Stony Brook senior and William Floyd alum Brock Jackolski has been named to the 2011 American Football Coaches Association FCS Coaches’ All-America Team.
“What an awesome feeling,” Jackolski said in a statement. “Being called an All-American is one of the highest accomplishments a football player can get. I’ve always wanted to call myself an All-American, and now I can.”
Jackolski, who’s part of the 25-member squad as an all-purpose player, recorded one of the best seasons in Stony Brook and Big South history.
He rushed for 1,418 yards, had 114 receiving yards, 55 punt return yards and 854 kick return yards, totaling 20 touchdowns. The 2,441 all-purpose yards and 20 touchdowns are Big South single-season records.
He’s one of five players in Big South history with more than 4,000 all-purpose yards, accomplishing the feat in just two years. Including two seasons at Hofstra, Jackolski has totaled 6,394 all-purpose yards, which ranks 16th in FCS history.
