BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – Placekicker Andrew Lloyd was named the adidas OVC Specialist of the Week following his performance in the Eastern Kentucky University football team’s 29-10 win at Robert Morris Thursday night.

Lloyd, a native of Winchester, Va., converted on field goal attempts of 34, 25 and 25 yards in the season-opening victory. His first field goal came in the second quarter and then he added two more in the third quarter to push the Colonel advantage to 23-3 entering the fourth quarter. All seven of Lloyd’s kickoffs were downed for touchbacks.

Dating back to last year, Lloyd has made nine straight field goals. The senior converted 8-of-10 field goal attempts in his first season on the squad in 2013.

The other OVC weekly award winners were Eastern Illinois wide receiver Adam Drake (Offensive), Tennessee State defensive lineman Anthony Bass (Defensive) and Tennessee State running back Tom Smith (Newcomer).

Eastern Kentucky is back in action this Saturday, Sept. 6 at Miami (Ohio). That game will be televised by ESPN3 beginning at 3:30 p.m.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Eastern Kentucky University football team was picked to finish fourth in the Ohio Valley Conference this fall in a preseason poll conducted by the OVC coaches and sports information directors. The announcement was made Monday at the OVC football media day event.

The Colonels, who have won a record 21 OVC titles, tallied 82 points in the poll. Since Dean Hood took over as EKU’s head coach in 2008, the Colonels have won two OVC championships (2008, 2011) and 33 league games.

Jacksonville State picked up 10 of the 18 first-place votes and was tabbed as the OVC preseason favorite. The Gamecocks, who were also the preseason favorites in 2005, 2008, 2010 and 2011, totaled 118 points to out-distance two-time defending champion Eastern Illinois in the vote. The Panthers piled up four first-place votes and 110 total points in being picked second.

Eastern Kentucky hosts both league favorites this season – Jacksonville State on Nov. 8 and Eastern Illinois on Oct. 11.

Senior placekicker Andrew Lloyd was the lone EKU representative on the preseason All-OVC team. Lloyd, a senior from Winchester, Virginia, made 8-of-10 field goals last year in his first season of action with the Colonels. He finished the year on a strong note, making his last six field goal attempts including a season-best 49-yarder in the finale at Murray State. Lloyd registered 15 touchbacks on kick-offs in 2013, the most by an EKU kicker in six years under head coach Dean Hood.

The Colonels return six starters on each side of the ball from a team that finished 6-6 in 2013.

Eastern Kentucky begins the 2014 fall season with a Thursday night road game at Robert Morris on Aug. 28. EKU’s home opener is slated for Sept. 13 against Morehead State.
