Few would have faulted Towson's Terrance West for being angry after the junior running back finished third in the voting for the Walter Payton Award on Monday night, despite leading the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) in rushing and touchdowns. But with the No. 7 seed Tigers (12-2) still alive and preparing for Saturday's NCAA Division I Football Championship semifinal at No. 3 seed Eastern Washington (12-2), West was more than happy to miss out on the FCS' top individual honor if it meant winning a greater prize.

Gregg Frazier knew the Towson redshirt sophomore quarterback who struggled in the third quarter before scoring the game-winning touchdown against Eastern Washington last Saturday. As the youngest of three boys in his family, Connor Frazier - that quarterback - desperately wanted to play with his brothers, Gregg and Kyle, while growing up. They relented under one condition: no special exceptions for their brother, who is 8 years younger than Gregg and 3 years younger than Kyle. "He grew up with a football in his hand since he was just in diapers," said Gregg Frazier, a 28-year-old assistant football coach at Damascus High School in Montgomery County, where all three Frazier boys played and graduated.

The Towson football team has already set benchmarks that will be difficult to match or exceed in future years: a single-season record of 12 victories, two NCAA Football Championship Subdivision playoff wins and the program's first appearance in the tournament semifinals. But with little time between the No. 7 seed Tigers' 49-39 upset of No. 2 seed Eastern Illinois in a tournament quarterfinal Friday night and their game at No. 3 seed Eastern Washington on Saturday at 2 p.m., coach Rob Ambrose said there hasn't been much opportunity to sit back and enjoy the team's accomplishments.

The Towson Tigers are headed to the FCS championship game after a shocking comeback victory that featured an amazing performance from a very unlikely hero. Backup quarterback Connor Frazier was pressed into service when starter Peter Athens suffered what appeared to be a shoulder separation near the end of the first half. The Tigers were leading 21-7 at the time and appeared to be on the way to closing out the second quarter with another touchdown when a fumbled snap shifted the momentum dramatically.

With junior running back Terrance West and the Towson offense stealing most headlines, the Tigers' defense has been overlooked at times. That's fine with senior middle linebacker Monte Gaddis, whose seventh-seeded team faces No. 3 seed Eastern Washington on Saturday in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament semifinal. “We just keep doing our thing,” Gaddis said Monday morning during a conference call organized by the Colonial Athletic Association. “We just want to win the championship.

CHARLESTON, Ill. - Towson's Terrance West had no idea he had set a record. "I did? Records don't mean nothing. Our focus is on a national championship," he said. The junior running back rolled up an FCS playoff-record 354 yards and five touchdowns on 39 carries Friday night as the seventh-seeded Tigers advanced to the FCS semifinals with a 49-39 win over No. 2 Eastern Illinois at snowy O' Brien Field . West broke a 14-year-old record held by Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson , who rushed for 333 yards against Massachusetts in 1999.

When senior Peter Athens beat out sophomore Connor Frazier in the preseason to become the starting quarterback for the Towson football team, Frazier became the No. 2 guy on the depth chart. But that's not all he is. Frazier has lined up as a running back, H-back and wide receiver this season. And as the No. 7 seed Tigers (12-2) prepare to face No. 3 seed Eastern Washington (12-2) in NCAA Division I Football Championship semifinal this Saturday, Frazier is prepared to fill any role necessary.

Towson junior running back Terrance West has said all the right things since Monday night, when he finished last among the three finalists for the Walter Payton Award, which is given annually to the best player in the Football Championship Subdivision. But senior left tackle Eric Pike said he wouldn't be surprised if the snub gave West even more motivation heading into the No. 7 seed Tigers' game against No. 3 seed Eastern Washington in the NCAA tournament semifinals on Saturday.
