INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Senior LB Sean Horan and junior LS Connor Andras represent the Butler Bulldogs on the 2016 Preseason All-Pioneer Football League Team as selected by the league’s head coaches and announced Tuesday, July 26.

Horan, recognized as one of the PFL’s three linebackers selected, led the Bulldogs in tackles in 2015, being named first-team Academic All-Pioneer Football League, second-team All-Pioneer Football League, and receiving Butler’s Defensive MVP recognition. He was the recipient of the Bulldog Pride Award that best exemplifies The Butler Way.

Andras, a junior, is one of two long snappers on the preseason team. He earned honorable mention All-PFL in 2015. He also sees significant time along Butler’s defensive line.

Returning players who were selected to the league’s 2015 All-PFL Teams were placed automatically on the 2016 Preseason All-PFL team in order of voting. Fourteen First-Team All-PFL honorees return for the 2016 season. In addition, seven Second-Team All-PFL selections and nine honorable mention recipients from 2015 were elevated to the 2016 preseason squad.

The Bulldogs report to Indianapolis in early August to prepare for the 2016 season, which begins Saturday, Sept. 3 at Indiana State.
