JEFFERSON CITY -- After leading the Lincoln defense through five games in September, two LU football players, Cecil Frison and O'Hara Fluellen, have been named to the 2012 Black College Football (BCF) All-Star Game Watch List. The BCF All-Star Game made the announcement on Monday.

The BCF All-Star Game features the top players from all Historically Black Colleges and Universities. A postseason contest scheduled to be played on December 1 at Morgan State, the game invites 110 draft-eligible seniors to play and display their talents for professional scouts. The selected players will spend a week consisting of team practices, interviews and weigh-ins conducted by the National Football League. The NFL Players Association will also conduct a life skills session while the Association of African American Financial Advisors will host a financial seminar.

Two coaching staffs from the Canadian Football League will coach the players invited in the actual game, which will be televised regionally. The BCF All-Star Game Committee expects over 150 scouts representing teams from four professional football leagues to be present throughout the week at practices and games. President and CEO Taber J. Small will work with athletic professionals to determine the 110 selected players.

Frison converted from playing tight end to defensive end for his senior season, and the early results have been good. He is second on the team with 5.5 tackles for a loss of 19 yards, and has forced two fumbles, recovering one. Frison started all five games in September, tallying 13 tackles, including nine solo.

Fluellen, a defensive back, has had a stellar career at Lincoln, including finishing last season as an All-Super Region Honorable Mention. With 18 career interceptions, Fluellen is five shy of the program record of 22. Through five games, Fluellen has led Lincoln with 32 tackles, including a team-high 27 solo tackles, and has broken-up four passes. He also has 2.5 tackles for a loss, an interception and has blocked a kick. In addition to his tremendous effort on defense, Fluellen has proven valuable as a kick returner, averaging 24.7 yards per attempt. Against Emporia State on Saturday, he returned a kickoff 93 yards to set up one of the Blue Tigers' four touchdowns.

The final rosters for the 2012 BCF All-Star Game will be posted on November 1.
