D2Football.com has announced the 50 players and the coach that have been selected to the 2010-2019 All-Decade Team.
To be eligible for the team, a student-athlete must have played during any season from 2010-2019 but must have completed his eligibility prior to the 2020 season. He must also have been named a D2Football.com All-American in that time period.
Former Albany State defensive lineman Grover Stewart and former Winston-Salem State linebacker Carlos Fields were both named to the second team.
At the time of publication, 35 of the players on the team had made an active roster in the NFL. Sixteen of the members of the team had been drafted by the NFL. Three members await the 2020 NFL Draft. While participation in professional leagues creeped into the deliberation process, the student-athletes are on this team because of their accomplishments on the collegiate football field.
There are four D2Football.com Offensive Players of the Year selections on the team. They are joined by five Defensive Player of the Year selections. Three players on the team earned four Harlon Hill Trophies.
Adam Dorrel was the obvious choice for the coach of the team. He won three national championships at Northwest Missouri and had a 76-8 record (.904). From 2013-2016, he won three championships and only lost two games.
The D2Football.com All-Decade Team was selected by the staff of D2Football.com with input from coaches across the country.
