    Southern Illinois center Bryan Boemer was named to the College Sports News Fabulous Fifty All-America team on Tuesday. Boemer has now been named an All-American by three different outlets. Boemer is the sixth Salukis to be named to CSN's All-America team.

    Boemer was a captain for the Salukis in 2011 and led an offensive line that blocked for MVFC Newcomer of the Year Jewel Hampton. The Salukis averaged 183.1 yards per game rushing, ranking third in the conference, and SIU posted seven 200-yard rushing games in 2011. Boemer was named an All-Conference lineman for the third year in a row. He posted a 93 percent blocking percentage and didn't give up a sack all year.

    Seven players in the Missouri Valley Football Conference were named to the team, led by National Defensive Player of the year, L.J Fort (Northern Iowa). Boemer was one of two MVFC offensive players named to the first team, along with Indiana State's Shakir Bell.

    Boemer was named a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association and a second-team selection by the Associated Press.
