2007 Preseason All-MAC Offense

Offensive Player of the Year
QB Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan
Early in the opening game of the year against Boston College, now-sophomore Dan LeFevour had to step in. All he did was come this close to beating the Eagles with a 221-yard passing day with 72 rushing yards and two scores, and then he went on to lead the team to the MAC title with 3,031 passing yards, 26 touchdown passes, 521 rushing yards and seven scores. He's 6-3, 226-pounds and an effective runner when he gets a lane to take off. While he threw ten interceptions, few turned out to be killers. Not afraid to take chances, he'll try a few throws here and there he probably shouldn't make, but he's almost always able to pull them off. Now he'll be the league's signature star going into the season.

2007 Preseason All-MAC Defense

Defensive Player of the Year
DE Larry English, Northern Illinois
The star of the NIU defense is junior end Larry English, a 6-3, 255-pound regular in opposing backfields with 12 sacks and 16 tackles for loss last season, and 129 tackles over the last two seasons. He bulked up and now doesn't look like a linebacker playing end; he's a true lineman with NFL potential. Too fast for most tackles, now, if his banged up knee is fine, he should be even more productive after two years of experience.
