AP chooses Vinson, Steeple

December 17, 1993|By Kent Baker

Towson State running back Tony Vinson and Morgan State defensive tackle Matt Steeple were selected to The Associated Press Division I-AA All-America football team yesterday.

For Vinson, who led the division in rushing (2,016 yards), all-purpose yards (2,073) and scoring (144 points), the selection adds to his collection of postseason honors. Earlier, he was chosen for the Kodak Division I-AA All-America team and was selected to play in the Senior Bowl.

A 6-foot-2, 227-pound senior from Newport News, Va., he leaves Towson with 15 school records and 11 Division I-AA records.

Steeple, from Baltimore's Northern High, was the one standout on a Morgan defense that gave up 32.6 points and 513.4 yards a game.

Steeple is the first football All-American at Morgan since Elvis Franks was named to the NCAA Division II team in 1979.
