Decatur native Josh Pearson earned All-America honors for the second year in as many seasons on the field in Jacksonville. A senior from Decatur, Ala., also earned his second-straight All-OVC nod in 2019 after a first-team mention a year ago. He wraps up a record-breaking two seasons on the field for JSU with a school-record 30 touchdown catches that rank among the top 10 in OVC history.
His 13 touchdown catches in 2019 are the second-most in a season in school history to his school-record 17 set in 2018. This season saw him lead the FCS in touchdown catches for the second-straight season and haul in 59 catches for 943 yards, tying Joey Hamilton (1998) for the fifth-most in a season in JSU history. He will participate in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 18 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, Calif.
