BLUFFTON — Standout TB and KR Calib Alexander (Ocala, Fla./St. John Lutheran) was one of 12 Bluffton University football players to be named All-Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference for the 2012 season.
In addition to Alexander, Bluffton placed four players on the first team, four on the second team and three honorable mention.
Alexander became just the second player in Bluffton history to earn Freshman of the Year in the HCAC, the first on the offensive side of the ball (Ryan Christy, a defensive back from Snellville, Ga., won in 2004). The freshman hauled in a 43-yard scoring strike from Tyler Wright (Troy) against Kenyon in his first collegiate game and never slowed down. He went for 445 yards on 117 carries with three rushing touchdowns, caught 10 passes for 189 yards (team-high 18.9 yards per catch) and averaged 25.2 yards per kick return.
