08/07/13 - 2013 PATRIOT LEAGUE FOOTBALL PRESEASON ALL-LEAGUE TEAM (COACHES/SIDS): RB Carlton Koonce, Fordham (Sr.),...Koonce, a senior who has received a plethora of preseason awards including being named to the 2013 Walter Payton Award Watch List and a preseason All-American, earned First Team All-Patriot League honors in 2012, rushing 300 times for 1,596 yards, breaking the Fordham single season school rushing mark of 1,477 yards set by Kirwin Watson in 2003.

07/18/13 - 2013 WALTER PAYTON AWARD WATCH LIST: Carlton Koonce, Fordham Rams, Running Back, Senior...Born on the Fourth of July in 1991, the Lumberton, N.J., resident has a knack for offensive fireworks. After tying for the team lead in receptions as a wide receiver in 2011, the former transfer from Hofstra switched to running back in 2012 and rewarded Fordham with a school-record 1,596 yards on 300 carries. Fourth in the FCS in rushing yards per game (145.1), he scored 15 total touchdowns.
And don't let the 5-foot-8 size fool you, Koonce is a running back who does not avoid contact. In fact, he takes it on routinely by lowering his shoulder to gain a few more yards (he had six games with over 30 carries last season). His ability to spin out of tackles also is key to his success. - The Sports Network
