Football Broncos earn All-MAC honors

Nov. 30, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Junior wide receiver Greg Jennings, junior tight end Tony Scheffler and senior punter Adam Anderson have earned All-Mid-American Conference football honors. Jennings and Scheffler received first team accolades; Anderson was a second team selection.

Jennings of Kalamazoo recorded 74 receptions for 1,092 yards--the second highest totals in school history--in addition to 11 touchdown catches. Jennings ranks in the NCAA Top 25 in receiving yards (8th, 99.3 ypg), punt-return yards (12th, 14.8 ypr) and receptions (14th, 6.7 rpg) and rates among the top 10 in five MAC categories: receiving yards (3rd), punt return average (3rd), receptions (6th), all-purpose yardage (8th) and scoring (tied 9th).

Jennings recorded five 100-yard receiving games and became just the second Bronco to record over 1,000 yards for the second time in a career. Jennings' first team selection comes on the heels of a second team nod last season.

Scheffler of Chelsea, Mich., led MAC tight ends with 53 receptions, setting a school record for that position. His 570 yards were the most by a Bronco tight end since Kelly Spielmaker's 575-yard campaign in 1986. Scheffler, who finished second in WMU receiving, caught a career-high 11 passes for 133 yards in the season finale at Marshall. He also was named recently to the Academic All-District IV First Team.

Anderson of Chesaning, Mich., owns the top punting average (42.8 ypp) in the MAC, a figure which ranks 24th nationally. His career average of 41.3 is a new school record. Anderson averaged over 45 yards in five games this season, recording 13 punts over 50 yards and placing 18 kicks inside the 20-yard line. An All-MAC First Team selection in 2003, Anderson becomes the first Bronco punter in school history to earn all-league honors multiple times.
