Alabama, Ohio State and Jack­son lead AP All-Amer­i­cans

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

No. 1 Alabama placed four play­ers on The As­so­ci­ated Press All-Amer­ica team, most of any school, and Louisville quar­ter­back La­mar Jack­son and fel­low Heis­man Tro­phy fi­nal­ists Jabrill Pep­pers of Michi­gan and Dede West­brook of Ok­la­homa were also first-team se­lec­tions.

The Crim­son Tide and No. 2 Ohio State tied for the most play­ers on the three All-Amer­ica teams re­leased Mon­day with six. No. 3 Clem­son had five play­ers on the three teams, but none on the first team. Wash­ing­ton, which has a spot in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off team along with Alabama, Ohio State and Clem­son, had two play­ers on the sec­ond team.

Jack­son won the Heis­man Satur­day, fin­ish­ing well ahead of Clem­son’s De­shaun Wat­son and Ok­la­homa’s Baker May­field.

The three quar­ter­backs lined up sim­i­larly on the All-Amer­ica teams with Wat­son sec­ond-team and May­field third-team.
