CHRISTIAN ADAMS ’05 and O.J. BATTS ’04 earned First Team All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference football honors according to a vote of the league’s seven head coaches, the league announced Dec. 2. The Quakers’ TRAVIS FRAZIER ’07 and DELVIN NEWKIRK ’05 received second-team laurels while FEKY EUGENE ’04 and BRIAN PERSON ’04 picked up honorable mention recognition.
Bridgewater linebacker Jermaine Taylor and Hampden-Sydney receiver Conrad Singh shared the league’s Player of the Year Award. Emory & Henry’s Todd Woods won the league’s Rookie of the Year prize while Hampden-Sydney’s Marty Favret took home Coach of the Year honors.
A 5-9, 160-pound punter, Adams leads the ODAC for the second straight season and ranks fourth in the NCAA Division III with a school-record 41.6-yard average. The junior placed 22 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line with four fair catches and three touchbacks. He kicked 13 punts of 50 or more yards, including a 76-yard boot against Ferrum, which ranks second in Guilford history. He averaged over 40 yards per kick in nine of 10 contests, including the Oct. 4 matchup with Greensboro where he averaged 45.1 yards on nine punts. Adams’ 41.6-yard average stands third in ODAC history.
Batts, a 5-8, 180-pound defensive back, earned his initial first-team honor after receiving second-team laurels in 2001 and honorable mention recognition in 2002. The senior led Guilford and ranks seventh in the ODAC with a career-high 69 tackles (48 solo). Batts topped the Quakers’ tacklers a team-best four times and had three contests with 10 or more stops, including a personal-best 12-stop effort against Ferrum. He played cornerback for his whole career before switching to safety midway through 2003 to fill in for the injured starter. Batts led Guilford with six pass breakups and recorded his lone interception in the Quakers’ win over Methodist. He also made 10 tackles in the game and garnered the ODAC’s Defensive Player of the Week prize for his efforts.

He led the team in pass breakups all four seasons and totalled 38 deflections in his career.
Frazier, a 6-4, 215-pound freshman, becomes Guilford’s first All-ODAC kicker since the Quakers joined the league in 1991. He leads the ODAC and ranks 10th nationally in field goals per game (1.00). His 51 points paced Guilford and he stands eighth among the loop’s points per game leaders (5.1), second among kickers. Frazier converted 10 of 14 field goals, two shy of the school record and Guilford’s most since Rick Herring’s ’88 11 field goals in 1987. Frazier made eight of his last nine field-goal attempts, including his final six straight, with a career-long of 38 yards at nationally ranked ODAC champion Bridgewater. The 38-yard kick is the longest by a Quakers’ kicker since 1994. Frazier also made 21 of 24 extra points and kicked off for Guilford.
A 5-11, 250-pound junior defensive end, Newkirk finished second to Batts with a career-high 55 tackles (29 solo) and led the Quakers with 4.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss.

A First Team All-ODAC pick in 2002, Person registered 15 tackles, four for loss, in eight games this year on the defensive line. He entered 2003 a preseason Division III All-American according to two sources, but never got on track due to hip and elbow injuries at separate junctures of the season. When on the field, he helped Guilford establish the league’s top pass defense (161.8 yards per game) and rank second in pass efficiency defense. He had a season-best three tackles against Carson-Newman and Hampden-Sydney. Person concludes his career with 81 tackles (34 solo), including five sacks and 31 tackles for loss in 33 contests.
