by Arnie Palu

Mammoth High School Graduate Matt Graef is a sophomore linebacker at Illinois College, a NCAA division III school in Jacksonville Illinois.  The Blueboys compete in the Midwest Conference.  This week the Midwest Conference announced their All-Conference selections and Matt Graef earned 2nd team honors.  Graef had a standout sophomore season leading the Blueboys in tackles in route to a 5-5 record.

Midwest Conference Announcement:

GRINNELL, Iowa – The Illinois College football team – fresh off its 30-27 overtime victory over Carroll University in the No. 2 matchup of the Midwest Conference Championship Weekend – put nine members on the All-MWC South Division teams on Wednesday. Dinari Ellis, Austin Ellsworth, Brady Huber, Kyle Nance, Brody Pogue, Meeko Reddick and Logan Uyetake were First Team selections, while Matt Graef and Dylan Schuler made it onto the Second Team.

On the second team for the Blueboys were the linebacker tandem of sophomore Matt Graef and senior Dylan Schuler. Graef led Illinois College with 78 tackles (47 solo) and had four tackles for loss and a pair of fumble recoveries.

“Matt has the potential to be an unbelievable player and I’m hoping that this is just the beginning for him,” said Head Coach Garrett Campbell. “He has the work ethic, athleticism and ability to do some great things here and be a leader for us in the years to come.

Illinois College wrapped up the 2015 season with a 5-5 record, including a 3-2 mark in the MWC South that tied for second and left the Blueboys with the No. 2 spot thanks to holding the tiebreaker against Cornell and Lake Forest. It was the seventh straight season under Coach Campbell that the Blueboys ended with a record of .500 or better.
