Greensboro, NC (7/27/98) - Guilford College senior Doug Robertson (Reidsville, NC/Reidsville) has been named a Division III Preseason All-American by Bob Griese's 1998 College Football Preview.
Robertson, a 6-1, 290-pound offensive guard, heads into his senior season as the Quakers' top returning offensive lineman. He represented the Quakers on the 1997 first team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) unit, becoming the first Guilford lineman on the first team all-conference squad since Bryan Garland '95 in 1994. A three-year starter, Robertson consistently graded out as Guilford's top offensive lineman a year ago and helped the Quakers to a share of the 1997 ODAC championship. He received second team All-ODAC honors in 1996.
Coach Mike Ketchum's club opens preseason camp August 16 in preparation for defense of the ODAC crown beginning at Methodist September 12. The Quakers return 34 letter winners and 15 starters from last season's club, including four all-conference selections.
