Jr WR Rasheed Bailey
ANNVILLE (PA) – Delaware Valley College’s run to the postseason for the 10th time in the last 11 years did not go unrecognized by the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) coaches as 12 Aggies were named to the all-conference team.

Delaware Valley had six players earn a spot on the first team while two were voted to the second team and four were selected as honorable mentions. Of the 12 total, eight were first-time honorees. The following Aggies were recognized by the MAC:
First Team
         Rasheed Bailey (Philadelphia, PA/Roxborough) – junior wide receiver
         William Carter (Pottstown, PA/Pottstown) – senior offensive lineman
         Kyle Schuberth (Darby, PA/Monsignor Bonner) – senior running back
         Josh Wallace (Philadelphia, PA/Northeast) – sophomore offensive lineman
         Aaron Wilmer (Philadelphia, PA/George Washington) – junior quarterback
         Danny Wynne (Hatfield, PA/North Penn) –
sophomore defensive back
Second Team
         John Alvarez (Landisville, NJ/Buena) – senior offensive lineman
         Ken Kenner-English (Philadelphia, PA/Roman Catholic) – sophomore linebacker
Honorable Mention
         Michael Anusky (Philadelphia, PA/Archbishop Ryan) – sophomore special teams
         John Marcelline (Bensalem, PA/Bensalem) – senior linebacker
         Brandon Snyder (Shillington, PA/Governor Mifflin) – junior placekicker
         Max Stella (Doylestown, PA/Central Bucks West) – junior tight end
Schuberth and Wilmer received all-MAC honors for the third time in each of their standout careers. For Schuberth, it’s his second straight year on the first team after earning a spot on the second team in 2011. The Beyond Sports College Network (BSN) preseason All-American has had quite a senior year as he is currently ninth in the country in rushing with an average of 155 yards per game. He missed the first two contests with an injury, but has still netted 1,240 yards and 14 touchdowns on 204 carries. In the process, he also became just the second running back in school history to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark in three consecutive seasons (1,095 yards in 2011 and 1,056 yards in 2012). Schuberth has rushed for 180 or more yards on four occasions, including last week’s 235-yard (third-highest in school history) performance against Widener.
Wilmer, the 2011 MAC Rookie of the Year, moved up to the first team after second-team accolades in both 2011 and 2012. He has played in eight games and has completed 141 of 243 passes for 1,943 yards. Wilmer has also been a threat in the running game with 360 yards and three trips to the end zone on 92 carries.
Carter and Wallace earned a spot on the all-conference team for the first time in their careers. Carter, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound left tackle came back to the team after a one-year hiatus while the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Wallace earned the starting job at left guard in preseason camp The two have helped pave the way for an offense that averages 32.5 points and 441.6 total yards per game.
Bailey’s first all-MAC nod comes as a result of his 46 catches for 915 yards and eight touchdowns (all tops among Delaware Valley receivers). He has caught at least three passes in all 10 games and has gone over the 100-yard mark on five separate occasions (four against conference opponents).
Wynne is the lone Aggie defensive player to earn a spot on the all-MAC first team and it’s his first conference accolade as well. The first-year starter tops all secondary players in the conference and ranks third overall in tackles with 101. The safety also has three pass breakups, one interception, one forced fumble and one blocked kick to his credit.
Alvarez made a smooth transition from right tackle to center and picked up his first all-conference honor. He has helped the line allow just 16 sacks in the first 10 games and the offense has notched 30 or more points seven times.
Kenner-English has shined in his first year as a starter at linebacker and he is second on the team in tackles with 80, including a career-best 17 in last week’s win over Widener. He leads the way with eight pass breakups and also has one sack to his credit. It was his first time on the all-MAC squad.
It is the also first time that Anusky’s name has appeared on the all-conference team. He is on the field for all special team formations including serving as the long snapper on punts and as a punt returner. He is second in the conference with an average of 8.6 yards per punt return.
Marcelline picked up his second all-MAC honor as he was a second-team pick last year. His 2013 numbers include 64 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception in nine games. He had 12 tackles and his one pick against Widener last week.
It is Snyder’s second straight all-MAC honor as well and his second time on the honorable mention team. Snyder is second in the conference in scoring as he has hit nine of 14 field goal attempts and 38 of 41 extra-point attempts for 65 yards. One of his field goals was the game-winner with no time remaining at Albright.
Stella was recognized by the conference coaches for the first time. He has 11 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown with his lone score coming in the win over MAC foe Stevenson. Stella also plays a role as a key blocker in the Aggie rushing attack.
Delaware Valley ended the 2013 regular season with a 7-3 overall record, including a 6-3 mark in the conference. The Aggies were selected to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championships and will host Franklin & Marshall College (6-4) for the Southeast Bowl on Saturday, November 23 (12:00 p.m.).
