Wingate's Rawlings Named Don Hansen Super Region 2 Defensive Player of the Year; 29 SAC Football Players Earn All-Region Honors

BROOKFIELD, Ill. — The Don Hansen Football Committee has released the 2018 Don Hansen NCAA Division II All-Super Region Two squad last week with 29 South Atlantic Conference players being named to the teams.

Additionally, Wingate's Cardell Rawlings earned another Super Region 2 Defensive Player of the Year honor, as he was named the 2018 Don Hansen Defensive Player of the Year. 

The Don Hansen team carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen's National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988.  Don Hansen's Football Gazette began selecting Division II All-Region squads in 2003.                              

The first-team and second-team All-Region selections advance to a national ballot from which the 2018 Don Hansen NCAA Division II All-America team will be selected.
