BROOKFIELD, Ill. – The Don Hansen All-Super Region 3 Team has been released for the 2015 football season. Fort Hays State had five players named to the squad, all second-team selections. Earning the honors on offense are Treveon Albert, Shaquille Cooper, and Matt Erbert. On defense, Brock Long and Daniel Lindsey earned the distinction.

Five selections to the Don Hansen All-Super Region Team are the most for the Tigers in program history. The Tigers had four Don Hansen regional selections in 2009.

Albert was one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the nation with both his arm and legs. He finished the season with 1,752 passing yards and 1,228 rushing yards. He finished with the most rushing yards by a quarterback for a single season in FHSU history and fifth most rushing yards in a season overall. He finished his career with 8,111 yards of total offense, setting a new school record. He also set the FHSU career passing touchdowns mark at 55. With 2,399 career rushing yards, he finished seventh on the all-time chart at FHSU. He finished third on the career passing chart with 5,712 yards.

Joining Albert in one of the best rushing combinations nationally was sophomore Shaquille Cooper. He finished the year with 1,441 rushing yards, the third-most in a single season at FHSU. Cooper averaged 120.1 rushing yards per game and he also hauled in a team-high 37 passes for 309 receiving yards. Cooper finished the year with 1,753 all-purpose yards, averaging 146.1 per game.

Erbert adds another all-region honor to his collection. He was named to the D2CCA All-Super Region 3 Team earlier this season. Erbert anchored the offensive line at left tackle, helping the Tigers average 251.1 rushing yards per game.

Long had one of the greatest all-around seasons at linebacker for FHSU. He set a new school record for tackles in a season with 171. It passed the former mark of 164 set by Alex Whitehill in 2011. Aside from the tackles, he also finished with 21.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, and four forced fumbles. Long has garnered numerous All-Super Region and All-America honors for his efforts this year.

Lindsey finished the 2015 season with 85 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, one sack, one forced fumble, and four blocked kicks.
