Alabama Places Four On AP All-America Team

Alabama placed two men on the first team and two on the second team in the annual Associated Press All-America selections for 2014.

The Alabama selections were not a huge surprise. Amari Cooper, a 6-1, 210-pound wide receiver who was winner of the Belitnikoff Award as the nation’s top wide receiver and the Southeastern Conference Offensive Player of the Year, was selected just a few days after finishing third in Heisman Trophy voting. Also named to the first ream representing the Crimson Tide was junior safety Landon Collins, 6-0, 222.

The AP second team included Bama representatives senior guard Arie Kouandjio and freshman punter JK Scott.
