TUCSON, Ariz. (Jan. 11, 2012) - Former William and Mary standouts Alex Gottlieb and Jake Trantin will participate in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star game this Monday at 6 p.m. (PST) at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz. Both Gottlieb, a tight end, and Trantin, a linebacker, will be members of the Stars (East) roster.
Complete details about the contest, as well as ticket information, is available at the game's official website.
A two-time All-America selection, Gottlieb finished his career with 75 receptions for 905 yards with five touchdowns. Additionally, the two-time first-team all-conference honoree averaged 12.1 yards per reception during his four years at the College.
As a senior, Gottlieb ranked second on the team with 33 receptions for 424 yards with a touchdown, while his average of 12.8 yards per catch ranked just outside the league's top 10. He was especially productive in conference action, as he totaled 26 receptions for 332 yards and recorded multiple catches against all eight league opponents.
A starter for W&M during his entire career, Trantin recorded 250 tackles, 21 tackles for a loss, 4.5 sacks and four interceptions - one of which he returned for a touchdown in the NCAA opening round victory against Weber State in 2009.
After garnering preseason All-America honors this fall, Trantin posted a solid 2011 campaign in which he ranked second on the team with 84 tackles. One of his best efforts came at Delaware when he totaled a season-high 12 tackles, while he posted 10 stops in the season opener at Virginia and against Towson.
