Iowa football players Shaun Prater and Riley Reiff were named preseason All-Americans by Athlon Sports 2011 College Football magazine, according to a release.

Prater, a senior cornerback, was named to the second team, and junior offensive lineman Reiff made the third team. Both were listed as first-team All-Big Ten honorees as well. They were joined on the all-conference team by Hawkeyes Marcus Coker, Marvin McNutt, Markus Zusevics, James Morris, Mike Daniels, and Micah Hyde.

The university also announced that former offensive lineman Josh Koeppel was selected to represent the U.S. Men’s National team in the International Federation of American Football Senior World Championship. The eight-team tournament is held every four years; it will take place in Austria in early July.

The U.S. team, made up of 39 former college players, will begin the tournament on July 8 against Australia before facing Germany on July 10. The first round will conclude with a match against Mexico on July 12.

The tournament will conclude with its Gold Medal Game on July 16 in Vienna.
