Redlands player singled out

University of Redlands senior offensive lineman Travis McBride has been named to the D3football.com All-America Third Team for his contributions during the 2009 season.
 
On the heels of his D3football.com Second-Team All-West Region nod, McBride gains his first All-America honor of his career.
