FOOTBALL: Randolph-Macon Sweeps All-ODAC Honors

The 2016 Old Dominion Athletic Conference football champion Randolph-Macon Yellow Jackets have swept the top All-ODAC awards announced Tuesday by the league office.

Sophomore tailback Tre Frederick, who rushed for 1,387 yards and eleven touchdowns, both ODAC-best figures, was named the ODAC Offensive Player of The Year, while defensive end Cole Burdette, who had 9.5 of the Yellow Jackets' league-leading 34 sacks, and helped spearhead an offense that gave up just 11.5 points per game in the regular season, was named ODAC Defensive Player of The Year.

Randolph-Macon head coach Pedro Arruza, completing his thirteenth season by compiling a school record-tying nine season wins, was named ODAC Football Coach of The Year.

Frederick and Burdette were also two of eight Yellow Jackets named First Team All-ODAC, along with running back/wide receiver Eric Hoy, offensive lineman Greg Castle, kicker Seth Yurgel, defensive tackle Xavier Strothers, linebacker Logan O'Neill, and defensive back Eric Long.

Six Yellow Jackets earned Second Team honors, while an additional three were named to the Third Team. CLICK HERE to see the 2016 All-ODAC team in its entirety.
