Five Sam Houston State Bearkats earned preseason all-America honors as announced by STATS FCS officials on Monday. Quarterback Jeremiah Briscoe and defensive lineman P.J. Hall were each named to the first team, while running back Corey Avery earned a second team nod. Additionally, wide receiver Yediah Louis and offensive lineman Tyler Tezeno were each placed on the third team. For Briscoe and Hall, the honors are just the latest in in their plethora of awards in the last year.

Briscoe enters his senior season and second year at the helm of the Bearkat offense on the heels of a record-setting season that saw him claim the Walter Payton Award as the top individual offensive player in the FCS. The Houston native and Southland Conference Player of the Year threw for 4,602 yards and an FCS record 57 touchdowns as a junior, spreading those 57 scores among a dozen different receivers. He threw for at least 300 yards in 11 of 13 games and a minimum of three scores in each of the first 12 games, twice setting a new school record with seven touchdown throws.
