Two C-N players sign with NFL teams
Wednesday, Apr 30, 2008
By Staff    

JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. -- Carson-Newman wide receiver James Banks and defensive tackle Anthony Toribio signed contracts with NFL teams April 28.

Banks signed with the Cleveland Browns and Toribio with his hometown Miami Dolphins.

Banks, who has been working out at home in Indianapolis, will head to Cleveland to work out in the Browns rookie camp this weekend. As a junior, he caught 22 passes for 370 yards for the Eagles, averaging 33.6 yards per grab. He also averaged 5.4 yards per punt return, including one for 41 yards in C-N's 29-17 win at Chattanooga.

Toribio, who will tryout for the Dolphins this weekend and graduate next Saturday, was a first team All-South Atlantic Conference selection in 2007, after recording 24.5 tackles and 11.5 tackles for loss. The 6-foot-2-inch, 305-pound senior redshirted in his freshman season at C-N, before becoming a key player on the Eagles' defensive line for four years.
