Two Highland Football Players Named All-Americans
Two members of Coach Aaron Arnold’s football team at Highland Community College have been named to NJCAA All-American teams. Tyree Horton (South Dade, FL), a 6’1”, 216 pound linebacker, was named to the First Team, and 6’5” 265 pound defensive lineman Joe Sanders (LaGrange, GA) earned Honorable Mention honors.
After verbally committing to Florida State after last season, Horton entered this season as top-rated linebacker and subsequently decided to take visits to Big 12 teams after being named the Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the Jayhawk Conference this season. He finished the year with 88 tackles, including 19 and a half of those for loss, and had 9 and a half sacks.
Sanders had 72 tackles this season, nine of those for loss, also had nine and a half sacks, forced one fumble, and recovered another. He has committed to play at Arkansas State next year.
