The Mid-American Conference announced their All-MAC football team this morning and four Rockets made the list. Barry Church was the only first team selection, while Nick Moore and Stephen Williams made second team, and DaJuane Collins made third team.

Barry Church earned his 3rd First Team All-MAC honor. The junior strong safety recorded 93 tackles this season, while also intercepting one pass and forcing three fumbles.

Church announced a couple of weeks ago that he plans to return for his senior season at Toledo in 2009 and finish his degree. He had been considered a possible late round NFL draft or free agent pickup if he decided to leave school early and enter the 2009 NFL Draft.

Senior wide receiver Nick Moore led the Rockets with 78 receptions for 779 yards and one touchdown. He also threw a touchdown pass on a trick play. He finishes his career at Toledo with 182 receptions and 13 receiving touchdowns. He also threw three touchdown passes on trick plays throughout his career at Toledo.

Junior wide receiver Stephen Williams has joined Moore on the Second Team All-MAC list. Williams had 71 receptions for 781 yards and 8 TD's this season. With his senior season still to come, Stephen now has 150 receptions for 2,037 yards and 16 TD's in his career at Toledo.

Junior running back DaJuane Collins made Third Team All-MAC this year after rushing for 700 yards and scoring five touchdowns. He missed two games completely with injuries and played very little in a few others because of the injuries, but still managed 700 yards and over 5.5 yards per carry.

DaJuane has now rushed for 1,597 yards and 15 touchdowns during his career at Toledo, with still his senior season to come in 2009.
