Austell named to CFA Yearbook's 2016 FCS Starting Lineup

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Erik Austell added another preseason accolade on Monday morning as the senior offensive tackle was recognized to the College Football America Yearbook's 2016 FCS Starting Lineup.

Austell was the lone representative from the Big South Conference to earn the award as the Warner Robins, Ga., native was named to CFA's Preseason All-America Team.  Austell has also been recognized as a 2016 STATS FCS Preseason First Team All-American selection and a preseason all-conference selection

Austell, a three-year starter at left tackle, was named a STATS FCS Second Team All-American in 2015. The redshirt senior has been a key cog for a CSU offense that has ranked among the nation's top-20 in rushing throughout his career.

Austell helped Christian Reyes become the program's all-time leading rusher in just two years and was an essential part of a unit that led the country in time of possession in 2013 and 2014. He is returning from an injury that sidelined him for the final four games of 2015.
