All-star nods

By Jon Roe

They might not have enough for a galaxy, but the Dinos football team do have a pile of stars.

Seven Dinos were named to the conference all-star team Tuesday.

Quarterback Erik Glavic, runningback Matt Walter and wide receiver Nathan Coehoorn were unanimous picks for all-star spots. Slotback Anthony Parker, second-year centre Alex Krausnick-Groh, rookie right tackle Kirby Fabien and linebacker Andrea Bonaventura were also named to the team.

Glavic led the conference with a 67.5 completion percentage, passed for 14 touchdowns and 2,186 yards. He also ran for 503 yards. Walter scrambled for a career-high 1,103 yards and nine touchdowns and added three touchdowns through the air.

Parker and Coehoorn finished one-two in receiving yards in the conference with 816 yards and 765 yards respectively. Parker snagged five TDs in the air; Coehoorn four.

Krausnick-Groh and Fabien were key cogs in an offensive machine that lead the nation in rushing with 2,289 yards.

Bonaventura finished the season with 40.5 tackles and a sack.

The University of Saskatchewan Huskies, University of Manitoba Bisons and Simon Fraser University Clan all placed four players on the all-star team. The University of Alberta Golden Bears and the University of Regina Rams both placed three players. The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds had two all-stars.

The conference major-award winners will be announced Thursday, Nov. 12.
