BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Florida Tech Football’s Adonis Davis has been named to the 2017 Don Hansen NCAA Division II Honorable Mention All-America team, announced by the Don Hansen Football Committee on Thursday.
The Don Hansen team carries out the legacy of long-time small college football advocate Don Hansen, who passed away at age 75 on Aug. 29, 2010. Hansen, from Brookfield, Ill., started and published Don Hansen’s National Weekly Football Gazette for three decades, selecting NCAA Division II All-America teams for the first time in 1988. Don Hansen’s Football Gazette began selecting Division II All-Region squads in 2003.
This is the fourth All-America selection for the Panther defensive lineman following the 2017 season. Davis was also tabbed a first team All-America by the Associated Press (AP), a second team All-America by the America Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and a honorable mention All-America by D2Football.com.
The Columbus, Ohio native earned placement on the Don Hansen All-America team after garnering All-Super Region 2 honors in January.
A two-time recipient of All-Gulf South Conference First Team distinction, Davis ranked among the national leaders in tackles for loss this season with 1.9 per game.
The defensive end set new school single-season records in tackles for loss (19) and sacks (7.5) this season. Davis also ranked second on the team in total tackles with 59 in addition to collecting two forced fumbles.
