November 27, 2012 at 11:28 AM

Kevin Hearon (Westfield, Jr.) intercepted a pass for a 16-yard return in Geneva, N.Y. on Saturday as Hobart defeated Wittenberg, 35-10, in second-round action of the NCAA Division 3 football playoffs. Hobart, which remains undefeated on the season at 12-0, takes its act on the road to St. Paul, Minn. this Saturday for a third-round game against the University of St. Thomas. Hearon also earned All-Liberty League honorable mention for his work in Hobart's defensive secondary this season. He is a cornerback out of Morristown-Beard.

Monmouth's Tyler George (Berkeley Heights, Sr.) is the All-Northeast Conference first team choice at tight end. George, a Gov. Livingston High grad, caught 28 passes this season for 215 yards, with one touchdown. Monmouth played to a 5-5 record this season.

Williams College placekicker Joe Mallock (West Orange, Jr.) is the All-New England Small College Athletic Conference first team choice at his position. He led the NESCAC with 11 field goals, three of which traveled over 40 yards to split the uprights. Williams went 4-4 this season.

Princeton offensive lineman Spenser Huston (Summit, Soph.) earned All-Ivy League second team honors. The Delbarton grad started every game at left tackle this season for the Tigers (5-5), who had the second-ranked scoring offense in the League. Huston even scored a touchdown against Brown in a play that was designed for him.

Coast Guard defensive end John Manganiello (Berkeley Heights, Sr.) earned All-New England Football Conference second team honors in the Bogan Division of the NEFC. The Gov. Livingston High product finished the season with 39 tackles (26 solo and four for a loss of yards), as well as a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Coast Guard's 5-4 record represents its first winning season since 2007.

Another recipient of NEFC plaudits is Mass.-Dartmouth's Edgar Osols (Summit, Sr.), who was the second team choice among Boyd Division schools at placekicker and punter. Osols, a Summit High grad, led the Corsairs in points scored (41) during a disappointing 1-10 season. He converted 10 of 13 field goal attempts, as well as 11 extra-point tries. His long field goal was a 45-yarder.

Greg Fontaina (Millburn, Sr.), an Ursinus defensive lineman, has made the All-Centennial Conference second team. Fontaina, a Millburn High alum, was part of a well-balanced defensive attack in which he made 40 tackles (26 solo) this season. Nine of his tackles landed behind the line of scrimmage, including sacks, for which he got credit for four and one-half. He also broke up two pass attempts, forced one fumble and recovered three fumbles for a total gain of 25 yards. The Bears completed a 6-4 season.

Muhlenberg's Greg DeLade (Chatham, Soph.) received All-Centennial honorable mention for his work on Muhlenberg's defensive line. The Chatham High product had a hand in 49 tackles (27 unassisted), six and one-half for loss of yards, including three and one-half sacks. The Mules wrapped up an 8-3 season.

Syracuse bid adieu to Big East football on Friday with a 38-20 win over Temple in Philadelphia. Tight end David Stevens (Short Hills, Sr.) of the Orange caught one pass for a six-yard gain. Syracuse (7-5) now has to see how the bowl scene shakes out to determine their season finale. Temple closed out a 4-7 season and defensive end Marcus Green (Scotch Plains, Sr.) called it a career with three tackles (two unassisted).

Colgate's Michael Watts (Summit, Jr.) had six tackles in the Raiders' 31-20 loss to Wagner in Staten Island, N.Y. on Saturday in first-round NCAA playoff action in the Football Championship Subdivision. Watts, a nose tackles out of Summit High, made four of those tackles without help and broke up a pass play. Colgate finished the season with an 8-4 record.
