ASU players dominate All-America team

Appalachian State keeps gobbling up the hardware.

Quarterback Armanti Edwards and safety Mark LeGree were again first-team Football Championship Subdivision All-Americans, this time honored by The Sports Network. Also making the first team was Mountaineers middle linebacker Jacque Roman.

Cornerback Cortez Gilbert was on the second team, and linebacker Pierre Banks made the third unit. Offensive lineman Mario Acitelli, who played his prep football at Charlotte Catholic, was an honorable mention selection, as was tight end Ben Jorden, formerly of Charlotte Latin.

Edwards, of course, was the Walter Payton Award winner, given to the division's top offensive player.

Rodney Landers ate Edwards up stats wise this year. ASU is getting all the attention due to the win against Michigan last year. But the past is the past, and Rodney should have received his due this year

Armanti Edwards: 2,902 passing yards, 941 rushing yards and a SoCon-record 41 touchdowns responsible for (30 passing, 11 rushing). 170.19 pass-efficiency rating, 3,843 yards of total offense.

Rodney Landers: 1534 passing yards, 1770 rushing yards, 37 TDs (21 passing, 16 rushing), 170.7 passing efficiency, total offense 3304 yards.

Thats 4 more touchdowns and 500 more yards, in fewer games.

I'm sorry, you were saying...
