Postseason honors continue to roll in for the Alabama football team as six Crimson Tide student-athletes earned first team All-America honors from the Sporting News Tuesday. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and offensive linemen Ross Pierschbacher and Jonah Williams were named on offense, while defensive back Deionte Thompson and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams were tabbed on defense.
Jonah Williams has earned consensus All-America honors by virtue of his first-team accolades from the Sporting News, Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Associated Press (AP) and Walter Camp.
Quinnen Williams has also earned consensus first-team honors from the Sporting News, FWAA, AP, Walter Camp and has been recognized by The Athletic and Sports Illustrated as a first team All-American as well. The redshirt sophomore took home the Outland Trophy on Dec. 6, in recognition of his breakout season in his first year as a starter.
Jeudy, who was honored with the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver last week, earned first team All-America honors from the Sporting News, AP, Walter Camp, Sports Illustrated and The Athletic. The sophomore was also a first team All-SEC selection by both AP and the league coaches.
Pierschbacher was a Rimington Trophy finalist and earned first-team All-America honors from the Sporting News along with second-team nods from AP and Sports Illustrated.
Tagovailoa’s list of honors this season already includes the Maxwell, Walter Camp and Sporting News Player of the Year awards. The sophomore, who finished runner-up for the Heisman Trophy, also received SEC Offensive Player of the Year honors and first team All-America recognition from Sporting News and Walter Camp, as well as second-team honors from the FWAA, AP, The Athletic and Sports Illustrated.
