#94 Brooks Barbaree
A true team player, Barbaree has played both defensive line and tight end in his career, willingly doing what the coaches have asked of him to help the team. Over the past two seasons, Barbaree has also been a key cog on special teams, being the signal caller on punts and being a wing on PAT/field goals. Barbaree has seen his playing time go up along the defensive front in his final season, getting a sack at Liberty. His 3.5 career sacks, adding 2.5 as a freshman, ties for 17th on the CCU all-time list. With three games left, Barbaree has 49 career tackles with 7.5 tackles for loss, including those 3.5 sacks.

He has eight catches this season, including a 39-yard touchdown in the win over VMI. Boswell carries a career GPA of 3.04.
#74 Bryan Brooks
Brooks has played in every Coastal game — a total of 43 — since taking a redshirt in 2007. In 2008, he came off the bench to play right tackle in the first nine games of his career. Then, versus Gardner-Webb in week 10, Brooks was inserted into the starting lineup.

Brooks has helped pave the way for All-American Tommy Fraser and CCU record-setter Eric O’Neal, while providing protection for record setting quarterback Zach MacDowall.
#7 Jamie Childers
Childers is one of Coastal’s top athletes, starting at both quarterback (Towson, North Carolina A&T and Clemson in 2009 and Catawba in 2011) and tight end (eight times over the 2010-11 seasons) in his four-year career. His impressive senior season was sidelined in the VMI win as he suffered a knee injury that kept him out of the next three contests. However, he averaged 21.5 yards on his four receptions this season, while completing 13-of-24 passes (54.2) with three touchdowns and no interceptions. To date, Childers has completed 46-of-94 passes for 496 yards with four TDs, while catching 23 passes in two seasons for 304 yards and a score.

In his senior season to date, Davis has caught four passes for 50, including highlight reel snags in the Furman and Catawba games.
#18 David Duran
Duran had big expectations for his senior season, but an injury has put that on hold. A two-time first team All-Big South pick, Duran was named All-American as a junior after being one of the top pass-catching tight ends in the nation, catching 34 passes to rank fourth on the CCU single-season list. Heading into his final season, Duran needed just seven receptions to be the first Big South tight end with 60 career catches. He had five catches for 77 yards, playing sparingly in two of his first four games. It was determined Duran would need season-ending surgery, which he underwent on Nov. 1. He ranks sixth with 820 career receiving yards and his 58 career receptions is seventh on the CCU career list.
#83 Chris Floyd
For Floyd, persistence and hard work has paid off for a breakout senior season.

He had a career game with four receptions for 37 yards versus Gardner-Webb.

He needs just one more PBU this season to tie Quinton Teal for the CCU single-season mark, while seven more PBU this season will tie the NCAA all-time mark at 41. With 46 passes defended (PBU plus interceptions) in his career, Norman stands sixth on the NCAA all-time list and just two passes defended shy of Teal’s school and Big South records (48). This season, Norman leads the Chants in tackles (44) and his 178 career stops ranks eighth in school history.
