CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Senior offensive lineman Anthony Fabiano and senior tight end Ben Braunecker of the Harvard football team have been tabbed to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-Star team, it was announced Friday afternoon.

Braunecker earned first-team honors, while Fabiano was named to the second team.

A native of Ferdinand, Indiana, Braunecker, who will be playing in the upcoming NFLPA Collegiate Bowl Jan. 23, has also been named to the Associated Press, Walter Camp, STATS FCS and College Sports Madness All-America teams. He was a unanimous selection to the All-Ivy League team after pacing the Crimson with 48 receptions for 850 yards. Braunecker also caught eight touchdown passes and had four games with more than 100 receiving yards on the season. He concluded his career with 68 career receptions for 1,168 yards and 10 TD grabs.

Fabiano, a product of Wakefield, Massachusetts, was named to the All-Ivy League first team and the All-New England team after a standout senior season. Fabiano helped the Crimson average 36.4 points per game this fall, the highest mark in the Ivy League. Harvard also paced the Ancient Eight in total offense (474.2), passing offense (303.5) and rushing offense (170.7).

Harvard finished the 2015 season with a  9-1 overall record and 6-1 mark in the Ivy League, as the Crimson won a share of its third-straight conference title. Harvard defeated Yale for a program-record ninth-consecutive time, and the senior class finished with a record of 36-4, tying last year's class with the most victories for an Ancient Eight school in the Ivy era (since 1956).
