SEARCY (HardingSports.com) - For the second straight season, BeyondSportsNetwork.com has honored Harding fullback Romo Westbrook on one of its Division II All-America Teams.
This season, Westbrook landed on the 2nd Team. Westbrook was a 1st Team honoree in 2012, but the website did not honor a fullback on the 1st Team this season.
A native of Marion, Ark., Westbrook leads Harding and ranks second in the Great American Conference with 102.5 rushing yards per game. His 1,025 rushing yards rank sixth in a Harding single season and his 10 touchdowns rank tied for fifth.
Westbrook and Chris Pierson (1996-97) are the only two Harding running backs ever to receive All-America honors.
Westbrook, a junior, has 1,841 rushing yards to rank eighth on Harding's career list. He is tied for fourth with 17 career rushing touchdowns.
