Three Jackrabbits Honored as Preseason All-Americans



Bookmark and Share

BROOKINGS, S.D. — Three seniors on the South Dakota State University football team have been named preseason All-Americans by College Sporting News.

Honored on the first team was center Ryan McKnight . The 6-foot-1, 295-pound senior from Sioux Falls, was a first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection in 2009 after starting all 12 games for the Jackrabbits' playoff-qualifying squad and was an integral part of an offense that averaged 27.8 points and 341.2 yards of total offense per game.

Linebacker Derek Domino earned second-team recognition. A native of Spring Lake Park, Minn., Domino also earned first-team all-MVFC recognition in 2009 after leading the squad with 100 tackles and sharing the team lead with five interceptions. Domino returned two of his interceptions for touchdowns.

Running back Kyle Minett was tabbed as a third-team selection. A native of Ruthton, Minn., Minett was named to the Walter Payton Award watch list for the top offensive player in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision earlier this summer. Minett enters his senior season third among returning FCS backs and fourth on the SDSU career charts with 3,069 career rushing yards. A two-time second-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection, he has posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, rushing for 1,304 yards and 16 TDs last season, when he was named to the Associated Press All-America Third Team.

SDSU, which is ranked ninth in the preseason Sports Network media poll and 10th in the FCS Coaches poll, opens the season Sept. 11 at nationally ranked Delaware.
