Merrimack's Voegeli named first team All-American

NORTH ANDOVER – Merrimack football senior wide receiver Isaiah Voegeli received the highest postseason honor possible, being named 2012 Daktronics first team All-American.

“Being named All-American is a huge honor and I am extremely happy for Isaiah,” stated fifth-year head coach John Perry.

“He has worked as hard as anyone I have ever coached and he deserves all the recognition he is receiving.”

Voegeli, the Northeast-10 Conference Most Valuable Player, was the lone NE-10 representative on either the first or second team.

The Hyannis, Mass. native finished his senior season with the most impressive receiving season in school history.

Voegeli racked up a NE-10 record 108 catches for 1,500 yards and 14 touchdowns while earning All-Region and first team All-Conference honors.

The 1,500 yards was second most in NE-10 history and his average of 150.0 yards per game was good for tops in the country while his 14 touchdown catches ranked first in school history.

Voegeli broke the 100-yard plateau in seven of 10 games as a senior and set the NE-10 record for receiving yards in a game with 269 yards on 10 catches against Saint Anselm. Voegeli also racked up a career-best 17 catches for 264 yards against Pace.

His 10.8 catches per contest also ranked first in the country.

Voegeli leaves Merrimack as the school’s all-time leader in multiple receiving categories including catches (311) and yards (3,554) and ranks second all-time with 34 touchdown receptions.

Voegeli is the second Warrior to be named an All-American in the last three seasons, the other being current Indianapolis Colt, Shawn Loiseau.
