Cabral, Paulson, Sloan and Beltran Named All-East

Josh Cabral

Dec. 18, 2012

Navy senior offensive linemen Josh Cabral and Ryan Paulson, sophomore punter Pablo Beltran and freshman kicker Nick Sloan have been named All-East by the Football Bowl Subdivision Head Coaches along the Eastern Seaboard.

Cabral (guard) and Paulson (tackle) anchored an offensive line that helped the Mids average 275.6 yards per game on the ground, which ranked sixth nationally.  Cabral has been a three-year starter for the Mids, while Paulson started for the first time on the offensive line after spending his first three seasons on offense.

Beltran is averaging 43.9 yards per punt on his 40 punts this year with 15 of his 40 punts being fair caught and 17 have been downed inside the 20-yard line.  He has 11 punts this year of 50 yards or more and his 43.9 yard average is the second best average in a single-season in school history.

Sloan has been rock solid for the Mids all year, making 10 of his 14 field goals and all 37 of his extra-points.  His 37 extra-points are the sixth most in school history. He is the first freshman to start at kicker for Navy since 1996 and is one of just 13 true freshman kickers starting in the FBS.
