Chippewas Land Three on MAC First Team

MOUNT PLEASANT - Three Central Michigan University football players garnered first team All-Mid-American Conference laurels announced Monday.

Senior offensive tackle Adam Kieft, a 6-7, 328-pounder from Rockford, and a pair of sophomores -- tailback Jerry Seymour, a 5-6, 190-pounder from Miami, Fla., and defensive end Daniel Bazuin, a 6-3, 258-pounder from McBain, were first team choices.

Named to the second team was senior outside linebacker James King, a 6-1, 204-pounder from Walled Lake Western.

Bazuin, fourth in balloting for MAC "Freshman of the Year" in 2003, finished this past season with 50 tackles including eight for losses of 46 yards yards. He also blocked a team-high four kicks.

King, a second team All-MAC pick in `03, had 79 tackles in 2004 and led the team with 11 stops for losses of 47 yards. He also had a team-high four QB sacks for minus 25 yards and finished with three blocked kicks.
