JMU has athletes, ball carriers and CAA title hopes
5 PLAYERS TO WATCH
TYLER HOLMES, MASSACHUSETTS
Sr. | 6-0 | 220 | LB
The Blacksburg resident somehow got out of the state and landed in New England. The preseason Player of the Year on defense is athletic and relentless.
AARON CORP, RICHMOND
Sr. | 6-3 | 205 | QB
The transfer from Southern Cal is fully recovered after missing the last six games of 2010 with a knee injury. A big-time talent.
MATT EVANS, NEW HAMPSHIRE
Jr. | 6-0 | 225 | LB
The tackling machine led the CAA in solo tackles (79) and total stops (156). He finished fourth in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award.
ANDREW PIERCE, DELAWARE
Soph. | 5-11 | 200 | RB
The preseason Co-Player of the Year on offense, along with W&M's Jon Grimes, led the conference in rushing (1,655), carries (329) and touchdowns (14).
VIDAL NELSON, JAMES MADISON
Sr. | 5-11 | 205 | DB
He's one of the ringleaders of JMU's typically stout defense, which returns 10 starters. He finished third on the team with 70 tackles.
