Sean Lamkin Receives Preseason All-America Honors

Sean Lamkin

WORCESTER, Mass. - Senior linebacker Sean Lamkin (Jenks, Okla.) has been selected as a preseason first team All-American by the FCS Senior Scout Bowl. He was one of 10 players from the Patriot League and 14 players from New England to be honored.

Lamkin played in only the first three games of the 2009 season due to injury, and returns to the team as a fifth-year senior in 2010. In his limited action last year, he totaled 12 tackles, two tackles for loss and an interception. Lamkin previously earned second team All-Patriot League honors in 2008, after starting all 11 games for the Crusaders at outside linebacker. He led the team with 71 total tackles in 2008, including 56 solo stops. Lamkin also totaled six tackles for loss, two pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Over the course of his Holy Cross career, Lamkin now has 107 tackles and 12 tackles for loss.
