ATHENS, Ga. --- Five University of Georgia football players have been named to the Pro Football Weekly All-America team, according to a recent announcement.
Junior flanker A.J. Green, senior offensive guard Clint Boling, junior offensive guard Cordy Glenn, junior outside linebacker Justin Houston and junior punter Drew Butler were all named to the first team at their respective positions.
The five Bulldogs named to the team are more than any other school in the nation. There are only four other players from the Southeastern Conference on the squad with one each coming from LSU, Alabama, Auburn and Florida.
PFW's All-America team annually honors the most talented players in college football and is determined based on considerable feedback from NFL evaluators taking into consideration a player's pure talent and contribution to his team. Unlike many other teams rewarding the best college football players, PFW places an extra premium on true talent and draft value in the selection process. Extra attention was paid to qualities such as toughness, competitiveness and work ethic.
The Bulldogs (6-6, 3-5 SEC) return to action versus #24 UCF (10-3, 7-1 Conference USA) in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., on Dec. 31 at 3:30 p.m. ET.
