Terrance West Named To First Team; Eric Pike, Jordan Love Named To Second Team

TOWSON, Md. – Junior running back Terrance West (Northwestern H.S./Baltimore, Md.) of Towson University leads a contingent of six Tigers who have been named to the FCS Pre-Season All-America team, announced by the Phil Steele FCS Preview Magazine.

West, who earned first team Pre-Season All-America honors for the second year in a row, was joined on the FCS Pre-Season All-America team by senior tackle Eric Pike (DuVal H.S./Lanham, Md.), senior cornerback Jordan Love (Deep Run H.S./Washington, D.C.), offensive tackle Randall Harris (DuVal H.S./Landover, Md.), offensive center Doug Shaw (Loyola Blakefield H.S./Woodbine, Md.) and junior cornerback Tye Smith (Wakefield H.S./Raleigh, N.C.).

Pike and Love were named to the FCS Pre-Season All-America second team while Harris, Shaw and Smith earned third team All-America honors.

The winner of the 2011 Jerry Rice Award, presented to the top freshman in FCS football, West has rushed for 2,340 yards and scored 44 touchdowns in his first two seasons. He was named first team All-Colonial Athletic Association as a freshman and sophomore and also earned All-American honors twice. As a freshman, West ran for 1,294 yards and scored a school record 29 touchdowns in 11 games. A Walter Camp All-American first team selection as a freshman, he averaged 6.7 yards per carry. As a sophomore, he rushed for 1,046 yards and scored 15 touchdowns.

A two-time All-CAA selection at left tackle, Pike has started all 34 games of his college. One of the best tackles ever to play for the Tigers, he has been a leader on the offensive line for the last three years.

A transfer from Georgia prior to last season, Love was named second team All-CAA in 2012. In 11 games, he made 35 tackles and broke up five passes. He also had two interceptions, including a game-clinching pickoff in overtime during Towson’s 34-27 win at Delaware.

In his first season as the Tigers’ right tackle, Harris earned first team All-CAA. He gave the Tigers the distinction of having both tackles on the All-CAA first team. Shaw earned second team All-CAA honors last year. He has been the Tigers’ starting center since the middle of the 2010 season and has started 27 of Towson’s last 28 games. Shaw was one of three Tiger linemen who was named All-CAA last season and was one of the captains of the 2012 Tigers.

A two-year starter at cornerback, Smith was a third team All-CAA selection last year. He led the Tigers with 75 tackles and intercepted one pass. He also broke up five passes, forced two fumbles and recovered a fumble.

The Tigers, who posted a 7-4 record last season against a very difficult schedule, shared the CAA championship with Villanova, New Hampshire and Richmond. Towson was the outright CAA champion in 2011.
