DURHAM, N.H. – University of New Hampshire senior defensive back Dino Vasso (Crum Lynne, Pa.) has been named a preseason football All-American by the FCS Senior Scout Bowl selection committee.  The FCS Senior Scout Bowl is a postseason all-star game showcasing the talent of senior players from the NCAA FCS Division I football level.  The bowl game is presented by the Collegiate Developmental Football League and will be held on Dec. 11, 2010, at the Joseph St. Lawrence Sports Complex Stadium in Ramapo, N.Y.

UNH senior defensive tackle Steve Young (Rochester, N.H.) was named a second-team preseason FCS Senior Scout Bowl Team All-American, and senior quarterback R.J. Toman (Mission Viejo, Calif.) received honorable mention.
 
The preseason team recognizes the achievements of senior players who are entering their final season on the FCS level.  The selection committee will review player performances throughout the 2010 season in a committed effort to bring 86 of the top players, represented in a North versus South format, to the New York city metropolitan area for the bowl game.

Vasso (5-9, 175), a team captain and fourth-year starter at cornerback, was named to the All-CAA First Team last week on the heels of a 2009 season in which he registered five interceptions, returning two for touchdowns, while racking up 76 tackles. 

Last season Young (6-4, 296) amassed 39 tackles, including six tackles for a loss, from his nose tackle position, highlighted by a career-high eight-tackle performance at William & Mary on Nov. 14.

Toman (6-1, 212) has thrown for 5,601 yards in his Wildcats career, fourth-most in school history.  The signal caller passed for 2,181 yards and 15 touchdowns in the '09 campaign and will serve as a captain in '10.
