Jacksonville, Ala. – Jacksonville State’s DiMetrio Tyson, Tori Mobley and Jermaine Hough were all named to the All-Ohio Valley Conference football teams, announced by the conference office on Tuesday.
Tyson was named to the All-OVC first-team defense, while Mobley was named to the All-OVC second-team offense. Hough was named to the All-OVC newcomer team after a stellar freshman season.
“I’m very proud that these players all earned all-conference honors,” said JSU head coach Jack Crowe. “DeMetrio was our leader on defense, while Tori was one of our leaders up front on offense. Jermaine really stepped in as a true freshman and helped us on defense, and we are expecting big things from him in the future.”
Tyson, from Elba, started all 11 games on the Gamecock defensive line and finished with 29 tackles, including 19 solo stops. The senior led the team with 7 1/2 tackles for 34 yard loss, five quarterback hurries and he ranked eighth in the OVC after leading the Gamecocks with three sacks.
Mobley, from Columbus, Ga., started 10 games on the offensive line and graded better than 80 percent with five pancake blocks after playing 697 snaps. He helped lead a JSU rushing attack that averaged 191.0 yards per game to rank 27th nationally, and over 413 yards of total offense to rank 30th in the nation.
Hough, a native of Lovejoy, Ga., played in all 11 games as a true freshman and finished seventh on the team with 42 tackles, including 29 solo stops.
