Bratton continues to pile up preseason awards

Rising senior Marcus Bratton continues to rack up award after award recognizing his on field accomplishments. The most recent award is yet another preseason All-American honor, this time the award comes from USA College Football as a first team return specialist.

The preseason honor is the second for Bratton who was named to the Beyond Sports Network preseason All-American team earlier this summer. In its 20th year, USA College Football selects pre and postseason All-American teams for NAIA, NCAA Division III, NCAA Division II, NCAA D-1AA, FCS, and FBS divisions.

Bratton returned three kicks for touchdowns as a junior while ranking ninth nationally in return yards per return (27.3) en route to earning a spot on the first team All Mid-South East squad. The Roanoke, Virginia native currently holds UVa-Wise single season and career records for return touchdowns while ranking second in school history in average yards per return for his career.
