Pioneers Place 11 on WVIAC All-Conference Football Team

Glenville State running back Rahmann Lee was named the WVIAC Offensive Freshman of the Year, he also was named to the WVIAC First Team Offense

Princeton, WV – Charleston senior running back Jordan Roberts and Concord junior inside linebacker Jake Lilly have been named the 2012 WVIAC Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year as selected by the league’s head coaches. The Golden Eagles’ Pat Kirkland has been tabbed the Coach of the Year.

The WVIAC coaches have also recognized Glenville State’s Rahmann Lee as the Offensive Freshman of the Year while Fairmont State’s Lance Fullwood earned the Defensive Freshman of the Year accolade.

Roberts, a native of Madison, W. Va., rushed for a league-best 1,572 yards and 18 touchdowns this season. He also led the way with a conference-best 197 all-purpose yards a game. Roberts also leads the WVIAC in scoring (122 points/11.1 ppg). His play led the Golden Eagles to a 9-2 record and a spot in the AFCA Top 25 earlier this year. In his last collegiate game, Roberts set NCAA records for most rushing yards in a quarter (190) and in a half (273). He ranks in the top 10 nationally in all-purpose yards (third), scoring (fourth) and rushing (sixth).

Lilly, a native of Bluefield, W. Va., led one of the better defenses in the conference. He registered a league-leading 126 tackles on the season, averaging 11.5 per game. He ranks sixth in the WVIAC in tackles for loss (13 for a loss of 44 yards). Lilly also had two interceptions, forced two fumbles and recorded six pass break-ups for the Mountain Lions. He tallied one sack on the season. Lilly’s 70 solo stops were the third most in the WVIAC and rank fifth nationally. He is also fourth in Division II for total tackles per game and fifth in solo tackles per game.

In his second season, Kirkland guided Charleston to a tie for second place in the WVIAC. He helped the Golden Eagles reach a top-25 ranking earlier this season. Kirkland’s team was selected to finish fourth in the WVIAC Preseason Poll. He led UC to a win over nationally-ranked UNC Pembroke by a 42-30 score. Several of Kirkland’s student-athletes are among the NCAA Division II leaders.

Lee, a native of Capitol Heights, Md., finished second in the WVIAC in rushing with an average of 123.4, ranking him 16th nationally. Lee averaged a staggering 7.2 yards per carry and had 13 touchdowns on the ground and one receiving. In the season finale, he recorded a 301-yard, five-touchdown performance, averaging 15.8 yards per carry.

Fullwood, a native of Little Orleans, Md., had a solid all-around campaign. He notched 38 total tackles, including 26 that were solo stops. Fullwood notched four tackles for a loss of 13 yards, including a sack for seven yards. He also picked off a pass and defended one.
