MAC Football 2015 All-Conference Team

Blake Frohnapfel

Blake Frohnapfel

The MAC should have plenty of offensive fireworks in 2015. There’s no shortage of talent at quarterback in this league, beginning with UMass’ Blake Frohnapfel, as the senior headlines Athlon’s 2015 All-MAC team. However, Bowling Green’s Matt Johnson, Western Michigan’s Zach Terrell, Buffalo’s Joe Licata, Northern Illinois’ Drew Hare and Central Michigan’s Cooper Rush are all in the mix for all-conference honors. The MAC also features two star running backs capable of pushing for All-America honors in Toledo’s Kareem Hunt and Western Michigan’s Jarvion Franklin.

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the MAC last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2015.

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2015. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2015 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
