Sun Belt Football 2015 All-Conference Team

Fredi Knighten

Fredi Knighten

With a solid core of experienced quarterbacks and playmakers returning, the Sun Belt should provide plenty of intriguing matchups and offensive fireworks in 2015. Arkansas State’s Fredi Knighten is Athlon Sports’ first-team All-Sun Belt quarterback, and the senior is a big reason why the Red Wolves are one of the favorites to win the conference this year.

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the Sun Belt 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.
