Posted: Updated:
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (Dec. 9) -- Central Washington University senior quarterback Mike Reilly (Kalispell, Mont./Flathead HS) has been named to the Daktronics, Inc. Division II All-American First Team, announced Tuesday.

Joining Reilly as a Daktronics All-American was tight end Jared Bronson (Kent/Thomas Jefferson HS), who was named as a second team All-American.

Reilly, who is one of three national finalists for the Harlon Hill award as the top player in Division II football, finished his senior campaign by throwing for 3,706 yards with 37 touchdowns and six interceptions. He completed 65.2 percent of his passes, was ranked among the top six in Division II in all major passing categories, and set numerous school and conference records. He was also a first team all-Super Regional Four selection after garnering Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year accolades.

Bronson was a second team All-American after ranking second on the Wildcats with 502 receiving yards and listing fourth on the team with 28 catches. He accomplished those numbers despite missing more than 4 1/2 games due to injury, but saved his best collegiate game for last when he racked up 169 receiving yards on eight catches in a first-round playoff loss at West Texas A&M on Nov. 15.

The team, which is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged leader in scoring, timing, and programmable display systems, is voted on by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
