Oregon Trio Selected As AP All-Americans

EUGENE, Ore. — Oregon football’s offensive trio of Jackson Powers-Johnson, Troy Franklin and Bo Nix were announced as Associated Press all-Americans on Monday morning. Powers-Johnson became the 11th player in program history to secure consensus first-team all-America status, while Franklin was named to the second team and Nix was selected to the third team.

Winner of the Rimington Trophy as the nation’s top center, Powers-Johnson has been named a first-team all-American by each of the first three official organizations (AP, FWAA and Walter Camp) that comprise consensus and unanimous all-Americans. If he is selected to the first team by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and Sporting News, he would become the fifth unanimous all-American in program history.

Franklin was also named a second-team all-American by the FWAA earlier on Monday. Nix earned third-team honors from the AP while still in New York after being a Heisman Trophy finalist and being recognized for winning the prestigious William V. Campbell Trophy as the nation’s top scholar athlete.
