Eric Rasmussen, PFL North Divison Player of the Year
Rasmussen, a 6-3, 217-pound senior quarterback from Sacramento, Calif., currently leads the PFL in all of Division I in passing efficiency (174.5). He set new Torero single-season marks in passing yards (2,982 yards), pass completions (195) and touchdowns (35). He finished the season with just three interceptions in 318 pass attempts and threw for 200 or more yards in eight of his 10 games.
Martin, a 5-11, 180-pound senior defensive back from Springville, Ind., is the current Division I-AA leader in interceptions, recording eight in 11 games this season and finished as Butler's all-time leader with 17 career pass thefts. He also led the Bulldogs with 82 total tackles, including 71 solo stops.
Horne earns the PFL South's "Coach of the Year" honor after leading Valparaiso to a 7-4 mark and a share of the PFL North title with a 3-1 mark. The Crusaders will be competing in their first-ever conference championship game and enter that contest with a No. 7 ranking in the Sports Network I-AA Mid-Major poll.
PFL North co-champion San Diego landed eight first-team honorees including repeat first-team linebacker Andy Guzenski. Other repeat first-team selections were Drake running back Jonathan Taylor, Dayton offensive lineman Nate Moore and Dayton linebacker Brian Heizman.
