West Memphis alum Paulo Henriques named to Phil Steele's Preseason C-USA 3rd Team

Memphis (Univ. of Memphis) - Six Tiger football players have been named to Phil Steele's 2011 Preseason All-C-USA teams. The representatives include: Dontari Poe (first-team defense), Frank Trotter (second-team defense), Ronald Leary (third-team offense), Paulo Henriques (third-team special teams), Tom Hornsey (third-team special teams) and Marcus Rucker (fourth-team offense).

Henriques, a junior, led the team in scoring with 59 points off 17 PATs and 14 field goals. He finished the season tied for fourth in Conference USA in field goals per game with 1.17, and ranked ninth in the league in points by a kicker. The West Memphis, Ark., native upped his season long boot with a 45 yarder against Southern Miss in the third quarter, and then bested that mark in the fourth quarter with a 47 yarder. That game started a string of nine straight made field goals through the end of the season.
