Football places six on All-South Region Team

   Catawba College placed six players on the 2001 Daktronics NCAA Division II All-South Region Football Team selected by members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).  In all, 25 schools from the South Region are represented.  Gulf South Conference Champion Valdosta State placed the most on the team (7), including a team-high five First Team selections.  South Atlantic Conference Champion Catawba and West Georgia tied for second place honors (6).  Players selected to the All-Region First Team are eligible for the Daktronics NCAA Division II All-America Team. This is the only Division II All-America Team selected by a vote of all Division II members.    Junior linebacker Todd McComb (Thomasville, NC) was one of three players to earn All-South Region First Team honors for the third consecutive year.  Also claiming that honor were Mars Hill linebacker Khalid Abdullah and West Georgia safety Nate Coggins.

    McComb was a Second Team All-SAC selection, finishing the regular season with a team-leading 85 tackles, including nine tackles for loss (three sacks).  He eclipsed the 100 tackle mark with the Tribe's three playoff games, finishing with 105 stops, including 13 for losses and four sacks.

    Joining McComb as a first team linebacker was Shawn Sanders (Raleigh, NC), the SAC Defensive Player of the Year.  Sanders finished second to McComb in tackles with 84 and had 17 for losses and 4.5 sacks.  Senior Matt Gross (Hendersonville, NC) was the first team kicker, connecting on 16 of 25 field goals this season and totaling 92 points, while sophomore Cole Beane (Belmont, NC) was a first team selection as an offensive guard.

    Earning second team honors was senior safety Corey Reese (Dunwoody, GA) and junior wide receiver Nick Means (Thomasville, NC).  Reese registered 59 tackles on the season and recorded three interceptions.  Means caught 54 passes for 807 yards and seven scores, moving within just 78 yards of equaling Ike Hill's school record for career receiving yards.
