Three players from national champion North Dakota State help lead the way on the Athlon Sports 2019 FCS Postseason All-America Team.
Walter Payton Award-winning quarterback Trey Lance, offensive lineman Dillon Radunz, and defensive end Derrek Tuszka stood out for a Bison squad that finished 16-0 after beating James Madison 28-20 in the FCS championship game. James Madison and Montana also had three All-Americans on the 28-player team, which features 20 schools and nine conferences.
The last two Buck Buchanan Award winners – linebacker Montana’s Dante Olson (2019) and Southeast Missouri’s Zach Hall (2018) – joined Dartmouth cornerback Isiah Swann and Bucknell punter Alex Pechin as repeat selections on the team.
