Murray State's QB Casey Brockman

The preseason accolades are beginning for Murray State quarterback Casey Brockman as the senior was named a First-Team All-American by Lindy’s Magazine.  Also, the publication ranked the Racers 18th in its preseason poll.

Following the 2011 season, Brockman (Murray, Ky.) was honored as a Third-Team All-American by The Sports Network and Associated Press, while also finishing 11th in the voting for the Walter Payton Award.

Brockman enters his final season as a Racer poised to become the school’s all-time leader in attempts, completions, touchdowns and total offense.  He re-wrote the record books in 2011 by going 316-for-477 for 3,276 yards and 25 touchdowns.  He added 211 yards and four touchdowns on the ground, while also catching a pair of touchdown passes.

He set MSU and OVC single-game records for completions (45) and yards (600), while also tieing his own record with seven touchdown passes in a victory over Tennessee State.  Brockman closed out his junior season by throwing for a pair of touchdowns, rushing for one and adding a receiving touchdown in the victory over Southeast Missouri.

Brockman set new single-season MSU and OVC records for attempts, completions and total offense (3,487).

The Racers open the 2012 season Sept. 1 at Florida State.  Kickoff is set for 5 p.m.
