GRAND FORKS, N.D. - Last season, Greg Hardin earned Sports Network All-America honors for his receiving skills. This season, he doubled those honors with his all-purpose play.

Both The Sports Network and Associated Press named Hardin to their respective All-America Teams on Wednesday. Hardin landed on the third team as the all-purpose player for both organizations after setting a UND single-season record with 2,017 all-purpose yards in his final collegiate season.

For Hardin, he set career-highs in both receiving yards (1,153) and kickoff return yards (854) to warrant the accolades. His receiving yardage was the second-highest regular season total in school history and his 67 receptions were also a career-high.

The repeat first team All-Big Sky performer became the first player in UND history to record three kickoff returns for touchdowns when he took the third of his career back 99 yards for a touchdown at Idaho State on Oct. 5. It was the second-longest kickoff return in the UND annals and he also owns the third longest - a 98-yard vs. Southern Utah in 2012.

Hardin finished his career with 5,052 all-purpose yards, which is the third-highest total in school history. He broke Weston Dressler's overall UND record for career receiving yardage with 3,583.
