Five things to know about Malik Fountian

Fountain, a 6-2 and 230-pound linebacker, is Central Michigan’s best defensive player. He is a senior and the leader of the Chippewas’ defense.

Since you will hear his name called many time today, here are five things you need to know about him:

He led his team in tackles the last two seasons

Fountain played all 13 games during his sophomore and junior seasons. As a junior, he recorded a total of 89 tackles, 55 solo and 34 assisted. As a sophomore, Fountain recorded 92 tackles, averaging 7 tackles per game.

As a redshirt freshman, he was third in tackles with 67 tackles.

He was named a second-team preseason All-MAC selection

Athlon Sports named Fountain a second-team preseason All-MAC selection. His teammate and fellow linebacker, Alex Briones, was named to the third-team.

Central Michigan running back Jonathon Ward was named to the first-team.

His career-high tackles in one game is 13

Fountain recorded a career-high 13 tackles and 1.5 tackles for a loss against Toledo during his sophomore season. Toledo defeated Central Michigan 31-17.

His is one of four captains

As the leader on defense, this is no surprise.

He thinks Cats Pause writer Derek Terry is a player

I actually laughed out loud when I saw this on Fountain’s Twitter timeline.
