Alex Baroffio Named To D3football.com All-South Region Team
WASHINGTON, Pa. -- Washington & Jefferson College sophomore wide receiver Alex Baroffio (Bethel Park, Pa./Bethel Park) was selected to the D3football.com 2011 All-South Region Second Team on Monday.
The teams, selected in balloting by South Region sports information directors and D3football.com staff, were chosen from 222 nominations by Division III member schools. A total of 77 players were chosen.
Baroffio, a First Team All-PAC choice, had 70 receptions for 1,102 yards and 10 touchdowns this fall for the 6-4 Presidents. He racked up six 100-yard games, including a 10-catch, 207-yard, three-touchdown performance in the season finale versus Waynesburg. Baroffio scored a touchdown in eight games this season.
On October 8 at Saint Vincent, Baroffio produced 13 receptions (187 yards), the second-best, single-game total in school history. Jordan Roycroft ’10 had 14 catches last year at Thomas More to establish the school record.
He led the PAC in receptions and his 70 catches were 15 more than any other conference receiver. Baroffio’s yardage total also nearly doubled the PAC’s second-leading receiving yard leader, Christian Jackson of Waynesburg (690).
Combined with 52 rushing and 231 punt return yards, Baroffio finished second in the league with 138.5 all-purpose yards per game.
In 21 career games, Baroffio already has 100 career receptions for 1,474 yards and 14 touchdowns. He is 71 catches shy of W&J Athletics Hall of Fame Ryan Silvis ’01 for fifth place on the school’s all-time reception list. David Ravida ’09 is the career reception leader with 192. Baroffio is also nearly half way to Silvis’ career receiving yard record of 3,155 yards.
McMurry’s Hal Mumme was selected as the South Region Coach of the Year, while Wesley quarterback Shane McSweeney (Offense) and Mary Hardin-Baylor linebacker Javicz Jones (Defense) were named the players of the year.
Baroffio was one of six players from the PAC recognized. Waynesburg defensive tackle Darryl Moore, Jr., was the lone first-team choice.
