ST. LOUIS, MO (KWSN) — South Dakota State University defensive lineman Cole Langer was named Tuesday as the Jackrabbit football team's lone representative on the Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Newcomer Team.
A true freshman from Dell Rapids, Langer played in all 12 games during the 2013 regular season, starting five. He finished the regular season with 22 tackles, including a tackle for loss, then added a career-best six tackles with a sack in the Jackrabbits' 26-7 playoff victory over Northern Arizona on Nov. 30.
Youngstown State running back Martin Ruiz was honored as both the MVFC Newcomer of the Year and Freshman of the Year to highlight the team.
Selections to the MVFC All-Newcomer Team are based on a vote by the league's coaches, sports information directors and a media panel.
