Four Gustavus Adolphus football players have been named Second Team All-Conference by a vote of the league’s coaches. Sophomore Jordan Stolp (Mankato, Minn.) was named to the second team for the second year in a row, while senior tight end Jamie Germscheid (Madison Lake, Minn.), junior nose guard Nick David (Morristown, Minn.) and sophomore linebacker Jared Sieling (Watertown, Minn.) each brought home honors for the first time.
Stolp finished the season ranked third in the MIAC in passing yards averaging 185.3 passing yards per game. He hit 48.5% of his passes during the year hitting 163 of 336 passes for 1853 yards and 13 touchdowns. Stolp also performed the kicking duties for the Gusties this season, connecting on 20-of-21 PAT kicks and 6-of-10 field goals. Stolp’s best game of the season came in a 42-27 win over Augsburg when he completed 20-of-38 passes for 252 yards and five touchdowns. He also kicked all six extra points in the win.
Germscheid proved to be a vital part of a Gustie offense that ended the season winning three of their last five games. Spending much of the season as an extension of the Gustavus offensive line, Germscheid also worked his way into the passing game, catching at least one pass in every game except the season opener against Valley City State. He finished the year with 15 receptions for 178 yards and three touchdowns. Germscheid hauled in a season-high three passes for 32 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Augsburg.
David started every game during the 2005 season and finished as Gustavus’ third-leading tackler with 71 stops (34 solo, 37 assists). He also led the team with 9.5 tackles for loss, while also recording a pair of sacks.
Sieling wrapped up his season with a team-high 115 tackles (60 solo, 55 assists), fourth in the MIAC with an average of 11.5 per game. By reaching the 100-tackle plateau against Carleton, it marked the seventh consecutive season that a Gustavus defensive player has registered 100 or more tackles. Sieling picked up a season-high 17 tackles (11 solo, 6 assists) in a 41-14 loss to Saint John’s and was second on the team with eight tackles for loss.
