Presbyterian College’s football program put two on the Stats Perform FCS All-America team.
Senior linebacker Colby Campbell made first team and senior wide receiver Keith Pearson second for the 4-3 Blue Hose, the last edition for deposed head coach Tommy Spangler.
The two teams totaled 83 players from 45 schools at the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) level. Presbyterian had not boasted an All-American since the 2011selection of Justin Bethel.
A top-3 finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, Campbell led the Blue Hose with 96 tackles in 7 games to rank second in the FCS in tackles per game with 13.7. He recorded 10-plus tackles in 5 games, including a modern-school-record 25 stops in a 29-24 victory over Davidson on April 10 that earned him Stats Perform National Defensive Player of the Week honors.
Pearson, a unanimous selection for PFL first-team all-conference, finished the spring with 65 catches for 831 yards and 5 touchdowns. The catches and yards both rank second in the D1 single-season school record book. He had 71 grabs in 2019.
Sophomore Jenna Greene is Big South softball pitcher of the week for the final week of the regular season. She earned a pair of complete-game wins in Presbyterian’s series victory over first-place Campbell.
Greene pitched a total of 15 innings in the series, giving up just 3 runs (1.40 ERA) and 7 hits (.143 opponents’ batting average), while registering 20 strikeouts.
