When the wins and losses don't look impressive, it's hard to get recognition for many players in the postseason All Conference awards. While WNMU football didn't post the win total they wanted, twelve players received recognition in the Lone Star Conference awards.

Josh Powell, a freshman WR from St. Louis was named the Lone Star Freshman of the Year. Powell ranked third in most statistical categories, behind fellow Mustang Reggie Colson III. Powell caught 60 passes for 974 yards this year. He averaged 16.2 yards per reception and 81 yards per game. Powell was also named to the second team offense in the LSC.

For his efforts Colson III, a junior wide receiver, was named to the First Team Offensive squad. Reggie ranked second in the Lone Star in most statistical categories except two; he was first in total receptions (78) and receptions per game (6.5). Colson III amassed 1262 yards and 13 TDs in his first season with the Mustangs.

Joining Powell on the Second Team Offense were Tytus Timoteo and Isaac Crichton. Timoteo is a Jr offensive lineman that helped the Mustang offense improve in every aspect this season. Crichton, Jr. WR from Hawaii, grabbed 30 passes for 387 yards.

Earning Honorable Mention recognition were Chris Ulufale, Sr. offensive line; CJ Fowler, Jr QB; DeAndre Williams, Sr RB; James Lee, Sr DE; Roosevelt Calhoun, Sr LB; and Izell Price, Jr CB.
