BRIEFS: UCD\’s Rogers is an All-American

By
December 7, 2010 |

\n

His 2010 statistics were solid, not eye-popping, but UC Davis\’ bruising tight end Dean Rogers left a big impression on opponents and teammates alike with his physical play for the Aggies.

\n

And when the AFCA Football Championship Subdivision Coaches announced their All-American team on Tuesday, Rogers was one of two Great West Conference players to earn recognition.

\n

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound senior from Visalia, caught 30 passes for 404 yards and three touchdowns this season to help UCD to a 6-5 overall record and a second-place 3-1 mark in conference play. The Aggie team captain caught at least one pass in 10 games, including a

\n

season-high five against Southern Utah on Oct. 30, and was named to the All-Great West team for the third consecutive season.

\n

Rogers had four other games with four catches, including two receptions during UCD\’s game-winning drive at Cal Poly on Nov. 13, to upset the No. 19/18 Mustangs, 22-21. Two of his touchdowns came during the Aggies\’ 38-24 win at San Diego in September.

\n

Rogers finished second among all Aggie receivers for catches, yards and touchdowns and joins Great West MVP Tysson Poots of Southern Utah on the FCS All-American squad. Poots had 85 catches for 1,230 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2010.

\n

UCD has had a first-team FCS All-American in each of the last three years, including linebacker Mike Morales (Associated Press) last year and defensive tackle John Faletoese (Associated Press, Sports Network, Walter Camp) in 2008. Rogers is the first Aggie named to an AFCA squad since offensive lineman Troy Larkin earned the distinction in 1999.

\n

The 25-player AFCA All-America team is chosen exclusively by coaches.

\n

After winning their last three games and still having just one loss all season — on the road against No. 10 UCLA — the Aggies have moved all the way up to No. 8 in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25.

\n

UCD (6-1) has a perfect 4-0 mark at The Pavilion, where it has won 12 straight dating back to last year, the 14th-best active home winning streak in NCAA D-I. The Aggies are now in the midst of an 11-day break for final exams and will resume action on Sunday at Kansas State, a team that is receiving votes in the Associated Press poll.

\n

Senior Paige Mintun (13.6 points per game) and sophomore Vicky Deely (12.3 ppg) have led UCD in scoring so far, with Deely pacing the team in rebounding (6.1). She is also among the national leaders in 3-point shooting, draining 54.5 percent of her attempts to rank fifth in the country.

\n

As a team, the Aggies rank 11th nationally in steals per game (14.3) and 22nd in 3-pointers per game (7.7). They\’re among the top 100 teams in 11 statistical categories.

\n

Sunday\’s game at Kansas State begins at noon and can be heard on KDVS (90.3 FM).

Spring lacrosse

\n

Registration is still open for the Davis Lacrosse Association\’s 2011 girls spring programs. Parents can register online at http://www.davislax.org until Friday.

\n

Teams are established by age ranging from U9, for players born between Jan. 1, 2002, and Dec. 31, 2003, and U15, for players born between Jan. 1, 1996, and Dec. 31, 1997. Practices will start in late January or early February with times and locations to be announced.

\n

The registration cost is $350 for U15 and U13 players and $250 for U11 and U9 players. For insurance purposes, all players must be members of U.S. Lacrosse ($25 annual fee). Scholarship assistance is available.

\n

There is a late fee of $50 for any registration or payment received after the above dates. Team sizes are limited so all players have an opportunity to play, so early registration is encouraged.

\n

Players must obtain their own equipment.

\n

Information about Davis Lacrosse Association, the sport, equipment and other items can be on the website or by contacting Don Aiello at donaldta@pacbell.net or (530) 750-3892.
