The honors continue to keep piling up for Wisconsin senior linebacker Chris Borland.
He was named first-team All-America by the Football Writers Association of America, joining Alabama’s C.J. Mosley and Buffalo’s Khalil Mack at linebacker.
Borland is the first defensive player from Wisconsin to earn first-team All-America laurels since defensive end Erasmus James in 2004.
In addition to his first-team nod from the FWAA, Borland earned second-team All-America honors from the Associated Press, Athlon, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated.
Senior LG Ryan Groy was also named third-team All-America by the AP, while sophomore RB Melvin Gordon earned honorable mention on Sports Illustrated’s All-America team.
