CLINTON, S.C. – Senior linebacker Colby Campbell has been named to the 2020-21 Stats Perform FCS All-America First Team, as announced Monday by Stats Perform. Senior wide receiver Keith Pearson earned second-team honors as well on Monday afternoon. The two teams boast 83 players that represent 45 schools at the FCS level.

It’s the first time Presbyterian has had an All-American since 2011 when Justin Bethel received the honor from multiple publications.

A top-three finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, Campbell led the Blue Hose with 96 tackles in seven games to rank second in FCS in tackles per game with 13.7. He recorded 10+ tackles in five of the aforementioned seven games including a DI school-record 25 stops in a 29-24 victory over Davidson on April 10 which earned him Stats Perform National Defensive Player of the Week honors.

Campbell, a unanimous selection to the PFL First-Team All-Conference, had 10+ solo stops in three games including 11 in the contest with Davidson on April 10. He totaled 7.0 tackles for loss with a stretch of three straight games of 2.0+ tackles for loss coming against San Diego, Stetson, and Davidson.

He concluded his Blue Hose career with 355 tackles which rank second in the PC DI record book. Campbell totaled 180 solo stops in his career which sits third in the same record book while ranking second with 175 assisted tackles. He holds the record in the Blue Hose DI record book with 32.0 tackles for loss while tying for the record of 13.0 sacks. 

Pearson, a unanimous selection to the PFL First-Team All-Conference, finished the spring with 65 catches for 831 yards and five touchdowns in seven games this past spring season. The catches and yards both rank second in the Blue Hose DI single-season record book as Pearson does hold the single-season catch record with 71 grabs in 2019.

He finished the spring with 9.29 catches per game which rank third in all of FCS while finishing third in the FCS ranks this spring with 118.7 receiving yards per game and fifth with his 831 yards receiving. He finished the year ninth in FCS with 133.86 all-purpose yards and 18th in the ranks with his five receiving touchdowns. 

He earned PFL special teams player of the week following the Blue Hose win over Morehead State and was named the league’s offensive player of the week after recording a school-record 15 grabs against Drake.
