Two Vandals honored by STATS

Idaho football notables Noah Johnson, a guard, and Cade Coffey, a punter, were named to STATS LLC preseason All-America teams, first announced by the organization’s website Tuesday.

Johnson, going into his senior year, was tabbed a first-teamer on the O-line, while junior Coffey landed on the second team.

Both players were All-Big Sky and All-Americans last year — Johnson was a HERO Sports third-teamer, and Coffey a STATS second-team punter.

A total of 13 Big Sky players made the list. First-teamers include quarterback Jake Maier of UC Davis, tight end Charlie Taumoepeau from Portland State, athlete Troy Andersen from Montana State, O-lineman Zach Larsen of Southern Utah and linebacker Dante Olson, from Montana.

STATS is known as a top outlet nationally for FCS accolades, rankings and coverage.
