Fort Hays State defensive end Sie Doe, Jr. was named to the D2CCA All-America First Team as a defensive lineman on Wednesday (Dec. 14). Doe now has two All-America First Team selections this season after receiving the same distinction from the AFCA. The D2CCA All-America Team is voted on by sports information directors across the nation.

Doe was one of four finalists for D2CCA National Defensive Player of the Year, but the honor went to fellow first team defensive lineman Lucky Baar of McKendree University. Baar finished the year with 17.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss while recording 55 tackles. Doe had 15 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss but made 26 more tackles than Baar with 81 for the season. Doe tied for second nationally in forced fumbles with five for the season, while Baar had two. Both Doe and Baar are also considered two of the top defensive linemen in the country by coaches as both were AFCA First Team All-America selections.

The 15 sacks for Doe set a new single-season school record, while he tied the FHSU career record of 21.5 also held by Trevell Smittick (1997-99).

Earlier this season, Doe was named the D2CCA Super Region 3 Defensive Player of the Year and the MIAA Defensive Player of the Year. Over two years at FHSU, Doe amassed 151 tackles, 34.5 tackles for loss, 21.5 sacks, and eight forced fumbles. He was an All-MIAA selection both years.
