CHICAGO - The Memphis Xplorers, who host the Rio Grande Valley Dorados in the National Conference Championship game on Friday, August 19 at 8:30 p.m. ET, landed a league best five players on the All-af2 First and Second Teams, the league office announced today. Overall, players from 18 of the league's 20 teams were selected to either the American or National Conference All-af2 First and Second Teams as voted on by the league's head coaches and beat writers.

The Xplorers First Team selections included lineman KHREEM SMITH and defensive specialist DAHNEL SINGFIELD. Offensive specialist KEVIN PRENTISS, wide receiver/defensive back TERRELL ADAMS and lineman JOSEPH CREAR earned Second Team honors.
