Callahan was one of just 25 players nationwide named an All-American by the AFCA, becoming the 15th Wolverine to be selected to the team. He extends Wesley football’s streak to 11 straight years with a player selected to the AFCA squad, the longest current streak in Division III football.

Callahan became the first NCAA Division III quarterback to throw for more than 5,000 yards in a single season, totaling 5,063 passing yards this year. The senior quarterback also threw for 55 touchdowns, the second-highest single-season total in NCAA Division III history.

He joins Hawaii’s Colt Brennan as the only NCAA quarterbacks among all divisions to ever throw for 5,000 yards or more and 55 touchdowns or more in a single season.
