SAN DIEGO, Calif. - Head Coach Dale Lindsey was named to the College Sports Journal All-Freshman Team as their Coach of the Year, the publication announced on Friday. Lindsey led the Toreros to an 8-3 overall record in his first year as Head Coach and won eight of his last nine games.
"I think I’m a very luck guy first of all to be head coach at the University of San Diego. I’ve been blessed with very fine assistant coaches and great players who surrounded me to make me look good," Coach Lindsey said. "It’s all a tribute to them and has nothing to do with me. I’m just a very lucky guy."
Lindsey posted a 7-1 record in PFL play, with his only loss coming in double overtime at Dayton (45-38). 19 Toreros earned all-league honors, including 14 who were selected to the First or Second Team, which was the most in the PFL.
Under Lindsey's watch, senior quarterback Mason Millswas named PFL Offensive Player of the Year. Mills completed 66 percent (256-of-388) of his passes for 3,463 yards and 35 touchdowns while only throwing five interceptions. Mills' 35 regular season touchdown passes were the third most in the FCS. Mills also ranked among the nation's top 15 in passing efficiency (168.1, 5th), passing yards per game (314.8, 7th) and completion percentage (13th).
The Toreros ranked in the top ten nationally amongst FCS teams in nearly every offensive category. USD was second in team pass efficiency (169.1), fourth in third down conversions (49.6 percent), sixth in average time of possession (33:05), eighth in passing yards (328.3) and scoring offense per game (39.1) and ninth in total offense per game (487.2 yards).
