12 Football Tigers Named All-ODAC, Six First Team

FOREST, VA-The Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced today it's three all-conference teams with 12 Tigers earning All-ODAC honors including six First Team selections. The team saw seven offensive players selected and five defensive.

Washington and Lee's Scott Abell and Luke Heinsohn were named Coach and Offensive Player of the Year, respectively. Bridgewater's Joel Francis earned Defensive Player of the Year honors, Guilford's Matt Pawlowski was named the Rookie of the Year, and Emory & Henry's Kyle Boden was named the Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Earning First Team honors for the Tigers are sophomore quarterback Nash Nance (Calhoun, GA/Tennessee), sophomore wide receiver Holton Walker (Lynchburg, VA/Brookville), junior offensive lineman Will Ferrell (Blythewood, SC/Blythewood), sophomore kicker Max Antwerpes (Mainz, Germany/Kenston Forest), senior linebacker Kenny Fryman (Mechanicsville, VA/Hanover), and junior defensive back Steven Fogleman (Mechanicsville, VA/Hanover).

Senior running back Evan King (Lewisburg, WV/Episcopal), senior offensive lineman Tyler White (Mechanicsville, VA/Atlee), and senior defensive lineman Ray Jackson (Monkton, MD/Loyola) were named to the Second Team.

Senior h-back John Michael Sparagna (Mechanicsville, VA/Old Dominion), senior linebacker Alex Price (Fairfax, VA/Fairfax), and sophomore defensive back John Moore (Powhatan, VA/Blessed Sacrament-Huguenot) earned Third Team honors.

Nance, in his first year with the program, led the conference with 2,652 passing yards while averaging 265.2 yards-per-game. He completed just shy of 60 percent of his attempts with 208 completions on 347 attempts while tossing 24 touchdown passes to 12 interceptions. He also ran for four touchdowns including a 79-yard dash against Randolph-Macon. He was twice named ODAC Offensive Player of the Week.

Walker had one of the best seasons for a Hampden-Sydney receiver as his 1,262 receiving yards rank fourth best in school history, his 12 touchdowns are third best, and his 76 receptions were just shy of a top-five mark. Walker averaged 126.2 yards-per-game which was seventh best in the country.

Ferrell takes home First Team honors for the second straight year. The junior captain was the anchor of the offensive line that saw incredibly successful running days like Emory & Henry (246 rushing yards) and Guilford (257 rushing yards). Ferrell also helped the Tigers lead the conference in both scoring (36.5 ppg) and passing offense (271.8 pypg), and finish second in total offense (429.6 ypg).

Antwerpes had a successful year in his first stint as starting kicker. He finished the year 44-for-45 on extra point attempts and 9-of-13 on field goal attempts. He was a perfect 4-for-4 from 20-to-29 yards out and knocked in five of his seven attempts from 30-39 yards. His 97.8 percent accuracy on PATs was a league high.

Fryman, a 2012 team captain and 2011 First Team pick, led the defense with 114 total tackles on 56 solo and 58 assisted stops. He finished second in the league in total tackles and fourth in tackles-for-loss with 12.0 for -29 yards. The senior linebacker also notched one sack, one pass break up, and a forced fumble.

Fogleman, in his first full year back from injury, was second on the team and ninth in the ODAC with 83 tackles. The team captain also added 3.0 tackles-for-loss, 1.0 sack, and a team-high ten pass break ups. In addition, he forced one fumble. Fogleman also earned Second Team All-ODAC honors in 2010.

King led the Tigers' rushing attack with 837 yards on 175 carries. He also led the team and finished second in the ODAC with 17 total touchdowns (13 rush, four receiving) to average 10.4 points-per-game. In addition to his 837 rushing yards, he added 235 yards on 32 catches to finish the season with 1,072 all-purpose yards.

White entered his senior year a team captain and helped lead the offensive line from the left tackle position. White started in all ten games while helping the Tigers run one of the top offenses in the league.

Jackson was a fixture on the Tigers' defensive line and finished the season with 21 total tackles via nine solo stops and 12 assisted tackles. He also recorded four tackles for a loss of 20 yards and 2.5 sacks for a loss of 14.

Sparagna was named to the Third Team as an all-purpose back as he was one of the top blockers for the team, and gave the offense an added spark. In addition, he was second on the team in receptions (40) receiving yards (376), and receiving touchdowns (4). On the ground, he ran for 72 yards on ten carries with another touchdown.

Price was third on the team with 75 tackles with 27 solo/48 assisted. His 5.5 tackles for a loss of -15 yards were sixth best on the team and he added 1.0 sacks. In addition he had four pass break ups.

Moore proved to be a playmaker on the field with 62 total tackles on 35 solo and 27 assisted tackles. He did a bit of everything with 6.0 tackles-for-loss, 1.0 sacks, three pass break ups, one interception, and one fumble recovery. Moore also returned punts for the Tigers with an average of 14.2 yards-per-return on eight returns.
