DALLAS – Conference USA announced its 2019 football all-conference award winners on Tuesday, as voted on by the league's head football coaches, and Middle Tennessee had four players honored.

Junior safety Reed Blankenship earned second team recognition despite missing the final five games of the season with an injury. Blankenship, who ranked tied for first nationally in blocked kicks with two, was fourth on the team in tackles with 58 to go with two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.

Three players also earned honorable mention accolades in offensive linemen Robert Jones and Will Gilchrist, along with safety Jovante Moffatt.
