Waconia native and 2011 WHS alum Josh Sinnen was recently named the USA Football Networks’ Division III Preseason All-American honorable mention roster.

Sinnen, who plays football for the newly renamed University of Northwestern (Roseville, Minn.), was a first-team running back last season on the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference’s All-Conference list. In 2012, the 5-foot-11 rusher led all UMAC players with 764 yards. As a team, the Northwestern Eagles had 2,014 rushing yards. Sinnen, along with fellow first-team running back Chris Simon-Wallace (of Minnetonka), combined for 15 touchdowns last season.

Sinnen will be a junior this fall, majoring in business. The Eagles will begin training for the 2013 season Aug. 14-15, with their first game scheduled at St. Olaf on Sept. 7. The home opener will be Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. against Eureka College.
