CONWAY - Coastal Carolina Lorenzo Taliaferro has been named to a fourth All-American team as the College Sports Journal included the tailback on its annual Sweet 63 team.
College Sports Journal has once again answered the question, "What would a Football Championship Subdivision team would look like if you took the best 63 players and put them together on one squad?" by honoring the top performers from the 2013 season on its FCS All-America team.
Taliaferro was one of four running backs on the team as he ranked among the NCAA FCS top 36 in six categories including scoring (2nd), rushing touchdowns (3rd), rushing yards (3rd), rushing yards per game (12th), points responsible for (22nd) and all-purpose yards (36th).
He set 12 CCU single-season records and seven Big South single-season marks. Most notably, he shattered the Big South record for rushing TDS (27, breaking the previous record by six) and points (174, breaking the previous record by 36) while shattering the CCU single-season record for rushing yards in a season (1,729, breaking the previous mark by 622 yards).
