Anchorage’s Lincoln Tulimasealii of Faulkner University has been picked for the inaugural NAIA Senior Football Classic.
The 6-foot-3, 235-pounder is an all-conference linebacker but will line up at defensive end for the national showcase Dec. 14 in Savannah, Georgia.
Tulimasealii, of West High fame, is a senior for the Faulkner Eagles and has registered 85 tackles and five sacks in 21 career games.
In last weekend’s season opener, he had four tackles – including two for loss – and a sack in his team’s 38-19 win over Bluefield College.
Last season he posted career highs in tackles (46), tackles for loss (8), sacks (2.5) and pass breakups (5) and was named second-team All-Mid-South Conference.
