Three Wildcat Football Players Named to Preseason All-Pioneer League Team
SAINT LOUIS –Three Wildcats were named to the Preseason All-Pioneer Football League Team, announced by the conference Monday.
Junior running back Wesley Dugger and senior offensive lineman Ethan Steinbacher made the offensive team with senior defensive tackle Bryce Perry-Martin landing on the Preseason All-PFL Defensive Team.
“We are excited for any and all preseason accolades for our program and players,” said head coach Scott Abell. “Wesley, Bryce and Ethan represent the team well and they, like all of us, realize that this is a recognition of our entire team and all our talented players.”
Players who were selected to the 2018 All-PFL Teams were automatically placed on the 2019 Preseason All-PFL Team in order of voting. Dugger is one of nine returning players to the league that earned first team honors in 2018.
The Henrico, Va., native returns to the Davidson backfield following a pair of 1,000-yard season including a 1,340-yard, 16 touchdown effort last season. Dugger needs 794 yards to break the all-time rushing record held by John Leverett (3,165).
Steinbacher returns as a veteran presence on the offensive line after a season in which Davidson led the nation in rushing.
Perry-Martin, a 2018 second teamer, returns after posting the league-lead in tackles for loss with 15.0 – 58 total stops.
Davidson opens 2019 camp Saturday, Aug. 3 at 9 a.m. at Richardson Stadium. The practice is open to the public.
