Earlier this year, the Lions defense held Northeastern State to only 113 yards of total offense and three
points. It is the lowest total allowed by an A&M-Commerce defense since 1992 when Angelo State was held
to 83 yards of total offense.

Roar of the Defense
In eight games, in 2007, the A&M-Commerce defense has held their opponent to under 125 yards rushing.
Last year, the Lions held six opponents under 100 yards and the most that the Lions gave up was 179 to
Tarleton State.

No Fishin Around
Sophomore defensive back Mark Fisher forced a fumble late against Angelo State to preserve the Lions’ 20-
17 win. He also picked up a fumble and ran it 16 yards out for the first player since Anthony Fisher picked up
a West Texas A&M fumble in 2004 in Canyon. Against East Central, Fisher greeted East Central wide receiver
Larry Carter in the end zone on a hitch pass for a safety. It is the first safety recorded by the A&M-Commerce
defense since Lions tackled Abilene Christian’s Rashon Myles in the end zone on Sept. 17, 2005.

Marcus the Menace
Junior defensive end Marcus Smith has emerged as a menace to opposing offenses. The Conroe, Texas
native is tied for second in the Lone Star Conference with 15 tackles for loss. He is only four shy of the
school record of 19.

Big Sandy
Redshirt sophomore Andreé Smith, who hails from Big Sandy, Texas (the same hometown as Chicago Bears
head coach - Lovie Smith) has worked his way into the starting lineup at the defensive end position. He leads
the team and is second in the LSC with six sacks. Smith also ranks second on the team with 10 tackles for
loss for minus 84 yards.

Taking it to the House
The 97-yard kickoff touchdown return by Nabil El-Amin against Angelo State is the longest kickoff return
by an A&M-Commerce player in school history at Memorial Stadium. The last time that A&M-Commerce ran
back a kick for a touchdown was on November 16, 1995 when Jason Smith ran a Tarleton State kick back 94
yards. The longest return all-time by an A&M-Commerce player are a pair of 100-yard returns by Bob Sloan
in 1950 and Marvin Brown in 1951. Both came against Midwestern State.

Junior Darron Sheppard earned All-American honors in the off season as a member of the Lions track
and field team. Sheppard, who transferred in prior to the start of spring semester 2007, made an instant
impact in the track and field team. During spring practice, the Longview, Texas native would endure foot-
ball workouts and training in the field events for track and field. The hard work paid off, as he took fifth in
the discus with a season-best throw of 167-8.
