2018 D3football.com All-South Region Team

MINNEAPOLIS - Bridgewater College junior linebacker Re'Shaun Myers was named a first team All-South Region selection by D3football.com on Tuesday.

Myers, who became Bridgewater's first ODAC Player of the Year in football since Joel Francis in 2012, ranked third in the conference in tackles (84) and fifth in tackles for loss (9.5). He added 3.0 sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

He was named to the D3football.com Team of the Week after recording 2.0 sacks, 3.0 TFLs and returning a fumble for a touchdown vs. Ferrum. He also had 13 tackles and 2.0 tackles for loss vs. Washington & Lee.

Myers recorded double-digit tackles vs. Stevenson, and his strip-sack of Shenandoah quarterback Hayden Bauserman helped spur a 20-point comeback in that victory.

Myers transferred to Bridgewater last fall from Coastal Carolina. In his second season with the Eagles and first with significant preparation, he was in the middle of a unit that led the ODAC in both total defense (341.0 ypg) and rushing defense (125.2 ypg). BC won its final four games to finish 6-4 and tied for second place in the conference.

The All-Region lists, selected in balloting by South Region sports information directors and D3football.com staff, were chosen from 234 nominations by Division III member schools. A total of 76 players were chosen. Players nominated for All-Region are eligible to be considered for D3football.com All-America honors, which will be announced the evening of Dec. 14, in D3football.com's pregame coverage for Stagg Bowl XLVI.

Markeith Miller (Mary Hardin-Baylor) and Frankie Feaster (Muhlenberg) led the D3football.com 2018 All-South Region team- Feaster was named Defensive Player of the Year, while Miller was named the Offensive Player of the Year. Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff, who led the Blue Jays to the Division III national semifinals for the first time with a 12-1 record, was the South Region Coach of the Year.
