Neuzil, Jean-Charles Named Sporting News All-Americans

 

BOONE, N.C. — Add the Sporting News to the list of All-America honors for Shemar Jean-Charles and Ryan Neuzil.

Jean-Charles, a senior cornerback, and Neuzil, a senior offensive guard, were named second-team All-Americans by the Sporting News on Tuesday. They received similar recognition from the PFF College site last week.

With App State’s 9-3 season complete, Jean-Charles leads the nation with 16 PBUs and 17 passes defended. After a 56-28 bowl win, the Mountaineers remain the only FBS team allowing their opponents to complete less than 50 percent of their passes (47.9 percent).

According to PFF, Jean-Charles had the rare accomplishment of posting an identical forced incompletion rate and catch-allowed rate (33.3%) on 50-plus targets this season.

Neuzil started the last 44 games of his college career at left guard and was the top-ranked Sun Belt offensive lineman in 2020, according to PFF. which gave him a run-block grade of 85.6. He had 50 knockdown blocks during the regular season and helped App State rush for 500 yards in the bowl victory against North Texas.
