2019 First Team All -SIAC Conference Team

Morehouse Head Coach Rich Freeman had to enjoy knowing Georgia Southern  transfer  Demetrice Lofton was part of the Maroon Tigers Defensive front. The Sophomore racked up 53 tackles, 21 tackles for loss , 11.5 Sacks, 1 Pass Break up, 12 Quarterback hurries and 3 Forced Fumbles.

The young gladiator from Fairburn , Georgia  had his most productive game on September 28,2019  against the Tigers of Savannah State.Despite Morehouse coming up on the short end of a 17-10  score , there is no doubt Lofton left it all on the field after a season high 12 tackles  and 5 tackles for loss.

There were other games where the Defensive End left his mark : Against Edward Waters he had a team high nine tackles and 3.5 Sacks. In the game against Benedict he gobbled up the Tigers Quarterback twice.

Speaking of sacks and tackles for loss, one of the most impressive stats that this young All American has to his credit is the 109 yards racked up as a result of his astounding 21 tackles for loss. Most defenders have a challenge getting 21 tackles for a season , let alone 21 tackles for loss. Look for this Maroon Tiger to Roar more in 2020.
