Jadeveon Clowney named First Team All-America
 
University of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has been named to the 2013 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) All-America team, it was announced today.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. What makes these teams so special is that they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the men who know the players the best - the coaches themselves.

Clowney, a 6-6, 274-pound junior from Rock Hill, S.C. was named first-team All-SEC by both the Associated Press and the SEC coaches. He was a second-team Walter Camp All-American. A 2013 Rotary Lombardi Award semifinalist, Clowney finished the regular season with 10.5 tackles for loss and had 35 tackles on the year to go along with a forced fumble, a pair of pass breakups, three sacks and eight quarterback hurries.

The Gamecocks have had a first-team All-America selection in a school-record five consecutive seasons: Eric Norwood (2009), Alshon Jeffery (2010), Melvin Ingram (2011), Jadeveon Clowney (2012-13) and Kelcy Quarles (2013).

Well...that was according to the "experts". This was voted on by the Coaches, who obviously don't know near as much as the "experts".
