Now to Football where University of Memphis Offensive Lineman Brandon Pearce earns Pre-Season First Team All Conference USA honors.
Number 71 here, the 6'6" 300 pound former Christian Brothers High star started 20 straight games at right tackle.
He only missed 2 snaps in 12-games last season..and is a key reason why Memphis gave up a C-USA low 14-sacks in 2006.
"I thought he was a great player coming out of high school but he was a string bean. Now he's a grown man. He not only a good player but he's also got a toughness to him. I think this is very deserving."
