Tye Smith ranks fifth in Towson history in tackles made.

For a second-straight year the Towson Tigers football team has had two players honored as AP All-Americans. This season senior defensive end Ryan Delaire and senior cornerback Tye Smith earned spots on the team, both received third team honors. Last year running back Terrance West and offensive lineman Eric Pike received first team recognition.

Delaire finished the season ranked second in the CAA and 13th in FCS with 11 sacks. He also ranked fifth in the conference with 14.5 tackles for loss and was a Buck Buchanan Award finalist and ranked third in the CAA among defensive lineman with 5.3 tackles per game. He also had eight forced fumbles and became a two-time first team All-CAA player.

Smith, who was also named first team All-CAA, was one of the best cornerbacks in the nation. He led Towson with eight pass break-ups while starting 12 games during his senior season. He also had 85 tackles, which ranked second on the team. In Towson history his 312 career tackles rank as the fifth most.

Smith, at 6-foot, 170-pounds, has widely been regarded as one of the best cornerbacks in FCS since his junior season and has been invited to the East-West Shrine Game on January 17, 2015 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
