James Tabbed Walter Camp All-American

Oregon running back LaMichael James has been named to the 2011 Walter Camp All-America Team. James was Oregon's first unanimous All-American last year, now is the school's first two-time consensus All-American.

LaMichael James leads the nation in rushing at 149.6 yards per game and is ranked second in all-purpose yardage at 182.9. James has 1,646 yards for the season and the only player in Pac-12 Conference history to have three seasons of 1,500 yards or more.

James was named the MVP of the inaugural Pac-12 Championship Game after rushing for 219 yards and three touchdowns in Oregon's win over UCLA on Dec. 2. He was named to the 2011 AFCA All-America Team at the all-purpose position on Monday.

Oregon's career rushing leader ranks third all-time in conference history with 4,923 yards. James is a finalist for the 2011 Doak Walker Award, an honor he took home last season as the nation's top running back.

The third player in school history and first since halfback Mel Renfro in 1962 and '63, to be named a two-time All-America, James was one of four players to repeat as first-team members of the Walter Camp squad, and will be honored at the organization's national awards banquet on Saturday, January 14, 2012, at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.
