PRINCETON, W.Va. - Coming off its best season since1992, the Shepherd College football team placed 11 players on the 1996 West Virginia Conference All-Star team, including four who earned first-team honors.
Senior defensive lineman Greg Stup became the sixth Shepherd player since 1982 to be named the conference's Defensive Player of the Year. His league-leading 13 sacks made him a near-unanimous choice.

Joining Stup on the first team were freshman running back Damian Beane, sophomore offensive lineman Brian Lamb, and junior linebacker Robert Mason.
