Let the preseason honors begin for Temple.
Five Owls were named to Phil Steele’s preseason all-Big East Conference teams.
The versatile Matt Brown was selected in three different positions.
As a punt returner, the senior joins junior defensive tackle Levi Brown on the all-conference second team. Matt Brown was a third-team pick at running back and fourth-team kickoff returner.
Three other seniors -- offensive tackle Martin Wallace, safety Justin Gildea and punter Brandon McManus --- also made the fourth-team.
Temple opens the season against Villanova on Aug. 31 in the Mayor’s Cup at Lincoln Financial Field.
