PUEBLO, Colo. (GoThunderWolves.com - Dec. 14, 2011) - CSU-Pueblo seniors Kyle Major (Sr., Littleton, Colo.) and Lee Meisner (Sr., Sterling, Colo.) each earned second-team All-American honors by Daktronics, it was announced Wednesday.
Major, the ThunderWolves' placekicker for four years, owns all CSU-Pueblo scoring records and had a breakout season in 2011, finishing one behind the national lead for field goals made this season. He is the first kicker in ThunderWolf history to garner All-American status.
Meisner, who was previously named the Daktronics Super Region 3 Defensive Player of the Year, anchored a CSU-Pueblo defense that led the nation in points allowed per game (9.3 PPG). His four interceptions was among the top marks by linebackers in the nation.
With two ThunderWolves earning All-American honors, it marks the first time since 1982 that CSU-Pueblo has had more than one All-American in any given season. According to limited records available from the time, wide receiver John Trahan and offensive lineman Jeff England garnered All-American status.
