Another day, another postseason honor for UAB running back DeWayne McBride. The standout from Starke, Florida became the second player in UAB history to earn a spot on the Walter Camp All-American team, which is the nation’s oldest All-American college football team.

McBride was a second-team All-America selection. He is the country’s leader in yards rushing per game, overall rushing yards and carries of 20-plus yards. Earlier this week, he was selected as the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year.

J.J. Nelson was the first UAB player to make the Walter Camp All-American team. He was a first-team selection as a kick returner in 2014.
