Football Sees Four Offensive Players Named to Athlon Sports & Life Preseason All-Conference Teams
May 25, 2017

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Four Florida Atlantic University football players, from the offensive side of the ball, were named Preseason All-Conference by Athlon Sports & Life. The four offensive Owls are made up of two Woods, two offensive linemen and two seniors..

Sophomore running back "Motor" Devin Singletary and senior wide receiver Kalib Woods are the two skilled FAU playmakers to earn First Team honors. Singletary led the Owls as a true freshman with 1,021 yards on 152 attempts for an average of 6.5 yards per carry. He had multiple 100-yard rushing games, including more than 250 yards at Rice, and became the first FAU freshman to record 1,000 rushing yards in a season. The Deerfield Beach, Florida, native and American Heritage-Delray product had nine scores, all on the ground.

Woods, who hails from Jacksonville, Florida, and Duncan Fletcher High School, has led Owl receivers the last two seasons. He tallied 934 yards as a junior for an average of 77.8 yards per game and was credited with one score.

Junior lineman Reggie Bain, a Second Team honoree, will return to the field after missing all of 2016 recovering from a traffic accident. Bain, from Miami, Florida, and Miami-Central High School, was a 2014 Freshman All-American and a 2015 C-USA postseason selection. While Bain missed the 2016 season, Antonyo Woods was there to pick up a lot of the slack, seeing action at four different line positions. Woods, a Port St. Lucie native and product of Seminole Ridge High School, used the offseason to work at center and is expected to be the Owls' starting center in 2017. Once the Seminole Ridge High School product makes the start at center, he will become the first Owl to play every offensive line positon during his FAU collegiate career. Woods was named to Athlon's fourth team. Earlier this week, Woods was named to the Rimington Trophy Watch list, which recognizes the most outstanding FBS centers.

The defensive side of the ball will be highlighted on Friday.
