|Junior wide-out Maurice Price|
Junior wide receiver Maurice Price has been named to the Associated Press All-American team, following his record-setting 103 catches during the 2006 season.
Earlier this year, Price was named to the first-team all-conference team, after becoming one of just seven receivers in Division I-AA history to catch more than 100 passes in a season, setting a Big South record with 103. Price finished the season leading the Nation in receptions per game, averaging more than 9.3 per game, and became the League's leader in receptions and yardage. Price also holds the single-season record with five games recording at least 10 receptions.
The Buccaneers had a 14-game winning streak, and finished the season at 9-2.
