Three members of the Central State University football team have been named to the Don Hansen All-Region team as announced by the Football Gazette.

Kevin Greenhow and Kailen Abrams earned First Team honors while Terraris Saffold was selected to the Second Team.

A transfer from Hocking Community College, Greenhow led the conference with 34 receptions for 880 yards and nine touchdowns. In eight games, the 6'3 junior receiver averaged 110 receiving yards per contest. His best performance was against NCAA Div. I - FCS opponent Robert Morris when he caught 11 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns. His 276 receiving yards is the most by any Marauder since the school reintroduced the football program in 2005. After posting 207 receiving yards the next week against Tuskegee, Greenhow became the first CSU play to record back-to-back games of 200 or more receiving yards since the 1995 season. Greenhow adds Don Hansen All-Region honors to his All-SIAC selection, CCA Super-Region selection, and Harlon Hill nomination.

Abrams, a 6'2 sophomore from Detroit, Michigan, emerged as the SIAC leader in tackles with 118 and an impressive average of 12 tackles per game.



He also recorded 2.5 sacks, 12 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. In addition to All-Region honors, Abrams earned back-to-back All-SIAC selections and CCA Super Region Honorable Mention honors.

Saffold, who finished the season with a career-high 214 rushing yards against Lane, led the SIAC with 1776 all-purpose yards. The junior from Hayneville, Alabama finished the year with 874 rushing yards and 362 receiving yards. He also ranked No. 2 among SIAC return men, averaging 23.6 yards per kick return. Saffold also earned All-SIAC honors.

ABOUT THE DON HANSEN ALL-REGION TEAM
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, Illinois, 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.
