Tory Langemo Named Cobber MVP, 7 others earn All-MIAC Honors

Cobber head coach Jim Christopherson announced today that eight Cobbers have earned All-MIAC Honors. Cobber MVP, receiver Tory Langemo (97, Litchfield), led the Cobbers with 943 yards on 44 catches and 577 yards on kick returns.

Halfback Eli Schuff, the 1995 MIAC rushing leader, finished third in MIAC rushing in 1996 with 960 yards. He tallied 2,331 yards rushing in his four year career.

Defensive tackle Jason Caron ('97, LaPorte, Bemidji) capped an outstanding career that included 213 career tackles and 22 sacks.

Joining Langemo, Schuff and Caron on the All-MIAC first team was tight end Nathan Merseth, ('97, Frazee). Merseth ended his career with 59 catches and 8 TDs.

Langemo, Schuff and Caron were first team All-MIAC Honorees in 1995 as well. Merseth was second team All-MIAC in 1995.

Cobbers earning second team All-MIAC honors were linebacker Ryan Sannes ('98, Breckenridge), defensive lineman Jeff Gronner ('98, Underwood), defensive back Tim Aadland ('97, Bismarck, N.D.) and offensive lineman Noah Caron ('98, Bemidji).

Sannes led the 1996 Cobbers in tackles with 72. Gronner was second in tackles with 66. Aadland, a team captain, ended his career with 83 tackles and 5 fumble recoveries. Caron, the "little" brother of Jason at 6-6, 280 lbs, helped the Cobbers finish second in MIAC rushing offense with 204 yards per game.

11/9/96

The Cobbers capped their 1996 season with a 36-26 win in the Metrodome over Carleton tonight. The win gives Concordia a 6-4 record overall, 6-3 in the MIAC and 4th place alone.

A Ryan Sannes 81-yard fumble return put the Cobbers up 26-7 at the half. Tory Langemo caught two TD passes, 6 catches in total for 172 yards. Eli Schuff gained 165 yards on 32 carries to end the year with 960 yards.
