MACJC Preseason All-Gridiron Team

This is the MACJC Preseason All-Gridiron team as was published in Mississippi Gridiron magazine. This was chosen several weeks ago and some rosters have changed recently around the league, but hopefully all of these players are still active. The MACJC season kicks off tomorrow night.

The Preseason Offensive Player Of the Year is Itawamba running back Octavious Matthews, the league’s leading returning rusher. The Auburn commit rushed for 808 yards and four touchdowns last year. He needed just 94 carries, averaging an impressive 8.6 yards per carry.

Our Preseason Defensive Player Of The Year is Gulf Coast defensive lineman Isaiah Buggs. Buggs has his choice of major Division I scholarship offers after racking up 59 total tackles last season with a team-high four sacks and eight tackles for loss.
