    FRISCO, Texas - The Southland Conference, as part of its year-long 50th Anniversary commemoration, has announced its all-time football team. The squad features many of the finest collegiate and professional athletes to play the game, including 2010 Walter Payton Award winner Jeremy Moses being voted as the league's all-time quarterback. MidSouth Bank, the official banking partner of the SLC, is the presenting sponsor of the All-Time Team.

    A blue-ribbon panel of approximately 50 individuals with coaching, administrative and media expertise in the league led the balloting process, and hundreds of fans were also involved in a portion of voting through the SLC's Facebook page. The overall balloting included an illustrious group of more than 200 outstanding former and current student-athletes and 15 legendary coaches that have patrolled Southland sidelines.

    "We're very proud of the Southland Conference's legacy as one of the nation's finest college football leagues during the past half-century," Commissioner Tom Burnett said. "The quality of the overall list of nominated student-athletes and coaches throughout our five decades was spectacular by itself, and the final selections truly show the superior quality and competitive success we've been very proud of for a long time."

    Split between first and second teams, the overall group of honorees includes student-athletes that accumulated 114 first-team All-SLC honors and 55 first-team All-American accolades. Additionally, all-time team members have combined to play 270 NFL seasons, 29 of them were NFL Draft choices, and collectively, all-time team members made a total of 16 Super Bowl appearances.

    Stephen F. Austin, a four-time Southland champion, had four first-team picks, including quarterback Jeremy Moses (2007-10), the SLC's all-time leading passer (13,401 yards) and 2010 Walter Payton Award recipient. Other Lumberjacks on the first team were linebacker Jeremiah Trotter (1995-97), punter Chad Stanley (1996-98) and return specialist Gralyn Crawford (2009-12).

    The league also announced an all-time second team to complement the first-team picks, which included SFA's Larry Centers (1987-89) and Cordell Roberson (2009-12).

    FIRST-TEAM PROFILES:

He was also the SLC's 2008, 2009 and 2010 passing leader, and the 2009 and 2010 total offense leader.

He was tabbed as a first-team All-American in 1996 by the AFCA, Walter Camp and The Sports Network.
