eight touchdowns.

Cornish has 31 receptions for 474 yards and six touchdowns.

Colon and Hights anchored a versatile Shepherd offensive line that paved the way for the Rams to average 527.4 yards of total offense.

Gupton leads the Rams with 71 tackles (49 solos). He has 13.5 tackles-for-loss, five sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a pass breakup.

Anderson has 31 tackles, including 25 solo stops. He leads the team with three interceptions and also has three pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Neal has 23 tackles (21 solo), three pass breakups and a pair of interceptions.

Junior wide receiver Wanya Allen, sophomore offensive lineman Keandre Batson and senior defensive end Elijah Norris were named to the second team.

Senior defensive lineman Bruno Anyangwe, freshman inside linebacker Chrys Lane and junior punter Ruan Venter were honorable mention selections.

The all-conference teams and individual award winners are selected by a vote of the league’s coaches.
