JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Dec. 22, 2022) – Defensive back Alijah Huzzie (Franklin, Ga.) captured his sixth All-American honor on Thursday as the American Football Coaches Association announced its FCS postseason teams.

Huzzie was placed on the first team after registering 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 Blue and Gold this past season where he posted a 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.

Huzzie, a first team all-Southern Conference selection, led 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.
