TOP RETURNEES
Five 1,000-yard rushers return for the 2012
season including the top two ground gainers from
a year ago Morehouse senior David Carter and
Elizabeth City State senior Daronte McNeill.
Carter rushed for a black-college best 1,495
yards, 145.9 per game, and scored 19 touchdowns.
McNeill amassed 1,647 yards and scored 22 TDs
to tie departed Winston-State senior Nic Cooper
for the lead in rushing scores.
Grambling's Dawrence Roberts (1,102
yards), N. C. A&T's Mike Mayhew (1,120) and
Alabama A&M's Ledarius Lacey (1.143) are
the others to top the 1,000-yard mark last season
who are back for 2012.
Chowan rising junior quarterback Cam Stover tops the leaders in returning passing yards per
game with 235.1 per game.
Winston-Salem State senior Kameron
Smith however had the most gaudy stats. Playing
in 14 games a year ago while leading the Rams to
the national seminals, Smith threw for a black
college best 2,706 yards and 33 TDs with only 10
interceptions.
The three 1,000-yard receivers from last season (Nick Andrews of Alabama State, Raphael
Amey of Kentucky State and Wallace Miles of
N. C. A&T) were all seniors. Of the returnees, Fort
Valley State senior-to-be Christopher Slaughter
was the closest with 947 yards, averaging 19.5
yards per catch.
St. Augustine's junior Brian Richards is the
leading returning pass-catcher after hauling in 63
or 7.0 per game a year ago.
