Tigers Named to Midseason All C-USA Team
Oct. 12, 2012
Jordan Devey, who played three difference positions on the offensive line in last week's win over Rice, has been named to the Phil Steele's College Football Preview Midseason All-Conference USA Team. Junior punter Tom Hornsey was named to the publication's midseason second team.
Devey is just one of two players at Memphis to start every over the past two seasons. This year he has played all 313 offensive plays the Tigers have run. He has started all five games at left tackle this season but against Rice also played left guard before settling in to play right guard in the second half. The Tigers scored on their first two series with Devey playing at right guard and also sustained a late, time-consuming series in the fourth quarter.
Devey, a native of American Fork, Utah, was also a Preseason All-Conference USA selection which was released in July by the league office.
Hornsey is averaging 43.23 yards per punt this season but beyond his season average, the Geelong, Australia, native has placed 16 of his 30 punts inside opponents' 20-yard line. Eleven of those 16 have been downed inside the 10. Seven of Hornsey's punts this season have been downed inside the five.
Memphis reaches the midpoint of its season on Saturday when the Tigers travel to East Carolina.
