2009 Preseason All-MAC Offense
Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Dan LeFevour, Central Michigan

LeFevour is due for a huge senior season after fighting through ticky-tack injuries, mostly to his ankle, throughout last year. He led the team in rushing, again, with 592 yards and six scores, but he tore off 1,122 yards and 19 touchdowns two years ago. He threw for 3,652 yards and 27 scores in 2007, and while he completed 67% of his throws, he only threw for 2,784 yards with 21 touchdowns. On the plus side, he was more careful with the ball throwing just six picks with two of them coming against Purdue. At 6-3 and 223 pounds, he has NFL size, he's a good leader and a proven winner who carries his team as much as any quarterback in America not named McCoy or Tebow, and he has the right attitude.

2009 Preseason

All-MAC Defense
Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
SS Barry Church, Toledo


One of the nation's best strong safeties, he'll play a Star linebacker role where he'll do a little bit of everything. The one-time star recruit has lived up to the hype, and then some, and he'll do whatever the team needs to win. He was second on the team last season with 93 tackles with an interception, six broken up passes, and 5.5 tackles for loss, and now he'll get more room to roam. At 6-2 and 219 pounds, he has good size, next-level range, and the potential to have a monster season, even by his high standards, with even more room to roam and make plays.
