Wilson Named to 2009 All-New England Team

Boston, Mass. (November 29) -- Saint Anselm sophomore wide receiver Marc Wilson (Farmington, Conn.) was named to the 2009 New England Football Writers Division II/III All-New England Team. In all, 31 players from 20 different institutions are represented on the All-New England Team.

Wilson earned Northeast-10 First Team All-Conference honors at wide receiver after being named the league's Freshman of the Year as a quarterback in 2008. Wilson led the Northeast-10 in receptions per game and all-purpose yards as he set four Saint Anselm single-season records and three single-game records in 2009. He caught a record 82 passes for 860 yards and seven touchdowns while racking up 1817 all-purpose yards in 10 games. In a narrow loss at Stonehill, Wilson piled up a school-record 299 all-purpose yards while tying a school record with 16 catches in the game.

Earlier in the season in a five-overtime win vs. Plymouth State, Wilson finished with a school-record 187 receiving yards. In addition, he also owns the Saint Anselm career record for all-purpose yards with 2,951 after just two seasons. Nationally, Wilson is third in Division II in receptions per game and ninth in the nation in all-purpose yards per game.

Wilson is the first Saint Anselm player named to the All-New England Team since two-time All-American Casey Larson in 2006.
