"In viewing the conference over the last ten years, as a coach I have the utmost respect for any player who receives this recognition," stated Head Coach Alan Heverly. "I was fortunate enough to be an assistant coach when Ian played at Moravian, and to have coached Matt and John as seniors. All are great athletes. The level of play demonstrated by all the conference players named is something for which both Moravian and the Landmark Conference can be exceedingly proud."
