Thread: Athlon preseason all-SBC teams

  1. #1

    Default Athlon preseason all-SBC teams

    https://athlonsports.com/college-foo...onference-team

    Five of our front 7 on defense selected as well as Duncan.

    Selections on offense are (understandably) limited (Werts, Kennedy, King, Wilson).

    Regarding football Scheduling.

    I think entire Appy O-Line, 1st or 2nd team. Appy and LALA highly favored SB football teams. We got a number of 4th team’ers.

    We have just one player on offense selected on first, second and third teams. One out of a total of 33 selections.

    I watched our offense last year.

    Seems about right.

    Yup, a case could be made for WKIII or King to be higher, but that's about it. There's not much else on offense that I would put on 1st or 2nd team.

    Amazing how much an offensive line can impact the quality of the rest of a team.

    BINGO. Last two seasons Appy and LALA both had the best O-lines in SBC. You win in the trenches. Going into season we have ONE O-line guy named to SBC team and that is 4th team. Also, when in the world did they start naming 4th teams?

    but check out that 4th team selections. To me I’d photocopy the entire list and post it in the locker room.

    I understand the criteria used (average yards per punt last year), but I think Beck is underrated. First teamer = 44.2 per punt; Beck = 42.5 per punt with fewer touchbacks. I was amazed by Beck's placement and (I think) his ability to kick difficult to catch punts.

    The man caused multiple turnovers on his own.
