University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh quarterback Nate Wara has received NCAA
Division III All-America honors by the American Football Coaches Association. Wara is the first Oshkosh Titan player to be recognized since the AFCA All-America program began in 1945.
Two other Wisconsin players were named to the All-America team. That list includes punter Christian Hallingstad of UW-La Crosse and defensive back Ryan McWethy of UW-Platteville.
Wara totaled 4,051 yards and 40 touchdowns as the leader of UW-Oshkosh’s record-breaking offense. He started all 44 games the past four years, leading the Titans to a 28-16 overall record.
Wara ranks second in WIAC history in total offense (11,202 yards) and 13th in NCAA Division III history. He’s one of four finalists for the Gagliardi Trophy for National Player of the Year. The winner of that award will be announced in Salem, Virginia today.
