Greenfield Named To AFCA FCS All-America First Team

WACO, Texas – South Dakota State offensive tackle Garret Greenfield was honored Friday as a first-team member of the 2021 Spring AFCA FCS Coaches’ All-America Team.

A sophomore right tackle from Rock Valley, Iowa, Greenfield earned a spot on his third All-America team this week as a key part of a Jackrabbit offensive unit averaging 30.1 points and 407.7 yards of total offense per game en route to advancing to this weekend’s Football Championship Subdivision national title game. Greenfield was a first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference honoree who earned MVFC Offensive Lineman of the Week recognition twice during the spring season.

Greenfield also was a first-team selection by Stats Perform and The Associated Press.

The American Football Coaches Association has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions.

South Dakota State, 8-1 overall, has advanced to the Football Championship Subdivision national championship game and will meet Sam Houston at 1 p.m. Sunday in Frisco, Texas. The game will be televised on ABC.
