The California University of Pennsylvania football team featured 10 players selected to the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) West Teams, which were announced on Tuesday afternoon.

The Vulcans featured four players on the first team and six on the second team. Junior center Jack Abercrombie, senior defensive back Dewey McDonald, senior defensive lineman BJ Stevens and senior Mike Williams were selected to the All-PSAC West First-Team.

Sophomore punter Andrew Cerett, senior wide receiver Trey Johnson, junior return specialist Terrell Roberson, senior defensive lineman Noah Taylor, freshman defensive back Aaron Terry and senior defensive back CJ Townes were each honored on the All-PSAC West Second-Team.

Abercrombie received All-PSAC West honors for the second time in his career, earning second-team status last year. He started all 10 games this season and anchored an offensive line that helped Cal U average 360.1 yards of total offense and 28.5 points per game.

McDonald earned all-conference accolades for the fourth time in his career. He led the Vulcans and tied for ninth in the PSAC with a career-high 89 tackles (42 solo), while leading the league with three interception returns for touchdowns.

Stevens repeated as a first-team honoree while leading the team in both tackles for loss and sacks for the second-straight year. He set a career high with 61 stops and tied for sixth in the PSAC with 7.5 sacks, while becoming the school's all-time sack leader.

Williams also garnered first-team laurels for the second-straight year. He led the team and finished the season ranked seventh in the league with 848 receiving yards on 56 catches, including five touchdowns.

Cerett received All-PSAC West honors for the second time in his career after earning first-team merits last season. He finished second in the league and sixth in the country with an average of 43.1 yards per punt. Roberson finished third in the PSAC and ninth in the nation with an average of 30.0 yards per kickoff return.

Johnson totaled 38 receptions for 490 yards with three touchdowns to rank second on the team in all three categories. He also led the team in all-purpose yards for a consecutive season, finishing with 926 yards.

Taylor, younger brother of former Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor, set a career high with 60 tackles (19 solo) in his first year as a starter, while Townes ranked second on the team with 68 stops (35 solo) and three interceptions. Terry paced the team with four interceptions and added 36 tackles (23 solo) as a true freshman.
