    FCS ADA Release

    CLEVELAND - Southern Illinois junior tight end MyCole Pruitt has been selected to receive the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association’s (FCS ADA) inaugural All-America Award. He is one of only 11 student-athletes to receive the honor.

    Pruitt started the first 10 games of the season before missing the final two contests with a broken leg. He leads all FCS tight ends with 4.8 receptions per game. Among tight ends, he leads the Missouri Valley Football Conference and is third in the nation with 601 receiving yards. He is SIU’s all-time leader in career receptions (140) and receiving yards (1,740) by a tight end. Earlier this month he was named a first-team All-MVFC selection for the second year in a row.

    Voting was conducted by a national panel, consisting of media and sports information directors. From the 11 student-athletes selected, a national Offensive Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year will be announced at a later date and recognized at the National Championship Game in Freisco, Texas on Jan. 4 during an on-field presentation.
