Three Eagles selected to The Sports Network Preseason All-America squad

Three Eastern Washington University seniors have been selected to The Sports Network Preseason All-America squad announced today. Steven Forgette and T.J. Lee were named to the second team and Ronnie Hamlin earned third team honors.

Forgette, Lee and Hamlin helped lead the Eagles to the semifinals of the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs as underclassmen in 2012. All three earned All-America accolades a year ago in leading Eastern to an 11-3 record overall and 7-1 in the Big Sky to share the league title with Montana State.

Forgette is a 2009 graduate of Heritage High School in Vancouver, Washington, and Lee graduated the same year from West Seattle High School. Hamlin is a senior from Lacey, Washington and graduated from Timberline High School in 2009.

The Sports Network Preseason All-America Team includes 98 players from 59 different schools and all 13 FCS conferences.
