All-American status for Aggie Tos

By
July 28, 2010 |

Offensive tackle Mark Tos, a two-time All-Great West Conference selection, has been named a preseason All-American by both Phil SteeleÕs College Football Preview and The Sports Network, headlining several UC Davis football players to receive distinction with the 2010 season just around the corner.

Tos, a 6-foot-6, 290-pound senior from Hanford, was selected to the all-conference first team by the league’s coaches last season after helping the Aggies capture their first Great West Conference championship since 2005.

He has started 34 consecutive games, including all 11 during UC Davis’ 6-5 campaign in 2009.

The awards are his first preseason All-America honors.

The Sports Network, which administers the major awards for the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision, earlier named Tos one of its top 10 offensive linemen for the upcoming season.

He also was one of several Aggies to be recognized on SteeleÕs Preseason All-GWC team, including five on the first team and eight on the second.

The Hanford native is a product of Central Valley Christian, where he was named to the all-California team as a senior. Tos, majoring in international agricultural development, hopes to hoe a few rows for Aggie runners this fall.

His parents are Bill and Linda Tos; Bill Tos played basketball at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Joining Tos with first-team recognition are tight end Dean Rogers, offensive tackle Sean Davies, defensive end Eric Sobotka and kicker Sean Kelley.

Second-team selections included wide receiver Sean Creadick, running back Joe Trombetta, guard Ray Wilburn, defensive tackles Jacob Maxson and Andrew Benjamin, linebacker Dozie Amajoyi, safety Daniel Hart and punter Colton Schmidt.

UC Davis also was selected 39th in Phil SteeleÕs Preseason Top 40. William & Mary is the preseason No. 1 and is followed by Appalachian State, defending champion Villanova, Montana and Northern Iowa in the top five.

The Aggies open preseason drills Aug. 10 in preparation for their season-opener at California on Sept. 4. The home schedule begins with a visit from Portland State on Sept. 11.

UCD plays at the University of San Diego (Sept. 18), at Weber State (Sept. 25) and at San Jose State (Oct. 2) before returning home to meet South Dakota (Oct. 9), South Alabama (Oct. 23) and Southern Utah (Oct. 30).

ItÕs back on the road Nov. 6 at North Dakota, at Cal Poly on Nov. 13 and then home to host the Causeway Classic versus arch-rival Sacramento State on Nov. 20.
