Football - Fri, Nov. 18, 2016

WEST POINT, Ga. – Point University cornerback Devonte Ellington (JR/Macon, GA) has been named to All-Sun Conference second team for the 2016 season.  The Skyhawks, coached by Julius Dixon, totaled five victories in 11 games and placed fourth in the Sun Conference standings with a 2-3 record.


Additionally, tight end Beau Beasley (JR/Jonesboro, GA) and offensive lineman Austin Hodge (SR/Cusseta, AL) earned positions on the Sun Conference All-Academic team.  A student-athlete must be a sophomore or higher in class standing with a 3.5 or better cumulative grade-point average to be eligible for All-Conference Academic recognition.


The All-Conference football teams featured 25 first-team selections and 26 second-team honorees.  All award winners are determined by a vote of the league's coaches.


Ellington totaled 21 tackles, including 17 solo stops, five pass break-ups and two interceptions, one against Mississippi College and the other in a conference clash against Webber International.  He recorded a season high of five tackles against Kennesaw State and equaled that total with five more, including a tackle for a two-yard loss, during a Sun Conference win at Edward Waters College.


Southeastern University (Fla.), the conference champion with an record of 6-2 and a conference record of 5-0, swept the three special awards, including running back Jarrell Reynolds, who was named Sun Conference Player of the Year; Keith Barefield, who was named Coach of the Year; and defensive lineman David Green, who received the Champion of Character Award.
