Greensboro, N.C. (12/10/08) -- Guilford College senior receiver Kevin Vaughn earned First Team All-South Region honors from D3football.com Wednesday. A first-time all-region pick, Vaughn was the lone Guilford student and one of seven Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) competitors so honored this year. He becomes eligible for selection to D3football.com's All-America Teams, which will be released Dec. 20.
South region sports information directors and D3football.com staff made the all-star selections from a pool of 205 nominees. A total of 75 students were recognized.
Vaughn, a 2008 First Team All-ODAC pick, led Guilford with 76 receptions for 1,197 yards and 11 touchdowns in 10 games. He is ranked fifth nationally in receiving yards per game and 13th in receptions per game through contests of Dec. 6. Vaughn averaged 7.6 receptions and 119.7 receiving yards per game, both league highs. He also led ODAC receivers with 11 touchdowns and ranked fifth among the league's scoring leaders and sixth in all-purpose yards per game. Vaughn had 50 catches for 723 yards with seven scores in six ODAC games, including 15 grabs for 221 yards and two touchdowns at Randolph-Macon College, all career highs. He set a Guilford standard with eight games of at least 100 receiving yards and had contests with at least eight catches. Vaughn concluded his career ranked among Guilford's all-time leaders in receiving yards (3,007, 2nd), receptions (189, 5th) and touchdown catches (24, 5th).
Coach Kevin Kiesel's club finished with a 4-6 overall record (1-5 ODAC). The Quakers lose nine seniors from the 2008 team, including Vaughn, and expect as many as 43 letter winners back for the 2009 campaign.
