Former Southern Lee Standout Aaron Blockmon Named to All-Pioneer Football League Team

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – A year after leading the conference in receiving yards, Campbell’s Aaron Blockmon has been named to the 2017 Preseason All-Pioneer Football League team.

The redshirt junior was named First Team All-PFL in 2016, becoming the Camels’ first 1,000 yard receiver with a league leading 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns, both Campbell records. Blockmon surpassed the 100 receiving yards mark six times on the season, hauling in a touchdown in each of his final five games.

The Sanford, N.C. native and former Southern Lee star is already Campbell’s all-time leader in receiving yards (1,491) and receiving touchdowns (15) after just two seasons on the field.

Campbell was voted fifth in the 2017 PFL Preseason Coaches' Poll, announced Monday by the conference.

Campbell heads into its 10th season of football in 2017 (modern era). The Camels brought football back to the Creek in 2008 after a 58 year hiatus. 2017 will also mark the program's final season as a member of the PFL. Campbell heads to the Big South in 2018.

The Camels return 44 letterwinners, including 11 starters (six offense, five defense), from their 2016 squad that went 5-5 overall and 3-4 in PFL play, notching the program's second season at .500 or better in the modern era.


Campbell kicks off its 2017 schedule on August 31, hosting Methodist at Barker-Lane Stadium.
