James Madison University tight end and 2014 Strasburg graduate Jonathan Kloosterman was one of four Dukes named to the STATS Football Championship Subdivision Preseason All-American team.

Stennie started all 15 games last season at left tackle. He was part of an offensive line that set JMU and CAA single-season records in rushing offense (4,125), total offense (7,612), first downs (380) and scoring (700).

Ankrah had 44 tackles, including 22 solo, last season. He had 6 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. Ankrah also forced a fumble, had three pass breakups and two quarterback hurries.

Greene had 70 tackles, including 34 solo, last season. He led the team with six interceptions, and had one fumble recovery and seven pass breakups. Greene was tied for fourth in JMU single-season history in interceptions, and was second in the CAA for the season.
