John Santiago was named First Team All-Big Sky for the third-consecutive year.

That makes Santiago the fifth player in the 55-year history of the Big Sky Conference to earn a first-team accolade as a freshman, sophomore and junior at the same position.

Santiago led all of the FCS with 1,780 all-purpose yards during the 2017 season.

He had 717 rush yards on the season averaging 6.0 yards per carry which was the top among Big Sky rushers.

UND had other players receive recognition. Tank Harris and Tanner Palmborg both received third team honors while Brady Oliveira, Reid Taubenheim and John Santiago as a return specialist received honorable mention.
