Staff Report

The Sun Belt Conference released its preseason all-conference team Monday, and among those included were UNT sophomore offensive lineman Cyril Lemon and senior punter Will Atterberry.

Lemon started 12 games for the Mean Green last year as a freshman and is one of only three sophomores on the 26-player preseason team.

Atterberry was one of the conference’s best punters last season and has been named to the 2012 Ray Guy Award preseason watch list. The award is given at the end of each season to the nation’s top punter.

Florida International led the Sun Belt with seven all-conference selections. The Golden Panthers were ranked No. 1 in the 2012 preseason Sun Belt poll, as voted by the conference’s 10 head coaches. UNT was ranked No. 8 out of 10.

The Mean Green will open its season Saturday, Sept. 1 in Baton Rouge, La. against Lousiana State University.
