2014 AFCA Division III All-America Football Team

HARTFORD, Conn. – Trinity senior center Joe Magardino has been honored by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) as a First Team All-American. Magardino, a two-time All-NESCAC First Team selection, was the only individual from a NESCAC team on the 25-player squad.

The Chappaqua, N.Y. native anchored an offensive line that produced the league’s most potent rushing attack that averaged 208.6 yards per game. Magardino and the rest of the offensive line also surrendered just 11 sacks all season. The Bantams finished the 2014 campagin with a 5-3 record after dropping its final three games of the season, the last two by one point apiece.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions.
