Eddie Slye

Brevard College senior long snapper Eddie Slye (Asheville, N.C.) and sophomore free safety Ashud Moore (Ellenwood, Ga.) have been named to the All-South Atlantic Conference first team.

"I am so proud and happy for Ashud and Eddie," said head football coach Paul Hamilton. "Their commitment, leadership and loyalty to our 2016 football team was outstanding. They are both very deserving of this honor and recognition they have brought to our program and college."

The Tornados are coming off their final year as part of the SAC before transitioning into a Division III schedule and the USA South Conference in the fall of 2017.

Brevard wrapped up the 2016 season this past weekend at Mars Hill, falling by a final of 35-6 and finishing the year with a 1-10 overall record and 0-7 in league games.

The Tornados lone win of the year came back on Sept. 24 when they defeated the Apprentice School Builders 38-7 at home, celebrating the victory on WMYA My 40 television.

Slye – a 6-1, 230-pound inside linebacker from nearby Asheville, earns his first career All-SAC honor.

Through 10 starts for the Tornados, Slye compiled 25 total tackles, 14 solo stops and 11 assists, while contributing one tackle for loss on the year.

Slye's biggest impact, however, came in the form of the kicking game as the senior snapped for the Tornados 10 out of 11 games on the season for over 50 snaps, aiding Tornados punter Kevin Weber (Summerville, N.C.) to finish the year with a 38.7 yards per punt average.

Slye's impact was also noticed with Brevard's field goal game, as the senior aided in the Tornados making four out of five field goals on the year, with the only miss coming from 55 yards.

Brevard also finished the season a perfect 18-18 in extra-point attempts, tied with Lenoir-Rhyne for tops amongst all SAC opponents.

Moore – a 5-9, 185-defensive back from Ellenwood, Ga. – also earns his first career All-SAC selection.

In his first full year as a start for the Tornados, the true sophomore lead the SAC with 98 tackles on the year and 8.9 tackles per game, marks that both rank top-10 in Brevard College single season history. Moore also racked up a league best 68 solo tackles, tied with Stanley Jones for the tops in school history.

Additionally, Moore's mark of 68 solo stops ranks tied for 13th-overall nationally, while his seven pass breakups finished top-10 in the SAC and tied with senior defensive back Amir Williams (Athens, Ga.) 2016 total for fourth all-time in school history.

The Ellenwood, Ga. native also finished the year with two forced fumbles and a solo tackle for loss, as a true sophomore. Moore was an integral part of a Tornados defense that finished tops in the SAC in yards allowed per game with 149.5.

In addition, the Tornados finished top-five with 10 interceptions, fumble recoveries and 69.9 tackles per game.

The Tornados will return to the gridiron next fall as they move into the USA South as part of the Division III transition, scheduled to take place following the 2016-17 calendar year.
