Bell rushed for 6,728 yards with 88 touchdowns along with 79 catches for 918 yards and eight touchdowns. His 8,055 all-purpose yards and 576 points place him ninth and fifth in NCAA history in any division.

Croner, a Howard product, posted 64 tackles with 11.5 stops for a loss and 3.5 sacks in 2009 earning him All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference honors. The 6-2, 279-pound defensive end transferred to Howard from Lackawanna Junior College in 2008.

Destin, a three-year letterman at Tulsa, led the defense with four interceptions in 2009. The 5-11, 191-pound defensive back was a member of the Golden Hurricanes team that captured back-to-back GMAC Bowl wins in 2008 and 2009.
