Senior Jaelan Sanford has earned additional postseason honors, receiving First-Team All-District 14 recognition from the National Basketball Coaches Association.


Sanford’s honor marks the eighth straight year at least one Rocket has been included on the all-district squad.

The National Basketball Coaches Association divides the nation into 25 districts and honors 10 players from each district, signifying a five-player first team and a five-player second team.

A 6-foot-4, 200-pound guard, Sanford earned first-team All-Mid-American Conference honors this season after being a second-team All-MAC selection a year ago.

Sanford paced the Rockets in scoring with 15.5 points per game and ranked second with 3.2 assists per game, a 1.7 assist/turnover ratio, 75 free throws made and 89 free throws attempted. He also ranked first in the MAC with an 84.3 free-throw percentage and topped the Rockets with 26 double-digit scoring contests.

He finished his career in fifth place on Toledo’s all-time scoring list with 1,789 points and fourth with 238 three-point field goals. He also started a school-record 133 straight games and tied Jordan Lauf and Nate Navigato for most games played in a career.
