Bridges earned first team All-Big South honors in 2015, after also leading the team in touchdowns with eight.
In 2014, Varn helped PC to a 6-5 record, the program’s first winning season since 2007 and its first-ever in the Big South. His offensive prowess guided the Blue Hose to ranked wins over No. 12 Furman and No. 22 Charleston Southern and the team's two road wins stand as the most since three in 2007.
