BOSTON, Mass. - A trio of UMass seniors have been named to the New England Football Writers All-Star Team. Lineman Vladimir Ducasse, safety Jeromy Miles and fullback Chris Zardas were all named to the All-Star team. The trio were also named to the All-CAA First-Team in November.

Ducasse, who is expected to be an NFL Draft Pick in April, helped UMass' offensive line to be the fewest sacks in the CAA, giving up 1.55 per game. He also helped UMass to have seven games with 100-yard rushers.

Miles is also expected to get a strong look for a chance to play in the NFL. He had 62 tackles along with two interceptions and five passes defended as teams did not challenge him often.

Zardas played all 11 games blocking for UMass' tailback Tony Nelson and Jonathan Hernandez. He showed his versatile nature all season. He rushed 43 times for 164 yards and three touchdowns. He also had seven catches for 46 yards.
