Martin earns Freshman All-American honor
JOHNSON CITY – Redshirt sophomore defensive back Alijah Huzzie (Franklin, Ga.) picked up another All-American honor on Tuesday. A week after receiving the accolade by HERO Sports, Huzzie was tabbed first team FCS All-American by the Associated Press.
Huzzie, a first team all-Southern Conference selection, had an outstanding season for the Blue and Gold where he totaled 59 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, six interceptions, 16 pass break-ups and 22 passes defended. The Franklin, Ga. native started all 11 games for the Bucs in 2022 en route to leading all FCS players in passes defended and was third in interceptions per game, while his six interceptions were tied for second-most among FCS players at the end of the regular season.
Huzzie had career-high 12 tackles and a season-high five pass break-ups against Furman, while posting five or more tackles in six games. Huzzie recorded an interception in three straight games against Robert Morris, Chattanooga and VMI, while having a 38-yard interception return for a touchdown in the season-opening win over Mars Hill.
