Dayton football can boast of more preseason Pioneer Football League all-conference picks than anyone else.
Seven Flyers are on the squad, which was released Tuesday.
That group includes linebacker Christopher Beaschler, cornerbacks Cameron Stubbs and Christian Searles on defense with tackle Jimmy Vogel representing the Dayton offense.
Flyers kicker William Will and punter Sean Smith also made the preseason squad after both making the postseason team last year. Will, the PFL’s leading scorer last year, is already a two-time first team All-PFL selection.
Searles also was picked to the preseason all-conference team as a return man.
Dayton returns 16 starters and both specialists from a team that shared the PFL title and made the FCS playoffs for the first time last season.
