Cliff Eisenhut named to All-American team
Cliff Eisenhut '04
Senior kicker Cliff Eisenhut has been named to the third team on The Associated Press Little All-American team.
Eisenhut, a political science major from Mohawk, N.Y., connected on 16 of 21 field goal attempts and 18 of 19 point-after attempts to lead the Dutchmen in scoring for the second consecutive season. He was six of eight in field goals of 40 yards or longer, converting twice each at distances of 42 and 43 yards.
He was named last month as Special Teams Player of the Year by the Upstate Collegiate Athletic Association.
He becomes the 11th Union player to earn All-American honors in football, and only the second Union placekicker to be so recognized. In 1996, kicker Roger Egbert received the American Football Coaches Association and CoSIDA Academic All-American.
Eisenhut is also Union's first AP Little All-American since 1987 when defensive end Rich Romer got the award. Romer, who went on the play for the Cincinnati Bengals, also got the honor in 1986. Brian Cox received it in 1984, Tim Howell in 1983.
