POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – Fifth-year senior defensive end Terrence Fede (Nyack, N.Y.) of the Marist football team has been named to the College Sporting News’ (CSN) Fabulous Fifty Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-American Team.

Fede was named Pioneer Football League Defensive Player of the Year this season. He finished sixth nationally in the voting for the Buck Buchanan Award, which is presented to the best defensive player in the FCS.
This season, Fede set Marist’s single-season program record with 13 sacks, and led the FCS in sacks per game. This gave him a program-record 30.5 sacks for his career. Fede also registered 59 total tackles, 18 tackles for loss, four pass break-ups and a forced fumble. He had at least half a sack in nine of 11 games, and at least half a tackle for loss in 10 of 11 games. Fede was named PFL Defensive Player of the Week twice this season.
The CSN All-American Team honors the top 50 student-athletes in the FCS.
