MSFA Midwest League co-champs Saint Xavier lead the way with ten First Team selections, as the 2021 All-MSFA Midwest League Team was announced on Monday.

Saint Xavier and fellow co-champions St. Francis combine for 18 of the 31 spots on the First Team, with eight picks on defense, and six on offense. The Saints claim their first MSFA Midwest League Offensive Player of the Year in a decade with quarterback Sam Tumilty; Tumilty finished second in the nation at the NAIA level in rushing, averaging 152.3 yards per game, and finished with an Midwest League-high 14 TDs on the year.

On the other side of the ball, Olivet Nazarene linebacker Jason Freeman was named the Midwest League Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in a row. Freeman led the NAIA with 16.0 tackles per game, with a high of 31 tackles in the Tigers’ win over Trinity International earlier this month.

St. Francis head coach Joe Curry was named MSFA Midwest League Coach of the Year for the second time in his career. Tom Miller, defensive coordinator for the Saints, was tagged as this year’s Midwest League Assistant Coach of the Year.
