Laughinghouse of St. Aug Named To AP Little All-America Team

Posted December 14, 2012

— Tyron Laughinghouse of Saint Augustine’s University received another All-America football accolade Thursday.

Laughinghouse, a thrilling wide receiver and return specialist, was selected to the Associated Press Little All-America Third Team as an all-purpose player. He is the second player in school history named to the AP team. The other is former standout linebacker Kevin Jones, who was a first-team selection in 2006. Jones is currently the safeties coach on the St. Aug football staff. The AP Little All-America team highlights the Division II, Division III and NAIA players.

This is the fourth All-America honor and 11th postseason award for Laughinghouse after a record-breaking senior year. He led the Falcons to a 6-4 record, their second winning mark in three seasons.

Earlier in December, Laughinghouse was named to the Daktronics All-America first-team as a return specialist. He also made the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-America team as an all-purpose player and the Beyond Sports Network (BSN) All-America first-team as a kick returner. Laughinghouse was selected Division II National Special Teams Player of the Year by BSN.

A dangerous double threat, Laughinghouse set school career marks in receptions (139), receiving yards (2,286) and touchdown receptions (32) at wide receiver. This season, he caught 59 passes for 801 yards and 12 touchdowns. His 16 overall touchdowns and 96 points lead the CIAA.

As a return specialist, Laughinghouse ranks first in Division II in kick return average (40.1), ninth in punt return average (15.3) and 19th in all-purpose average (156.8) this season. His three touchdowns on kick returns is the most in Division II in 2012.

The CIAA Special Teams Player of the Year, Laughinghouse made the All-CIAA first team as a wide receiver and kick returner and second team as a punt returner. He is a Daktronics All-Super Region 1 first-team selection as a return specialist and a second-team pick as a wide receiver, the only player named All-Super Region 1 at two positions. He recently played in the National Bowl All-Star Game in Allentown, Pa., on Dec. 9.
