JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Nov. 26, 2003) - The East Tennessee State football team placed four members on the All-Southern Conference media team, announced Wednesday from Spartanburg, S.C. Leading the way were two first-team members, senior cornerback Tony Tiller (Lithonia, Ga.) and junior safety Gerald Sensabaugh (Kingsport, Tenn.). Tiller finished the season second on the Bucs with four interceptions and also recorded 18 tackles, one for a loss, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and five pass breakups. He earned several conference and national awards after intercepting two passes and returning them for touchdowns on Oct. 18 against Liberty. Tiller has been invited to participate in two postseason all-star games, the American Airlines Division I-AA All-Star Classic, and the Las Vegas All-American Classic. Sensabaugh is an athletic safety that finished fourth on the team with 74 tackles and was second with eight pass breakups. He also tied for the team lead and tied for fourth in the conference with three forced fumbles. Sensabaugh also made an enormous impact on special teams this season, blocking five punts. He tied an NCAA Division I-AA record by blocking three punts on Nov. 1 against Georgia Southern. Sensabaugh also added two sacks and a fumble recovery on the season. Senior defensive lineman Brandon Calton (Pennington Gap, Va.) and sophomore offensive lineman Quinton Staton (Chattanooga, Tenn.) earned second-team honors from conference media. Calton finished fourth on the Bucs with 75 tackles, second with 15.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks, setting career-highs in each of those categories. Calton tied for fourth in the Southern Conference in TFL's and tied for sixth in the SoCon in sacks. He also had two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and a blocked extra point this season. Calton had a season-high 10 tackles on Nov. 1 against Georgia Southern and had nine in the season-opener at Eastern Michigan on Aug. 28. Staton was one of three players to start all 12 games on an offensive line that suffered several injuries this season. Staton was an integral part of a Buccaneer offensive line that allowed just 15 quarterback sacks this season after allowing 41 last season. Tiller, Sensabaugh, Calton and Staton were also members of the All-SoCon coach's team, announced Tuesday afternoon.
