Dec. 12, 2006
The Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's top receiver, Johnson is a consensus first-team all-America with selection to five of the major all-America teams as recognized by the NCAA. He also made The Sporting News team and was previously named a first-team all-America by the Walter Camp Foundation, the American Football Coaches Association and the Football Writers' Association of America. He finished 10th in the Heisman Trophy balloting.
In 2005, Johnson was a first-team all-America by the AFCA while earning second-team recognition from Walter Camp and AP.
Brooks, a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, has now made second-team on two all-America teams. Last week, he was honored by the Walter Camp Foundation.
