SALEM, VA -- As part of the festivities surrounding the NCAA Division III Football Championship at the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, D3football.com released their All-America teams. Cartel Brooks and Quentin Rembert were named First Team All-Americans and Ben Poirier was named Second Team All-America.
Brooks, a junior running back from Galion, had an incredible season. He rushed for an NCAA All-Divisions record 465 yards at Baldwin Wallace. During the game, he eclipsed the Heidelberg single-season mark. Brooks finished the year with 1,704 yards rushing and 25 total touchdowns.
Rembert, the left tackle from Euclid, played a major role in Brooks' success. He anchored an offensive line that paved the way for an offense that shattered scoring and yardage records.
Poirier, a junior from Canton, Michigan, led the Student Princes with 18 tackles for loss. He recorded six tackles, batted down three passes and forced a fumble.
Three selections to the D3football All-America team is a school record for a single season.
When the 2014 season begins, the Student Princes will christen their new venue, Hoernemann Stadium. Construction on the $4.6M facility began earlier in December. Heidelberg will open with Alma College on September 6.
