CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard football freshman running back Aidan Borguet and sophomore safety James Herring have earned All-America recognition from HERO Sports. Borguet landed on the Freshman Honorable Mention All-America squad, while Herring was voted to the Sophomore All-America First Team for his special teams work.
Borguet, the 2019 Ivy League Rookie of the Year, played in all 10 games, rushing for 645 yards and a team-high-tying seven touchdowns. A native of Franklinville, New Jersey, Borguet enjoyed his best game at Yale where he gained 269 yards on 11 carries and scored four touchdowns.
Herring, meanwhile, was part of a stellar special teams unit that was one of the best in the country. A sophomore from Dallas, Texas, Herring blocked three kicks, including two vs. Cornell. Herring's three blocked kicks currently ranks tied for second nationally and contributed to Harvard's nine on the season, which is tied for first in the FCS.
The pair of All-America awards comes a week after senior defensive lineman Brogan McPartland was named to the 2019 Academic All-America Division I Football Second Team, selected by CoSIDA.
