Three Keydets named to Big South football first team


Staff Report

VMI’s George Handler, Tim Maypray and Marc Ray were named to the 2009 Big South Football All-Conference First Team, as released by the league office Tuesday.

Handler, a fifth-year senior offensive lineman, earned his second career All-Conference honor and initial First Team accolade. He was also named to the conference’s All-Academic team for the first time.

Maypray, who led the Big South in punt returns with a 12.9-yard average, was tabbed for his third consecutive All-Conference team, having now been voted a representative of the league at four different positions; wide receiver and kickoff returner in 2007, quarterback in 2008 and now punt returner this season.

Ray, who led the Big South in punting with a 38.9-yard-per-punt average, became the first Keydet punter to be named First Team All-Conference since 2002, when VMI was a member of the Southern Conference.
