Two Cal (Pa.) football players were named American Football Coaches Association All-Americans on Wednesday.

Junior defensive back Lamont McPhatter II (New Castle) and junior offensive lineman Craig McCorkle were selected: McPhatter earned first-team honors and McCorkle was a second-team selection.

This is the first time in school history in which the Vulcans have featured multiple AFCA All-Americans.

McPhatter led the team and ranked third in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference with five interceptions. He led NCAA Division II, and ranked fourth among all NCAA divisions, with 198 interception return yards.

He finished third on the team with 63 tackles (37 solo) after tallying at least five stops in eight of nine games played. He also recorded 3.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two defensive touchdowns as a junior.

McCorkle started 10 games at left tackle this season after making a combined 19 starts at right tackle the previous two years. He is the team’s active leader with 30 career starts despite missing four games over the last two seasons due to injury.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
