Football places nine on All-SAC Teams
Catawba placed nine players, including seven first team selections, on the 2005 All-South Atlantic Conference football team. The team was announced Monday by the league office. The Indians had five players on offense and three on defense with one special teams selection. On the offensive side, two Tribe record holders top the list as sophomore tailback Kory Fisher (New Bern, NC) and senior wide receiver Corey Ready (Aiken, SC) were first team picks. Fisher set a new school record with 1,079 rushing yards and totaled 11 touchdowns. He was the Tribe’s #3 receiver with 30 catches for 202 yards. Ready led the team this year with 50 catches for 590 yards. He finishes his career as Catawba’s all-time leading receiver with 190 catches.
Also earning first team honors on offense were sophomore tight end Shane Timmons (Denton, NC) and junior offensive lineman Will Reedy (Oviedo, FL). Senior tailback Mario Crowe (Charlotte, NC), who battled injuries all season, was a second team selection.
Sophomore defensive lineman Ron Ellington (Charlotte, NC) and junior linebacker Lester Sconyers (New Bern, NC) earned first team spots on defense, while Marcus Huntley (Morven, NC) was a second team selection. Ellington led the team with 10 sacks, including a record-breaking seven against Mars Hill. He totaled 50 tackles, with 18 for losses. Sconyers led the team with 91 tackles with an interception, three sacks and 14 stops for losses. Huntley was credited with 17 tackles, forced a fumble and made for hits for losses.
The final first team pick for Catawba was senior kicker Rush Rollins (Kannapolis, NC). Rollins led the team with 77 points scored. He connected on 15 of 18 field goals and made all 32 of his point-after attempts.
