Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Senior defensive end Chris Vandervest leads a group of five football players from the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) to be bestowed Don Hansen NCAA Division II all-Super Region 3 honors, it was announced on Friday afternoon.

Vandervest was the lone Bulldogs player to be named to the first team, that after he led the team with five quarterback sacks and 18 tackles for a loss while also ranking second with 55 total tackles.

Senior cornerback Kenny Chowa and senior offensive lineman Grant Schnobrich were each named to the second team, while senior linebacker Colby Ring and junior offensive lineman Andrew Muer were given third team honors.
