Editor’s Note: Information From College Football Performance Awards & Marist Athletics Both Used In This Release

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – College Football Performance Awards, the largest awards organization in D-I college football, recently announced its watch list for the 2013 CFPA FCS Tight End Award, and Marist rising senior tight end David Diomede (Park Ridge, N.J.) earned a spot on the list. The preliminary watch list highlights 32 returning performers, vying for the top tight end honor in the Football Championship Subdivision.

“Congratulations to David Diomede on earning a spot on the 2013 CFPA Watch List,” said CFPA Executive Director Brad Smith. "Diomede will be one of the top players to watch in the PFL in 2013.”

Last season, Diomede appeared in all 11 games, and finished with five receptions for 67 yards. His longest catch of the year was for 18 yards. He averaged 13.4 yards per catch and had one touchdown on the year. Diomede has seen increased playing time the last two seasons, and is in line for an increased role this season with the departure of two-year starter Anthony Calcagni.
