By Ben Conrady

The American Football Coaches Association named senior defensive end Ken Boatright to the Football Conference Series All-American Team Tuesday.

Boatright was one of four defensive linemen and 11 defensive players across the FCS to be named to the team.

The two-year starter served as team captain this season and was named to the Missouri Valley Conference first team Nov. 27 after he finished seventh in the conference with 5.5 sacks and third in tackles for loss with 13.5.


Boatright is the fourth Saluki to be named to the AFCA All-American team in the past five years as he joins center Bryan Boemer (2011), cornerback Kory Lindsey (2009) and guard Aaron Lockwood (2008).
