Not surprisingly, national finalists James Madison and North Dakota State lead the way with three selections each on the Athlon Sports FCS Postseason All-America Team.

From James Madison, the 2016 champ who is seeking back-to-back titles, there’s left tackle Aaron Stinnie, defensive end Andrew Ankrah and safety Raven Greene. North Dakota State, the five-time champ from 2011-15, boasts offensive guard Austin Kuhnert, linebacker Nick DeLuca (above, right) and long snapper James Fisher. Their teams are set to meet in a titanic showdown for the FCS championship Jan. 6 in Frisco, Texas.
