Towson football trio honored by Phil Steele

Towson sophomore running back Terrance West (Northwestern) senior free safety Jordan Dangerfield and junior offensive tackle Eric Pike were named to the Phil Steele Magazine Football Championship Subdivision All-America team. West, who led the Colonial Athletic Association in rushing with 1,046 yards in 10 games, earned second-team honors. Dangerfield and Pike, a Landover native, were named to the fourth team. A starter in 10 games, Dangerfield was third on the team with 69 tackles and led the Tigers with six pass breakups. Pike has started 34 consecutive games on the offensive line, which allowed only 14 sacks in 11 games to rank 21st in the Football Championship Subdivision. In addition, 12 Tigers were named to Phil Steele's All-CAA team. Five Tigers were chosen to the All-CAA first team: West, Dangerfield, Pike, junior cornerback Jordan Love and junior offensive center Doug Shaw (Loyola). Junior offensive tackle Randall Harris of Largo, senior defensive end Frank Beltre, senior defensive end Romale Tucker and junior linebacker Monte Gaddis received second-team honors, while senior quarterback Grant Enders (Old Mill) freshman fullback Emmanuel Holder (Calvert Hall) and sophomore cornerback Tye Smith were picked to the third team.
