WOAY – The honors continue to pile up for West Virginia senior defensive tackle Darius Stills.
A couple of weeks after being named the Big 12’s Defensive Lineman of the Year, Stills was named an AP first-team All-American. He becomes the first Mountaineers player to accomplish this feat since Tavon Austin in 2012.
In addition, sophomore defensive back Tykee Smith earned third-team honors, after recording two interceptions and eight tackles for loss this season. Smith did not make either Big 12 All-Conference teams.
For Marshall, senior guard Cain Madden made the second-team, completing his journey from walk-on to one of the best offensive linemen in the country.
Virginia Tech tackle Christian Darrisaw joins Madden on the second-team offensive line.
