Herman was named to the game after he earned All-MAC Second Team honors for the second straight season. The Oregon, Ohio native finished the 2012 season by starting in every game and finished his career by starting in 51 straight games. In 2012, Herman appeared in 796 plays on the season and graded out at a 1.88. He posted team highs in pancakes (128) and knockdowns (131).
