Jameis Winston is not only the Heisman winner, he’s now an All-American.
FSU’s freshman QB led a contingent of SEC and ACC players on the AP’s All-America teams that were announced about noon today.
The offense includes Boston College RB Andre Williams, Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews, Alabama OT Cyrus Kouandjio, FSU C Bryan Stork, Texas A&M WR Mike Evans and FSU K Roberto Aguayo. The defense includes Missouri DE Michael Sam, Pitt DT Aaron Donald, Alabama LB C.J. Mosley, FSU CB Lamarcus Joynder and Ole Miss S Cody Prewitt.
Of the 25 players on the first team, 12 are from SEC and ACC schools. Four of those are Seminoles.
Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel was a second-team selection, as was Clemson WR Sammy Watkins and DE Vic Beasley and Auburn RB Tre Mason, among others.
Alabama QB AJ McCarron is the third-team QB and Georgia Tech Jeremiah Attaochu is a third-team DE.
Here’s Sports Illustrated’s teams, which didn’t include Mosley among it’s first-team LBs.
A loaded year for LBs. We put 4 on first team — Murphy, Barr, Shazier and Mack — and still had to leave off another stud, C.J. Mosley.

And here’s ESPN.com’s team. Winston was the first-team QB on both of those teams.
I forgot to mention earlier that Jadeveon Clowney, who was first-team All-SEC, isn’t on any of the three AP teams, but teammate Kelcy Quarles is on the second team.
