BELTON, TX (KXXV) -

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team placed three players on the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-America Teams released Monday, December 12th. UMHB had one First Team selection and two Second Team picks.

Defensive end Teidrick Smith was named to the AFCA All-America First Team. Smith, a senior from Hallettsville High School, has 56 total tackles and leads the Cru with 22.5 tackles for loss and 14.5 sacks. Smith also has four pass break-ups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery this season. He also became the first player in American Southwest Conference history to win three consecutive conference Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Offensive guard Broderick Jenkins and defensive back Baylor Mullins were both named to the AFCA All-America Second Team. Jenkins, a senior from Frisco Centennial High School, has helped clear the way for a Cru offense that averages 49.4 points, 246.3 rushing yards and 483.3 yards of total offense per game.
