Sports Network Honors Russell on All-America Team
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A consensus All-American the past two seasons, it should be no surprise that Georgia Southern's Brent Russell (Comer, Ga.) was a Preseason FCS All-America by the Sports Network.
Russell, a first team selection by the website after the 2011 season, was again chosen to the preseason first team after posting a team-best 16.5 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks last season. The senior defensive tackle also finished fourth on the team with 67 tackles, two pass breakups and a blocked kick.
Russell and the Eagles get the 2012 season underway against Jacksonville on September 1st in the first of six home games at Paulson Stadium. Great seats remain for the upcoming campaign, and season tickets can by ordered by calling 1-800-GSU-WINS or by visiting gseagles.com.
