Senior Linebacker Tabbed To Football Gazette Second Team Squad

Senior Linebacker Ben Krasnoff

LEXINGTON, Va. -- Washington and Lee senior linebacker Ben Krasnoff (Towson, Md./Towson) was selected as a Second Team Preseason All-American by Don Hansen's Football Gazette.

The honor is the second of the preseason for Krasnoff after garnering Second Team Preseason All-America honors by Lindy's College Football Preview Magazine earlier this summer.

Krasnoff earned First Team All-ODAC, First Team All-State and First Team All-South Region honors following last season. He led the ODAC with an average of 10.4 tackles per game, totaling 94 tackles in nine games. He also led W&L with 16 tackles for a loss, two of which were sacks.

Bridgewater linebacker Jermaine Taylor was a Football Gazette first team selection, while Catholic wide receiver Nick Bublavi and Guilford defensive lineman Brian Person were also second team picks.

Washington and Lee finished the 2002 season with a 5-5 overall record. The Generals were 3-3 in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference, tying for third place. W&L returns eight starters on offense and seven starters on defense for the 2003 campaign.
