BRIDGEWATER, Va. - Shenandoah University had three football student-athletes honored by the Virginia State Sports Information Directors Association in All-State selections announced Monday morning by the organization.

Senior Hayden Bauserman, junior Casey Stewart and sophomore Daquan Pridget all were named first team VaSID All-State with Bauserman also picking up offensive Player of the Year honors.

For Bauserman, it is the third straight year that he has been named first team All-State. Stewart and Pridget were both named All-State for the first time in their careers.

Bauserman set ODAC records this season for passing yards, attempts, completions and touchdowns with 355 completions in 555 attempts for 3832 yards and 43 touchdowns. He is the first SU player to be named VaSID Player of the Year.

The 2018 Lanier Award winner as the top NCAA Division II/III/NAIA player in the state, Bauserman was also a finalist for the Gagliardi Award as the top DIII player in the nation.

Bauserman, who was named ODAC Player of the Week three times this season and set a new league mark with 132 career touchdown passes, finished the regular season tops in Division III in passing yards, touchdowns and points responsible for.

Pridget is the owner of the interceptions-in-a-season record thanks to his seven picks this fall. He had three interceptions in the season opener versus Methodist and picked off two passes in the week 10 victory over Guilford. He was named as the league's defensive Player of the Week and to the D3football.com Team of the Week in week one.

Pridget finished the year with a third-best 54 tackles from his cornerback position.
