AP announces 2012 All-America team
By Heather Dinich
ESPN.com on Monday unveiled its 2012 All-America team, which featured UNC offensive guard Jonathan Cooper, and FSU kicker Dustin Hopkins. Today the Associated Press announced its All-America team. Cooper was honored once again, and he was the only player from the ACC to make the first team for SI.com, but Tulane kicker Cairo Santos edged out Hopkins at kicker by both SI.com and the AP. Defensively, FSU defensive end Bjoern Werner was also named to the Associated Press first team. Clemson center Dalton Freeman was named to the second-team, along with Hopkins.
You have to scroll all the way down to the AP's third team to find UNC running back Giovani Bernard, and Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
