SYRACUSE — Syracuse University football safety Andre Cisco was selected to Phil Steele’s Preseason All-America First Team Tuesday to add to his growing list of preseason accolades.

The junior from Valley Stream leads all active FBS players with 12 interceptions and has defended 28 passes, forced two fumbles, and scored on a pick-six in 22 career games.

Cisco has also been named to Preseason All-America teams by Street & Smith’s, Lindy’s, and Sporting News. He has garnered a spot on the watch lists for the Bednarik Award and Lott Impact Trophy, both of which are presented annually to college football’s top defensive player.
