Chadron State College's Alex Ferdinand and Trelan Taylor have each been named to the 2013 Beyond Sports Network Preseason All-America teams.

Ferdinand, a junior kicker from Rapid City, S.D., is a second team selection, while Taylor, a senior defensive back from San Diego, Calif., is on the third team.

Ferdinand led the Eagles in scoring with 94 points last season. He converted 16 of 19 field goal attempts and 46 of 50 conversions.

Taylor finished the season as the RMAC leader in interceptions with eight and he was the Eagles' third-leading tackler with 74. He also forced two fumbles and was named to the all-conference first team on defense and the all-conference third team at punt returner.

Both Ferdinand and Taylor were All-Americans in 2012.
