Former Norwell, Dwenger standouts honored

Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 7:09 am

Klay Fiechter set a University of Indianapolis rushing record this season. Andrew Mansaray helped lead the way. Both were rewarded Wednesday.

Fiechter was a unanimous selection at running back on the All-Great Lakes Valley Conference and Mansaray joined three other linemen teammates as a first-team all-conference pick.

Fiechter is a former Norwell High School player while Mansaray was a standout at Bishop Dwenger.

Indianapolis (9-2) was undefeated in conference play and Fiechter, a junior, set a school record with 1,436 yards rushing. He had eight games of more than 100 yards rushing, with a high of 196 against Kentucky Wesleyan. He was recently named one of 24 finalists for the Harlon Hill Trophy, awarded to the NCAA Division II Football Player of the Year.

Mansaray, a senior captain, was part of the line that ranked second in the nation in fewest sacks allowed, along with helping Fiechter to the school rushing record.

Indianapolis was also honored with the offensive player of the year (wide receiver Mar'quone Edmonds), special teams player of the year (Scott Miller) and coach of the year (Bob Bartolomeo). The Greyhounds play a first-round NCAA Division II playoff game against Midwestern State this Saturday.
