Demetrius McCray, New­ton — The Ap­palachian State se­nior was named to The Sport­ing News FCS All-Amer­i­can team.

It’s McCray’s sec­ond All- Amer­i­can honor, af­ter re­ceiv­ing fourthteam hon­ors from Phil Steele Pub­li­ca­tions in 2011. He tied for the South­ern Con­fer­ence lead with four in­ter­cep- tions in 2012, be­com­ing the first Moun­taineer cor­ner­back to ever lead the league in in­ter­cep­tions twice ( he paced the So­Con with five INTs in 2011). The se­nior also led the team with eight passes de­fended, ranked sixth on the squad with 55 tack­les from his cor­ner­back po­si­tion and forced a fum­ble. Like Kim­brough, he is one of 20 fi­nal­ists for the Buchanan Award.
