Congrats to Iron Spikes athlete Griffen Lord, who was voted pre-season All American!
It was announced earlier today that four University of Redlands football players landed on the 2014 USA College Football Preseason Division III All-America Teams. Senior offensive lineman Aaron Hinkle (Lodi, CA) represented the Bulldogs on the First Team, while senior linebacker Michael Tootle (Las Vegas, NV) and junior linebacker Griffin Lord (Upland, CA) collected Second-Team honors.
Despite being sidelined by injury last season, Lord gains this preseason honor based on previous contributions and high expectations for the coming year. In the final five outings of the 2012 season, he came on strong by recording four or more tackles in each game en route to 25 total hits on the year.
