The 6-foot, 2-inch, 285-pounder was a four-year starter for the Blue Hens.

Kern, a Hens co-captain in 2017, is the first Delaware player to earn All-America notice by STATS (formerly The Sports Network) since Nick Boyle was honored in 2014. He is the first true center from Delaware honored since Kheon Hendricks earned All-America recognition by two different organizations following the 2008 campaign.

Kern earned first-team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors back in November. He earned second-team All-CAA mention in 2016 and third-team All-CAA laurels in 2015.

A management information systems major who is expected to graduate in May, Kern started each of his final 39 career games for the Blue Hens.

He was the anchor for an offensive line that helped Delaware rank No. 2 in the CAA in fewest sacks allowed (20) and rushing offense (192.5 yards per game) this past season, when the Hens went 7-4.
