Tyler Renew is poised for a big senior season with the Citadel Bulldogs and Wednesday saw the former Ben Lippen Falcon receive a preseason honor.

Renew has been named to the Southern Conference Preseason All-Conference Second Team. Renew was The Citadel's second leading rusher in 2015 with 839 yards. He also scored five touchdowns as one of the lead backs in the Bulldogs' triple-option attack.

The Citadel was picked to finish second in the league behind Chattanooga according to the preseason poll released Wednesday during the Southern Conference Media Day in Spartanburg. The Bulldogs received one first place vote to Chattanooga's seven.

Sanford, which also received a first place vote, was picked to finish third. Western Carolina, Mercer, Wofford, Furman, VMI and ETSU round out the poll.
