Lavonte David Named First-Team All-America

Lavonte David - a deserved honor. Who's in line next year from Nebraska for All-America honors?

Nebraska's Lavonte David was named to the AFCA's (American Football Coaches Association) first-team All-America defense as announced earlier today. This is the third straight year Nebraska received a first-team selection, with Ndamukong Suh receiving the honor in 2009 and Prince Amukamara in 2010. It's a far cry, though, from the 12 straight seasons the Huskers had a first-team selection from 1978-1989.

David finished the 2011 regular season with 122 tackles, 18th in the nation, and has lead the Husker defense in tackles the past two season. David is only the fifth player in Nebraska history with consecutive 100-tackle seasons, along with Lee Kunz, Jerry Murtaugh, Clete Pillon and Barrett Ruud.

Other first-team selections from the Big Ten include:

OL Kevin Zeitler - Wisconsin

C Peter Konz - Wisconsin

RB Montee Ball - Wisconsin

DL Jerel Worthy - Michigan State

DL Whitney Mercilus
