Aggie football team has reasons to party

January 31, 2011 |


Even though it is the offseason, the UC Davis football program has a lot to celebrate this week.


The Aggies handed out individual awards for the 2010 season at a team banquet on Sunday and


the accolades continued on Monday when offensive lineman Sean Davies was named to the Great West\’s Academic All-Conference squad.


The celebrating continues on Wednesday, when UCD will host a shindig in honor of its 2011 recruiting class in the Bruce Edwards Club Room at Aggie Stadium. Fans are invited to join the coaching staff in a commemoration of the National Letter of Intent signees, which will be announced that day.


Per NCAA rules, the prospective student-athletes or families of prospective student-athletes are not permitted to attend.


The hosted event begins with a social hour at 5 p.m., followed by an introduction of the recruiting class, a highlight video and a question-and-answer session.


The Aggies hope some of the new recruits turn out as well as Davies, a political science major who started 10 games for UCD in 2010.


The 6-foot-4, 290-pound sophomore from Westlake Village missed the opener at Cal due to injury, but helped provide leadership by starting the remainder of the games at guard for the Aggies.


Davies was named to the Great West Academic squad for the second straight season, as the conference recognized 180 student-athletes from five sports who have earned at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA, are in their second year in the institution and participated in at least 50 percent of their team\’s games this year.


The honor came on the heels of the numerous awards that were handed out by the coaches on Sunday at the UCD Activities and Recreation Center.


Aggies to earn kudos were linebacker Dozie Amajoyi (Jerry Norris Award: Most Inspirational & Valuable Player); lineman Reggie Mason (Aggie Pride); wide receiver Sean Creadick (Outstanding Back/Receiver); center Ray Wilburn (Outstanding Lineman/Linebacker); punter Colton Schmidt (Special Teams Player of the Year); safety Danny Hart (Bob Oliver Award, Unsung Hero); wide receiver Stephen Dunstan (Most Improved Player); linebacker Jordan Glass (Jim Ferrier Award: Outstanding Transfer); linebacker Byron Gruendl (T. Palmer Moody Award: Outstanding Sophomore); quarterback Randy Wright and cornerback Jonathan Perkins (Mike Wise Award: Outstanding Freshmen); and quarterback London Lacy, linebacker Steven Pitts and defensive lineman Jake Waas (George Belenis Award: Outstanding Redshirts).


UCD finished the 2010 season with a 6-5 overall record and a 3-1 mark that was good enough for second place in the Great West.
