Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers’ sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Tigers receive All-America honors
Four Auburn football players earned a tremendous honor on Monday afternoon.
Kerryon Johnson, Braden Smith, Carlton Davis and Daniel Carlson were named to the Associated Press All-America teams. Smith was a first-team member, while Johnson, Davis and Carlson all made the second team.
Previously, Johnson was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Year by the AP and SEC coaches. It’s just more honors and accolades for Gus Malzahn’s program.
