The postseason accolades continue to roll in for Chadron State College senior linebacker Kevin Lindholm as he was named to the 2012 Daktronics All-America First Team Tuesday.

Lindholm, who was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year and recently placed on the Beyond Sports Network All-America First Team, finished his career with 299 tackles, the ninth most in school history. His 37.5 tackles for loss in his career ranks him fifth at CSC.
