WILTON, Conn., -- Wilton's Michael LaSala, a junior offensive lineman with Washington and Lee University, was named to the D3football.com All-America team on Friday evening.

LaSala earned third team All-America laurels from the website, the Generals' eighth All-America selection from D3football.com since it began releasing an All-America team in 1999.

LaSala has earned All-America honors from three different organizations in 2015, also garnering first team All-America laurels from the American Football Coaches Association and third team accolades on the AP Little All-America team. He was a first team All-ODAC and first team All-South Region selection earlier this fall.

LaSala was one of the engines that powered the nation's top rushing attack, as W&L led all of college football with an average of 433.9 rushing yards per game. He started all 11 games at tackle and helped the Generals set a slew of records, including total offense (5,439 yards), rushing offense (4,773 yards) and points scored (417).

During the season, W&L produced the three best single-game rushing performances in Old Dominion Athletic Conference history. W&L rushed for a school-record 649 yards in a season-opening 63-35 win over Averett and added 508 rushing yards against Emory & Henry and 506 against Bridgewater.

Washington and Lee finished the 2015 season with a 10-1 overall record. The Generals set a school record for wins and completed their first undefeated regular season in 54 years. W&L won the ODAC title advanced to the NCAA Tournament, where it fell to Thomas More (51-21) in the opening round.
