Augie Safety Named Preseason All-American

Bookmark and Share

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Augustana safety Dan O'Keefe has been named to the 2011 Consensus Draft Services Preseason All-America second team.

O'Keefe, a senior-to-be from Aberdeen, S.D., was an All-NSIC South Division first-team selection a year ago and picked up All-Central Region first-team and All-America honorable-mention honors from the Don Hanson Football Committee. He also recorded 57 tackles, recovered two fumbles and had six interceptions

Last season, Augustana recorded a school-record 11 wins (three more than the previous record), captured a share of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference South Division title and made its first playoff appearance since 1989. The Vikings also hosted and won their first playoff game by defeating Grand Valley State on Nov. 27 at Kirkeby-Over Stadium before falling to eventual national-champion Minnesota Duluth. Augustana finished with an overall record of 11-2 and 9-1 in the NSIC.

The Vikings, who were selected sixth in both The Sporting News and Lindy's Preseason Division II Top-25 polls, open the 2011 season at home on Sept. 3 at 1 p.m. in a non-conference clash with UMD.
