2008 Preseason All-Sun Belt Offense

Preseason Offensive Player of the Year
QB Rusty Smith, Florida Atlantic

Smith showed tremendous promise as a freshman, and then took his game to another level as a sophomore becoming the Sun Belt Player of the year completing 59% of his passes for 3,688 yards and 32 touchdowns with just nine interceptions. A steady, confident leader, he has an excellent arm and the 6-5, 215-pound size to be able to see the field and make the big play without much of a problem. Not a runner, he's a pro style passer who came up big in some of the biggest games. He bombed Minnesota for 463 yards and five touchdowns and threw for 336 yards and five scores against Memphis in the New Orleans Bowl. Now he's expected to take yet another step up in his production with all the key parts returning.

2008 Preseason All-Sun Belt
Defense

Preseason Defensive Player of the Year
LB Boris Lee, Troy
The 6-0, 212-pound junior made 82 tackles, two interceptions and a tackle for loss as the man in the middle of the Trojan defense. A great all-around playmaker who's all over the field against both the run and the pass, the first-team All-Sun Belt performer is a disruptive force who does a little of everything for the defense. He's always, always around the ball.
