Dec. 5, 2012
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin seniors Josh Aubrey (corner back), Cordell Roberson (receiver) and John Steel (c enter) have been named to the Beyond Sports College Network (BSN) All-America team announced publication officials Wednesday afternoon. Roberson garnered first-team honors, while Aubrey was third team and Steel received honorable mention recognition.
Despite missing two games due to injuries, Roberson produced one of the best seasons in school history hauling in 77 passes for 1,006 and 10 touchdowns. The league's top receiver leaves SFA as the program's all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches. The three-time first-team All-SLC selection also set a new conference mark for touchdown catches in a career (39) and ranks second all-time in the SLC in receptions and yards.
A two-time first-team All-Southland Conference selection, Aubrey has been one on the nation's top corners over the course of his career. A 2012 first-team all-conference selection, Aubrey finished his career in a purple and white uniform with 251 career tackles, and seven interceptions.
Steel was a key member of an offensive line that ranked among the nation's best in pass protection each of his four seasons on campus. A three-time All-SLC selection, Steel anchored an offensive front that ranked among the nation's top 25 every season, and led the nation in 2011 despite passing the ball nearly 600 times. The Lumberjack offense finished the year ranked first in passing offense, and second in total offense in 2012, while blocking for first-team all-league running back Gus Johnson.
