Tyler Thomsen added to his postseason accolades with an All-America honor.
The junior linebacker from Wayne State was listed on the Third Team of the Don Hansen All-America roster.
The Don Hansen Football Committee carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988.
Thomsen was a First Team All-NSIC South Division selection this season and led the league with 120 tackles. He also had 5.5 tackles-for-loss, an interception, a fumble recovery and two blocked kicks.
