After a breakout season at Sam Houston State in 2006, even more is expected from Hemphill native Blake Martin in 2007. The Bearkats senior has been named a division one football championship subdivision All American by College Sporting News. The former Hornet is a first team selection. One of four from the Southland Conference.
S.F.A.'s Damien Perkins is a happy man. Perkins is a second team All-American by Lindy's Magazine. The national magazine gave Perkins the honor after just one year of defensive experience. Perkins led the Southland conference in tackles last season after moving from running back.
