Garcia Named SCIAC Defensive Player of the Year as Redlands Football Collects 13 All-SCIAC Awards

More news about: Redlands

The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) announced on Wednesday afternoon that the University of Redlands football program garnered 13 All-SCIAC selections, headlined by senior linebacker Jordan Garcia (Carlsbad, CA) as the 2012 Defensive Player of the Year. 

After landing on the First Team for his defensive efforts in each of the past two seasons, Garcia capped off a spectacular career with the Bulldogs with his Defensive Player of the Year recognition.  While leading the team in total tackles (64) and tackles-for-loss (6), he also notched one interception and recovered two fumbles during the team's seven conference games.  A captain of the team and the general of the Maroon and Gray defense, Garcia recorded 1.5 sacks and tallied three pass break-ups against SCIAC receivers.

In addition to Garcia's impressive accolade, the Bulldog defense earned a duo of First-Team nods, as junior defensive lineman Steven Locke Jr.(Barstow, CA) and senior defensive back Scott Payton (Sammamish, WA) both collected their first-ever All-Conference awards as Bulldogs. 

Locke ranked third on the team with 40 tackles during seven SCIAC contests, including 4.5 tackles-for-loss.  He also notched two sacks and three quarterback-hurries during the 2012 conference campaign. 

Payton racked up 38 total tackles in games against SCIAC foes, ranking fourth on the team in this category.  He also notched one tackle-for-loss and nabbed two interceptions, including one for a pick-six play.   

In addition, junior defensive lineman Daniel Kane (Covina, CA), senior linebacker Greyson Alman (Fontana, CA) and junior defensive back Brandon Morris (Mission Viejo, CA) each landed on the Second Team for defense. 

Kane earned his first-ever All-Conference honor after totaling 28 tackles in SCIAC competition, including one sack and two tackles-for-loss. 

Alman notched 24 total tackles, 14 of which were solo, against conference foes.  He also recorded two sacks and 3.5 tackles-for-loss during the seven-game SCIAC schedule. 

Morris, part of the spectacular secondary for the Bulldogs, was consistently a threat to opposing team's quarterbacks as he led the U of R with six interceptions, including one that he returned for the touchdown.  Moreover, Morris totaled 28 tackles, highlighted by 17 solo hits, while facing conference foes.

Representing the Redlands offense, senior quarterback Chad Hurst (Dixon, CA), senior offensive lineman Peter Kinney (Newport Beach, CA) and junior kicker Kevin Grady (Seattle, WA) each garnered First-Team All-SCIAC honors.

Hurst collects his second-consecutive All-SCIAC award, earning his inaugural First-Team honor in his second year as the Bulldogs' starter.  The catalyst for the Redlands offense, Hurst led the team to an impressive scoring output of 47.1 points per SCIAC contest.  Through the air, he completed 51% of his passes for 1,467 yards and 16 touchdowns in seven games.  Always a dual threat from the quarterback position, Hurst also rushed for 226 yards, scoring three times via the ground game against conference foes.

Kinney, also a two-time All-SCIAC recipient, garners his inaugural First-Team accolade of his four-year career at Redlands.  Integral in the Bulldogs' running game, he helped the squad to accumulate 1,940 yards from the line of scrimmage, averaging out to 277.1 yards per conference game.  Kinney was also key to the Maroon and Gray's league-leading 21 touchdowns during SCIAC competition.  Highly effective at keeping the opposing defenses at-bay, Kinney contributed to the offensive line that allowed a mere two sacks in conference play, marking the lowest total among the members. 

While tallying his second-straight First-Team All-SCIAC accolade, Grady led the conference kickers in scoring during the 2012 campaign, averaging 10.4 points per game for a total of 73 points in SCIAC competition.  As the Bulldogs' overall leading scoring, he connected on 14 field goals, including a long of 45 yards, to go along with 31 successful point-after-tries against conference foes.  On top of his offensive efforts, he provided 59 kick-offs en route to 3,542 yards for an average of 60.0 yards, highlighted by 20 touchbacks. 

Rounding out the Redlands All-SCIAC performers, senior running back Brad Crisanty (Granite Bay, CA), junior wide receiver Taylor Irwin(Rocklin, CA), junior tight end Daryl Andersen (Grand Terrace, CA) and senior offensive lineman Dylan Wood (Torrance, CA) represented the Bulldog offense on the Second Team.

Crisanty garners Second-Team laurels for the third-consecutive year with Redlands.  As the team's feature running back, he averaged a remarkable 6.6 yards per carry while accumulating a team-leading 996 yards from the line of scrimmage in seven conference games.  On top of his 142.3 yards per SCIAC game, he found the endzone on nine occasions.  Showing his versatility, Crisanty also served as one of the kick-off return men for the Maroon and Gray, averaging 36 yards per return and taking one to the house for 93 yards.

Irwin garners his second-ever All-SCIAC award, collecting his inaugural Second-Team honor in his third season with the Bulldogs.  During seven conference games, he led the squad in receptions with 35 en route to 400 total receiving yards.  Catching two touchdowns, Irwin averaged 57.1 total receiving yards per SCIAC contest and 11.4 yards per catch.  Additionally, he acted as a spark out of the backfield, carrying the ball seven times for 45 yards, notching a team-best 15 yards per carry.

In his first year with the Redlands football program, Andersen made an immediate impact on the offense.  Snagging 14 receptions, he averaged 21.5 yards per catch, totaling 301 yards on the conference campaign.  Andersen also caught the first three touchdowns of his football career, ranking third on the team in the process.

Earning his inaugural All-SCIAC honor, Wood was a key piece to the successful Redlands running game.  Helping the squad to average 277.1 yards per game on the ground for a total 1,940 yards, he saw Redlands running backs score a league-leading 21 touchdowns.  Talented at protecting the Bulldog quarterbacks, Wood was a key piece of the offensive line that allowed just two sacks during conference play, marking the lowest total in the SCIAC.

The Bulldogs put together a solid 6-3 season while finishing in second place in the SCIAC with a 6-1 record.
