Russell, Minor, Tarrance make All-Commonwealth team
Three Campbellsville Fighting Tigers named to the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame All-Commonwealth team
By Jordan Alves, Campbellsville University Sports Information
Louisville, KY -- For the second-straight season, three Campbellsville University Fighting Tigers were named to the 2015 All-Commonwealth football team officials announced at the banquet on June 26 at the Brown Theatre in Louisville, Ky.
Jacob Russell, Percy Minor and Dekwain Tarrance represented Campbellsville on the 2015 team, giving CU 11 recognitions since the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame started the All-Commonwealth Team in 2010 to recognize young players at a local level.
Calvin Bini was named to the first team in 2011 following the 2010 season, while Wayne Coffee and Stan Warrenhuffman were first team selections in 2012. Blake Young and Nick Reed were honorable mentions in 2013 and in 2014, Young, Jarrod Harrington and Tarrance were honored.
Tarrance, a defensive lineman from Louisville, Ky., led the line with 50 tackles, including 26 solo tackles and 4.5 for a loss, and one fumble recovery while being named to the team as a sophomore. In 2014, the defensive line was more balanced and Tarrance recorded 40 tackles, including 17 solo and a team leading 15.5 tackles for loss. He also led the Fighting Tigers with 8.5 sacks.
Minor and Russell are being named to the team for the first time in their career.
Minor led the Tigers with five interceptions in 2014 ranking him 19th in the NAIA. Minor was also ranked fourth on the team in total tackles with 56 (33 solo and 23 assisted).
Russell, a rising senior from Lawrenceburg, Ky., found a home at Campbellsville University in 2014. He transferred from the University of Kentucky in December of 2013 to play baseball and football at CU. After one season swinging the bat for the Tigers and being named to the All-Mid-South Conference, Russell decided to focus all of his attentions to the gridiron and it paid off. In just one season running the Fighting Tigers offense, the quarterback broke 10 single-season records and helped break three more team records.
Individual Records broken by Russell:
There were a total of 41 members be named to the All-Commonwealth team. They are as followed:
