So, ranting aside about watch lists and preseason All-Americans, this list comes from a very reputable news organization. So that makes it newsworthy.
Kind of. Ish.
Eastern Illinois senior wide receiver Erik Lora, Tennessee State junior tight end A.C. Leonard, Tennessee State junior defensive back Steven Godbolt III and Murray State return specialist Walter Powell made the Sporting News preseason All-American list.
The site picked Eastern Illinois to repeat as champions. The Panthers were followed by Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State, Murray State, UT Martin, Tennessee Tech, Southeast Missouri, Tennessee State and Austin Peay.
