Blackmon And Adcock Named All-Americans

Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon and Levy Adcock have been named 2011 Walter Camp All-Americans, it was announced tonight by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Blackmon, a junior wide receiver, was named to the Walter Camp All-America First Team for the second-straight year, becoming the first player in OSU history to earn first-team honors twice. A senior offensive lineman, Adcock was named to the Walter Camp All-America Second Team.

The 10th two-time All-American in OSU history, Blackmon broke his own school record with 113 catches in 2011, along the way racking up 1,336 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns. He ranks second nationally in receptions per game (11.82) and eighth in receiving yards per game (111.33), and he turned in six 100-yard receiving games this season, including a 13-catch, 205-yard effort against Kansas State.

Adcock has started every game on the offensive line this season, splitting time between right and left tackle, and will enter the Fiesta Bowl with 25-straight starts. A two-time All-Big 12 First Team pick, Adcock helped pave the way for one of the nation's best offenses in 2011, one that averaged nearly 50 points and 557 yards per game.

The selection of Blackmon and Adcock as Walter Camp All-Americans marks the second All-America team each has made thus far in 2011. Earlier this week, both players were named to the American Football Coaches Association All-America Team.

The Walter Camp All-America teams are selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision schools.
