University at Buffalo tight end Matt Weiser earned first-team all-star honors from the Mid-American Conference Wednesday. The MAC released its postseason football awards, and Weiser was the lone first-team honoree for UB.
Weiser, a 6-foot-5 senior, finished second the nation in catches by a tight end with 63 and second in receiving yards by a tight end with 625. Both of those totals set the UB single-season record for a tight end.
UB placed two players on the second team and two players on the third team in the vote of MAC coaches. Senior left tackle John Kling and junior outside linebacker Brandon Berry were second-team choices.
Junior cornerback Boise Ross and senior outside linebacker Okezie Alozie were third-team selections.
Berry ranked eighth in the MAC in tackles with 104. He also had 11.5 tackles for loss. Alozie had a team-high five sacks and ranked third in tackles with 85. Ross had 20 passes defended, which ranked second in the MAC and fifth in the country.
Toledo coach Matt Campbell, who this week took the coaching job at Iowa State, was named coach of the year. Bowling Green quarterback Matt Johnson was offensive player of the year. Akron linebacker Jatavis Brown was defensive player of the year.
