FOREST, Va. – Shenandoah University earned a program-record 12 football All-ODAC honors in selections announced Tuesday morning by the league office.

Included in this total are a program-best four named first team All-ODAC.

Senior Michael Ashwell and junior Hayden Bauserman highlight these first team honors with repeat selections at wide receiver and quarterback, respectively.

That duo is joined by kicker Jacob Newton and defensive back Devontae Dunn, who each earned their first-ever first team All-ODAC accolade.

Newton was previously named second team All-ODAC in 2014.

Offensive guard Andrew Coffman and linebacker Tyler Williams grab second team spots with Jalen Hudson, Leonard Scott, Caleb Hutson, Chris Grady, Jordan Heisen and Nate Hill all picked to the third team.

Hudson was tapped at all-purpose back, Scott at wide receiver, Hutson on the offensive line, Hill as a defensive back and both Grady and Heisen as defensive linemen.

For Hutson and Coffman, it is the second consecutive year earning all-league honors. Last season, Hutson was a second team honoree (also at all-purpose back) and Coffman a third teamer.

Bauserman continued to re-write the record book this season with 3818 yards and 41 touchdowns on 321 completions in 514 attempts.

The junior, who has started every game of his SU career, set new season marks in passing yards and touchdowns, completions and attempts. He passed for at least 300 yards and two TDs in eight of the 10 games this season and was named ODAC Player of the Week on two occasions.

Bauserman finished the regular season tops in Division III in passing yards and second in touchdowns.

Ashwell was on the receiving end of a program-record 80 of those completions with the senior gaining a team-leading 797 yards and nine TDs on those 80 receptions.

Ashwell had at least three receptions in all 10 games and hit double-digits in four of the 10 contests.

Newton led the team in scoring this season, putting up 67 points on 43-of-45 on PATs and making 8-of-10 field goals. The senior had a program-record four field goals in a week six win over Emory and Henry and his 43 successful PATs is a new program record.

Dunn made the most of his first year as a full-time starter, posting 45 tackles, three forced fumbles and three interceptions from his cornerback spot.

Dunn also registered 2.5 tackles for loss and one sack.

Williams, in his first season as a starter at middle linebacker, led the Hornets with 74 tackles including 39 solo.

He was third on the team (to Grady and Heisen) with 9.5 tackles for loss and he registered a season-high 13 tackles against both Hobart in week three and Randolph-Macon in week five.

Coffman and Hutson, the Hornets starting left guard and center, respectively, anchored an offensive line that allowed the offense to put up 495.3 yards and 40.1 points per game. Bauserman was sacked just 12 times this season despite attempting 160 more passes than any season in program history.

Hudson finished fourth in the league in all-purpose yards this season, racking up a combined 1378 yards rushing, receiving, and in punt and kick returns. The junior was particularly damaging in kick returns, finishing third in the league with 25.6 yards per return and also posting a 92-yard touchdown in week eight at Guilford.

Scott earns his first All-ODAC accolade at wideout thanks to a 41-reception, 682-yard season that saw the Deerfield Beach, Florida native score eight touchdowns.

Scott and Ashwell shared the team lead in receiving touchdowns in league play with five.

Grady and Heisen, playing rush end and tackle, respectively, had a combined 86 tackles, 22.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks.

Twenty-four of Grady's 48 stops were solo, his 5.5 sacks were tied for third in the league with his 11.5 tackles for loss good for fifth.

Grady also had the game-clinching touchdown versus Randolph-Macon in the ODAC opener on a 27-yard interception return.

Heisen, who along with Newton and Hutson is a candidate for Academic All-America, had 16 solo tackles among his 38 total stops. He was fifth in the league with 5.0 sacks and sixth in tackles for loss with 11.0.

Hill rounds out the 12 honorees with his third team selection at defensive back. The free safety was all over the field this season, making a fourth-best-on-team 62 tackles while picking off a league-high six passes.

Hill was named as the ODAC Defensive Player of the Week following a week two win at N.C. Wesleyan – he had two interceptions in that game – and he had at least five tackles in nine of the squad's 10 games.

The 12 honorees make it 53 all-time selections in six seasons of ODAC football for the Hornets. Fifteen of those are first team picks.
