Woodard invited to play in D2 vs. NAIA Challenge

Lincoln senior Maurice Woodard will play in the D2 vs. NAIA Challenge in Myrtle Beach, S.C., at 1 p.m. Saturday.

The D2 vs. NAIA Challenge, in its third year of existence, is an all-star game that annually pits top players from the NCAA Division II level against the nation’s top NAIA athletes.

Woodard is Lincoln’s career receptions leader, having caught 143 passes in his four years as a Blue Tiger. Woodard’s best season came in 2012, when he had 68 catches for 705 yards, both marks ranking as the second-most in a single season by a Lincoln receiver.

This season, Woodard caught a team-high 48 passes for 372 yards and a score.

Woodard, an all-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association honorable mention selection last season, scored seven touchdowns and amassed over 1,200 receiving yards throughout his career at Lincoln.
