Wolves place seven in All-GSC

Carrollton, GA - Following one of the most successful seasons in a decade, the UWG football team continued that success Thursday as seven players were named All-Gulf South Conference in the 41st edition of the annual coaches vote.

The seven players named All-GSC included one First Team nod and six on the Second Team, marking a tie for the most West Georgia players honored as All-GSC since UWG placed 10 on the team in 2001. In addition, freshman Teddy Lawrence was named GSC Defensive Freshman of the Year and head coach Daryl Dickey was named Co-Coach of the Year.
Denarius Appling

Denarius Appling was named both First Team and Second Team All-GSC this season after earning Second Team return
specialist honors a year ago. He was named First Team return specialist after averaging 38.9 yards per return on punts, including three touchdowns. He was a distinct weapon and didn't get much of an opportunity to return punts in the second half of the season as teams chose to punt away from him. In addition, he returned 33 kickoffs with an average of 20.8 yards per return.
