A University of Oregon football player was again honored Thursday by one of the most prestigious awards in college football.
The 124th Walter Camp Football Foundation honored its All-America 1st and 2nd teams which included Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.
Ekpre-Olomu was one of twenty five players announced as a Walter Camp Foundation all-america 2nd team recipient, and the fourth consecutive year an Oregon player made either the 1st or 2nd team.
Ekpre-Olomu, a junior from Riverside California, recorded a total of ( 78 ) tackles and ( 3 ) interceptions in 2013 as the Ducks head into the 21st Annual Valero Alamo Bowl on December 30th to play the Texas Longhorns.
The Walter Camp All-America teams are selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of the 125 Football Bowl Subdivision schools.
Walter Camp Football Foundation President James Monico was pleased with the voting participation.
“Once again, we had more than 80 percent of the FBS schools participate in this year’s voting,” Monico said when making the announcement.
“We are very appreciative of the continuing cooperation of the coaches and sports information directors in our annual effort to honor the nation’s most outstanding college players.”
Other Oregon players recently named as Walter Camp Foundation All-Americans were cornerback Cliff Harris ( 2010 ), running backs LaMichael James ( 2010 & 2011 ), and Kenjon Barner ( 2012 ).
