The talent remains widespread across the FCS with six players returning to the Athlon 2019 Preseason FCS All-America Team from last year's postseason squad.

 

Running back A.J. Hines (Duquesne), wide receiver Michael Bandy (San Diego), linebackers Zach Hall (Southeast Missouri) and Dante Olson (Montana), cornerback Isiah Swann (Dartmouth), and punt returner D’Angelo Amos (James Madison) are the returnees. All but Amos are seniors.

 

The 28 All-Americans come from 25 schools in 10 conferences. Defending national champ North Dakota State, Jacksonville State, James Madison and Idaho are the only schools with two selections.
