ATHENS, Ga. --- University of Georgia junior outside linebacker Jarvis Jones has been named to the Associated Press All-America First Team for the second consecutive season, according to an announcement Tuesday.

Jones has already been named a Walter Camp, an AFCA and a Sporting News All-American this season.

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 AP Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year last week and was a unanimous selection to the All-SEC first team.  In addition, Jones was named to the All-SEC Coaches first team.

This marks the second straight year Jones has been named to the AP All-America First Team.  Jones is only the fourth Georgia player to garner this honor at least twice in his career.  There have been eight first team selections for UGA since Mark Richt was named head coach in 2001 and 30 since the Bulldogs’ first in 1927. 

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 at Missouri and against #3 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.
