DAVIDSON, N.C. - Senior defensive end Preston Pemasa has been named to the College Football Performance Awards defensive line watch list for the 2013 season.

Pemasa (Garden Grove, Calif. / Orange Lutheran HS) enters his fourth season as a starter for the Runnin' Bulldogs as an anchor of the team's new 3-4 defensive scheme. The 6-foot-2, 257-pound standout has earned All-Big South Conference honors three times in three seasons as was the 2010 Big South Conference Freshman of the Year.

Pemasa finished the 2012 season with 43 total tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss (minus-20 yards) and 1.5 sacks, earning second-team All-Big South honors. Pemasa was a first-team All-Big South selection in both 2010 and 2011, after leading the league in tackles for loss each of those seasons.

He became the first freshman in Big South history to pace the league in sacks in 2010 with 7.0, breaking into the starting lineup in his second career game as a Runnin' Bulldog.

During his three seasons in Boiling Springs, Pemasa has totaled 154 tackles, 35.0 tackles for loss and 12.5 quarterback sacks.

He ranks sixth nationally among returning players in career tackles for loss per game, ranks fifth in Big South Conference history and fourth in the Gardner-Webb record book. He is tied for 10th in Big South history in career sacks.

Pemasa is the third Gardner-Webb player to earn a spot on a College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) positional watch list, joining receiver Kenny Cook and tight end Seth Cranfill.
