Jarvis Jones Named Walter Camp 1st Team All-America


Dec. 6, 2012

ATHENS --- University of Georgia junior linebacker Jarvis Jones has been named to the Walter Camp All-America first team, according to an announcement Thursday by the Walter Camp Foundation.

The 122nd edition of the nation's oldest All-America team was honored on ESPN's The Home Depot College Football Awards Show Thursday night.

A 6-3, 241-pound native of Columbus, Ga., Jones has 77 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception in 11 games this season. Currently, Jones leads the NCAA in forced fumbles per game and tackles for loss per game. He was named the Associated Press' Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year on Monday and was a unanimous selection to the All-SEC first team. On Tuesday, he was named to the All-SEC Coaches' first team.

This marks the second straight year Jones has been named to the Walter Camp All- America first team. There have been nine first team selections for UGA since Mark Richt was named head coach in 2001 and 36 since the award began in the late 1800s.

Jones was also selected as a finalist for the Bednarik, Nagurski, Butkus and Lombardi Awards along with the Lott IMPACT Trophy. He was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week twice this season after his performances against Missouri and Florida.

Fifth-ranked Georgia will face No. 23 Nebraska in the 2013 Capital One Bowl in Orlando on Jan. 1 at 1 p.m. ET.
