OMAHA — University of Nebraska-Omaha offensive lineman Ben Hochstein is now hauling in post-season honors after recently finishing  his collegiate career.
Hochstein was second in voting for the Gene Upshaw Division II lineman of the year award in the Northwest Region.
Hochstein, a Cedar Catholic graduate, earned two first-place and six second-place votes. Brandon Barnes of Grand Valley State University was the award recipient.
He is also one of five UN-O team members to make the Daktronics All-Northwest Region football team.

Hochstein, Brian McNeill, Rob Lewis, Jeff Souder and Randy Kush earned spots on the first team, while Jake Krause was named to the second team by a vote of the region’s sports information directors.
UNO’s six selections matches those of Central Washington and Hillsdale and the Mavericks’ five first-teamers are the most of any school.
The first-team picks are now eligible for the Daktronics All-America team which will be announced in mid-December.
Hochstein, a senior from Hartington, and senior safety Kush, from Gretna, were each named on 20 of the 23 ballots.
Hochstein is the son of Mick and Nancy Hochstein, rural Hartington.
