Breitenstein Named Preseason All-America PDF Print
Written by Mike Kelly   
Thursday, 30 June 2011 18:21

Eric Breitenstein, who set a school rushing record at Wofford College last season, has been named a first-team Football Sub-division Championship Series Preseason All-America by Consensus Draft Services.

 

Breitenstein, a red-shirt junior (who played at Watauga High from 2004-07), led the Southern Conference in rushing yards (1,639) and touchdowns (22). The Terriers, thanks to Breitenstein, shared the Southern Conference championship with Appalachian State last season. The Terriers were eliminated by Georgia Southern in the FCS quarterfinals.
ASU had two players selected. Linebacker Tony Bachman was named second team; offensive lineman Matt Ruff was named honorable mention. In all, the SoCon had 16 players selected to the team. Linebacker Kadarron Anderson of Furman and offensive guard Rodney Austin of Elon joined Breitenstein on the first team; wide receiver Aaron Mellette of the Phoenix, defensive tackle Brent Russell of Georgia Southern joined Bachman of the Mountaineers on the second team; and defensive lineman Ameet Pall of Wofford College was was among ten players named honorable mention. Pall led the SoCon in sacks (12.5) and in tackles-for-loss (22.5)......Former Ole Miss quarterback Nathan Stanley has transferred to Southeastern Louisiana and is eligible immediately. Stanley completed 28-of-55 passes for 424 yards and four touchdowns during his two-year stay with the Rebels. A native of Tahlequah, Okla., Stanley is a a 6-foot-5, 215-pound junior........Defensive end Brad Smith of Montana State has ended his playing career because of lingering injuries. A red-shirt senior, Smith missed all of 2009 with a shoulder injury. He had 41 tackles, 9.5 tackles-for-loss and 3.5 quarterback sacks as a redshirt freshman in 2008.......And North Dakota State has given head coach Craig Bohl a five-year contract extension with a two-year roll over beginning in 2016. A two-time FCS Coach of the Year finalist, Bohl entering his ninth season is 61-30, which includes a 9-8 record against nationally-ranked FCS teams; the Bison are also 4-4 against FBS teams during the last five years. North Dakota State defeated Kansas in their season opener last year. The Bison also made the FCS playoffs for the first time in school history in 2010. They suffered an overtime loss to eventual national champion Eastern Washington in the quarterfinals......The Appalachian State Fanfest will be August 20 with Corey Smith in concert.
