ORONO – Two University of Maine football players have earned some big time preseason recognition.
Incoming seniors, Deshawn Stevens and Liam Dobson, have been named Hero Sports Preseason All-Americans.
Stevens, a linebacker, earned a spot on the second team, Dobson, an offensive lineman, placed on the third team.
Stevens’ 2019 season was cut short in the team’s opener when he suffered an achilles injury, while Dobson earned a Stats FCS All-America third team honor and all-conference first team nod last season.
Dobson was Maine’s highest graded offensive lineman last year.
