MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan University freshman running back Ontario Sneed of Clinton (Ill.) High School and redshirt freshman offensive tackle Andrew Hartline of Stevensville (Mich.) Lakeshore High School have been named to the Sporting News Freshman All-America team.

Ontario Sneed makes the squad as a second team selection, while Hartline is an honorable mention pick. They are the sixth and seventh Chippewas, respectively, to be named to The Sporting News team since 2001.

Sneed, who also made the Freshman All-America team, ran for 1,065 yards and eight touchdowns. He also caught 51 passes for 433 yards and three scores. He ran for at least 100 yards in a game four times, including a career-high 183 at Akron on Oct. 1. He was named MAC West Division Offensive Player of the Week following that contest, in which he also caught six passes for 77 yards and scored three touchdowns in a 31-17 CMU win.

Sneed's 51 receptions are the ninth-most in a season at CMU and the most by a Chippewa running back in a single season.

Andrew Hartline started all 11 games at right tackle in 2005. He was part of a unit that helped CMU average 418.8 yards of offense per game, including 158.7 yards per game on the ground.

Central Michigan finished 6-5 overall, 5-3 in the Mid-American in 2005, its first winning season since 1998.
