Four Middle Tennessee football players were named to the 2018 Preseason All-Conference USA.
The "Voice of the Blue Raiders," Chip Walters, has more on the players selected, as announced Monday:
Quarterback Brent Stockstill, receiver Ty Lee, lineman Chandler Brewer and linebacker Khalil Brooks were selected to the preseason team, which is voted on by the 14 C-USA head coaches, who can't vote for players on their team.
Stockstill, a redshirt senior, enters his final season ranked first nationally among active NCAA players in passing yards per game (288.7), second in total offense (9,265), third in passing yards (8,951) and eighth in passing efficiency. He also owns MT career records in passing yards (8,951), touchdown passes (77), 300-yard passing games (14), 400-yard passing games (2), passing yards per game (288.7) and completions (729).
Lee, a second team all-conference pick in 2017, had a league-leading 79 receptions for 955 yards and five touchdowns last season. The Moultrie, GA, native also had 109 yards rushing and is currently ranked fifth all-time at MT in receptions.
Brewer, out of Florence, AL, was a team captain last year while earning honorable mention all-league honors. He owns 36 career starts and has played 2,665 snaps.
Brooks is coming off a career year when he tallied 76 tackles to rank third on the team to go with 17.0 TFLs, 7.5 sacks, six hurries and a forced fumble. The Atlanta, GA, product earned second team all-conference honors.
