Dunker, Robinson, Clark, Named STATS FCS All-American

NASHVILLE --- Three Tigers were named to the 2016 STATS FCS All-America Team on Tuesday. Seniors Jessamen Dunker and Ezra Robinson were placed on the Second Team, while junior Lane Clark was selected to the Third Team. It is the third All-American team for both Dunker and Clark; the second for Robinson.

Dunker played in all 11 games at left tackle for an offensive line which surrendered the least amount of sacks in the Ohio Valley Conference. Dunker has earned an invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl and was tagged as an early-to-mid round draft selection by several publications.

Robinson recorded five interceptions and eight pass breakups at cornerback. Robinson collected 42 tackles, 31 solo, and recorded two pick-sixes. The Sarasota, Fla. native will join Dunker at the Senior Bowl.

Clark led the nation with field goals made from beyond 40-yards and notched four of the five longest distances in FCS play. Clark accounted for 89 points, averaging 8.1 per game, in his third season with the Tigers.
