ESPN released their midseason All America team on Monday, and two Texas A&M Aggies made the list. If you have been watching the games this season, you likely already know who they are: TE Jace Sternberger and P Braden Mann.
Sternberger leads the country in receiving yards (496) and touchdowns (6) for a tight end, including 145 yards and a touchdown this past weekend against the South Carolina Gamecocks. Most notably,
Braden Mann, meanwhile, has been putting on a show of his own. All you need to know about his season so far is that Mann’s four punts for an average 52.3 yards this past weekend actually BROUGHT DOWN his average for the season. Despite this, he still leads the nation in punting average by a wide margin, and is on track to have one of the greatest punting seasons in college football history. And much like Sternberger, Mann had one of the highlights of the South Carolina game, tackling a Gamecock punt returner and in the process leading to the Aggies’ first recovered fumble of the season.
