Seven LHU football players earn All-PSAC honors

LOCK HAVEN — Seven Lock Haven University football players have earned All-Conference honors, including five who earned a spot on the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division first team.

Redshirt-senior quarterback Caleb Walton, junior tight end Del’Vaughn Dennis, redshirt-senior wide receiver Shawn Seif, redshirt-junior offensive lineman Trent Fielding and redshirt-senior linebacker Kevin Chapple were all named to the first team.

Redshirt-sophomore defensive back Isaiah Flamer and true-freshman return specialist Nysir Minney-Gratz both earned second-team honors.

The seven total All-PSAC players are the most since LHU had seven total honorees in 2001. The five first-teamers are the most since 1982 when LHU also had five.

Walton, Dennis, Seif and Fielding’s All-PSAC first-team offensive selections marked the most for LHU since Lock Haven put four on the first team PSAC West offense in 1979. The four led a Lock Haven offense that broke nearly every major single-season record. Highlighting the offensive charge was a school record in total points (323 pts.), total offense (4,954 yds.) and team passing offense (3,158 yds.).

Walton is also LHU’s first quarterback to earn first-team honors since Dan Spittal in 1979. Minney-Gratz is the first Bald Eagle to earn All-PSAC honors since wide receiver Rafael Smith in 2003.
