The accolades continue to accumulate for Southeast Missouri State senior linebacker Blake Peiffer.

Peiffer, already named the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year, was selected a third-team Football Championship Subdivision All-American by the Sports Network on Monday.

Peiffer, a graduate of Jackson High School, recorded 117 tackles during his final season with the Redhawks. It was the second consecutive year he finished with more than 100 tackles, and he ranks third on Southeast's career list with 359 tackles.

Peiffer has been named to two other All-American teams this year: College Sports Madness (first team) and College Sports (second team).
