Heel Tough Blog: Hampton Continues to Roll in All-American Honors

Two more entities released their All-American teams on Thursday afternoon and Omarion Hampton was recognized yet again for his phenomenal regular season. 

Hampton took home second team honors from both the American Football Coach Association and The Sporting News earlier today, giving him six All-American designations overall. The Associated Press, CBS Sports and Sports Illustrated also had him as a second team member, while the Walter Camp Football Foundation had him on their first team.

Hampton finished the regular season fourth in the FBS in rushing yards (1442), eighth in rushing touchdowns (15), third in scrimmage yards (1657) and first in yards after contact (1023).  His rushing yards are the third most in program history and his touchdowns sit sixth right now. He’ll have a great chance to boost those numbers in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl later this month, especially with quarterback Drake Maye sitting out.
