NASHVILLE, TENN. - Running back Trabis Ward, tight end A.C. Leonard and offensive lineman Rogers Gaines were selected to the 2012 BOXTOROW HBCU All-American Team on Monday.

Ward was second amongst all HBCU players in rushing (1,422) and led all HBCU players in rushing touchdowns (15), while leading all FCS rushers in carries (309). He averaged 4.6 yards per carry and rushed for more than 100 yards in nine games including six-straight.

Leonard, in his first season with TSU after transferring from Florida, was the tight end selection after catching 51 passes for 733 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games. The 733 yards were the most by a tight end at the FCS level this year and was the fourth most throughout all four divisions of college football (FBS, FCS, D-II and D-III). He led all HBCU tight ends in receptions, yards, yards per reception (14.4) and touchdowns.

Left tackle Gaines was a part of a TSU offensive line that led the Ohio Valley Conference in rushing at 175.7 yards per game. The senior did not give up a sack all season and graded out at a 93.6.

Offensive lineman Kadeem Edwards and cornerback Steven Godbolt III
were Honorable Mention selections. Godbolt picked off six passes in 10 games to finish first nationally in interceptions per game (0.60). He had two separate streaks during the 2012 season of three consecutive games with an interception.

The breakdown in representation from the conferences includes nine from the SWAC, six from the CIAA, five from the MEAC, four from the SIAC, and three from Tennessee State (OVC).

TSU finished the season 8-3, the most wins in an 11 game season since 2001.
