Nine Hens honored on all-CAA: Nine Delaware players were honored on the all-Colonial Athletic Association football team that was announced on Tuesday.

That group included five first-team-selections: Offensive lineman Mario Farinella, tight end Charles Scarff, safety Nasir Adderley, linebacker Troy Reeder and punter Nick Pritchard. That was the most first-team picks for Delaware since 2007.

Also honored were seniors Joe Walker, Noah Beh and Ray Jones, along with junior Cam Kitchen, all whom made All-CAA third team.

Scarff ended the regular season as the Blue Hens’ leading receiver with 40 catches, good for 462 yards and seven touchdowns. It’s the second-most TD catches by a tight end in school history.

Adderley earned his second-straight first-team accolade, ranking second on the team with 80 tackles and leading UD with four interceptions. He is the only player in FCS with 75 or more tackles and four or more INTs both this year and last year.

He also added seven pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Reeder also earned his second-straight first-team accolade, leading the CAA and ranking 10th in the country with 115 tackles, including 12.5 for a loss. He is the only player in FCS to have 115 or more tackles and 12 or more TFLs.

Pritchard led the league with a 42.2 yards per punt average, including landing 16 inside the 20. Of his 52 punts, 10 went for 50 or more yards, including a season-long 60-yarder.

Farinella and Beh were critical parts of the Hens’ offensive line that led the way for 15 rushing TDs and protected junior QB Pat Kehoe, who threw for almost 2,000 yards, the most by Delaware QB in nearly five seasons.
