Hornet sophomore linebacker Justin Owens signed with Stephen F. Austin State University this week.
Owens spent the past two seasons at Fullerton College helping the Hornets to a 12-1 overall record in 2013 before falling to Butte in the CCCAA Championship Game where he was named the Defensive MVP.
Owens led the Hornet Defense with 82 tackles (7.5 tackles for loss) while accumulating 148 for his career. Owens was a two-time SCFA All-Southern conference selection and was named Fullerton College's Scholar Athlete of the Year for 2013-14.
"Justin is one of those players with a motor that doesn't quit. He has great instincts and a nose for the ball. I know that Coach Conque and the Lumberjacks are getting a solid athlete and student", Hornet Head Coach Tim Byrnes.
