Career: Post enters his senior season with 22 career starts for the Eagles to rank third among offensive players.

2012: He is ranked No. 34 among all FCS offensive tackles by Phil Steele’s FCS College Football Preview. Was selected to the preseason All-Big Sky Conference squad. Listed as a starter at right offensive tackle on preseason depth chart. At the end of spring practices, he was one of three players receiving an “Iron Eagle” Award for achievements in the off-season in strength and conditioning and the classroom.

2011: Earned honorable mention All-Big Sky Conference honors and was named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team for the third-straight year. Post missed Eastern’s first two games of the season with an ankle injury, but returned to start the last nine games at right offensive tackle for an offensive line ravaged by injuries during the season. Despite having three offensive linemen lost early in the season with injuries and a total of 10 players receiving starts at that position, he helped EWU lead the FCS in passing yards per game (368.5) and rank seventh overall in total offense (447.4).

2010: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. Started 13 games at right offensive tackle. He made the first start of his career against Central Washington (9/11/10) and started every game after that, except against Idaho State (11/20/10) when senior Brice Leahy started on Senior Day. Eastern finished the 2010 season ranked 22nd in the FCS in total offense (397.1 yards per game), as well as rankings of 26th in passing (241.0), 49th in rushing (156.1) and 18th in scoring (31.5).

2009: Named to the Big Sky Conference All-Academic team. Played in six games as a backup offensive lineman. He helped Eastern rank in the top 10 in four offensive categories in FCS, including passing (3rd, 321.3), total offense (4th, 462.2) and scoring (8th, 33.7).

2008: Redshirted. Was the team’s scout team offensive player of the week once.

HS: Graduated from Southridge HS in 2008. Post earned All-Metro League second team honors as both an offensive lineman and defensive lineman as a senior. He helped Southridge High School to a 6-4 finish.

Personal: Communication studies major. Born 9/13/89 in Seattle, Wash. Will turn 23 during Eastern’s bye week.
