Cal U’s McPhatter named preseason All-American

Cal (Pa.) safety Lamont McPhatter returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown in the Vulcans’ upset of No. 2 IUP on Saturday.

Cal (Pa.) senior Lamont McPhatter II is aiming for a second All-American season.

McPhatter, a defensive back, was named to the preseason All-American First Team.

A consensus first-team All-American last season, McPhatter also is the reining Super Region One Defensive Athlete of the Year. He was the only defensive back in the nation to become a regional nominee for the Harlon Hill Trophy.

McPhatter led Cal with five interceptions and a national-best 198 return yards on those picks. He added 63 tackles and had a school-record 100-yard interception return against IUP in the Coal Bowl.

Two other PSAC players made the preseason All-America second-team. They are West Chester senior defensive back Jarey Elder and Lock Haven junior tight end Jalen Jackson.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
