Many accolades have been bestowed upon Illinois State junior running back Marshaun Coprich in 2014, however none have been as prestigious as his selection to the 2014 Walter Camp Football Foundation Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America team on Tuesday.
Coprich is the first Redbird to be honored as a Walter Camp All-American since 2012, when his former teammate and current San Diego Charger Colton Underwood earned the honor. The team was selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of the Football Championship Subdivision schools and certified by the accounting and auditing firm, Marcum LLP.
With his 258 yards rushing in ISU's quarterfinal playoff win at Eastern Washington last weekend, the 2014 Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Year became the first Redbird in school history to rush for over 2,000 yards in a season, upping his season total to 2,089 yards. The Victorville, California, native also extended his school record of consecutive 100-plus yard rushing games to 13 overall.
Coprich also holds the ISU single-season rushing touchdowns mark with 26.
