Lots of well deserved accolades and recognitions are coming in for one senior linebacker in Orangeburg. SC State's Darius Leonard is an All-American.

The senior linebacker was named to the FCS All-First Team defense by the Associated Press this afternoon.

The Lake View native repeated as MEAC defensive player of the year after leading the conference in tackles. He ranks fourth in the FCS in that category with 113 on the year. He also added seven sacks and two interceptions this year.

Leonard leaves SC State as the all-time leader in tackles. He'll be playing on Sundays.
