  2019 GREAT LAKES VALLEY CONFERENCE SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Matt Cole, Sr., KR/PR, McKendree,...Cole earned the respect of the seven other GLVC coaches as the unanimous Special Teams Player of the Year. The Chicago, Illinois native led the GLVC and ranked fifth nationally in punt return touchdowns (1), sixth in combined kick returns (833), eighth in all-purpose yards per game (166.55) and kickoff return touchdowns (1), and 23rd in kickoff returns average (27.2). Earlier this season, Cole became the third player in program history with a punt return and kick return for a touchdown and finished his career with four combined special teams touchdowns (three kickoff returns, one punt return), which is second all-time in school history.

His 1,832 all-purpose yards this season rank first in school history, and he ranks second overall in career kick return yards (1,400) and fourth in kick returns (46) and all-purpose yards (3,583). The unanimous first-team All-GLVC return man was also a unanimous choice at wide receiver, following a year where he ranked 15th nationally in receiving touchdowns (12) and 24th in receiving yards (939), both of which were second-best in the league. Cole becomes McKendree's first-ever GLVC Special Teams Player of the Year honoree. - Great Lakes Valley Conference Football
