Senquez Golson Unanimously Named First Team All-American

J5184x3456-1691
After an outstanding senior season, Ole Miss cornerback Senquez Golson has been chosen as a first team All-American by every major outlet that has named a team so far.
Golson is the first consensus first team All-American and first unanimous choice since offensive tackle Michael Oher in 2008.
J5184x3456-1708To be recognized as a consensus first team All-American by the NCAA, a player must be listed on the most first team All-America teams competing against players at that position only (in Golson’s case, cornerback). A player has to be named first team on at least two of the five major All-America teams (American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Foundation).
So far this postseason, Golson has been named a first teamer by all five of aforementioned outlets , as well as Sports Illustrated, USA Today, ESPN.com, CBS Sports, Scout.com, Athlon, College Sports Madness and Sports on Earth. He is also a unanimous first team All-SEC pick.
A finalist for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which goes to the national defensive player of the year, Golson leads the SEC and ranks second nationally with nine interceptions. His theft in the back of the end zone sealed the Rebels’ 23-17 win over No. 1 Alabama. He also has 41 tackles, three TFLs, eight pass breakups and two quarterback hurries.
Golson has also been tabbed the SEC Defensive Player of the Year by Scout.com and College Sports Madness and was a finalist for the Conerly Trophy, which goes to the top college football player in Mississippi.
Ole Miss has had several others receive All-America distinction this year, including sophomore tight end Evan Engram, sophomore defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, senior free safety Cody Prewitt and sophomore offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.
