By KYLE SERBA
(STATS) North Carolina Central University senior safety Davanta Reynolds has been announced as a member of the STATS FCS Preseason All-America Team.
A native of Tucker, Georgia, Reynolds receives second-team recognition coming off a spectacular junior campaign. He was voted First-Team All-MEAC, named Associated Press FCS All-American as a member of the Third Team, and announced to 11th annual BOXTOROW All-America Team, honoring the top 29 players in HBCU football.
Last year Reynolds tied for second in the nation (FCS) with a conference-high six interceptions for 141 return yards and a touchdown (31-yard TD), while also returning a fumble 85 yards for a touchdown (featured on ESPN Top-10 Plays). The safety tallied 54 tackles (35 solo), including 2.5 stops for a loss with a sack, along with a forced fumble and a pass break-up.
On Friday (July 27), Reynolds was announced by the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference as the Preseason MEAC Defensive Player of the Year and a member of the Preseason All-MEAC First Team.
