CHAPEL HILL– A pair of Tar Heel football players was named to the USA Today Sports All-American team Wednesday.
Junior tight end Eric Ebron and freshman return specialist Ryan Switzer get the honor of representing Carolina along with other elite athletes across the nation.
Ebron had 895 receiving yards and three touchdowns this season while Switzer exhilarated Carolina fans everywhere with his punt returns.
Both Tar Heels were named Second-team All-Americans. The ACC was well represented on the list with 13 selections. That number was more than any other conference.
Conference member Florida State featured five selections including Heisman front runner Jameis Winston.
Carolina’s Ebron will be leaving school for the NFL, but Switzer will be back on the field next season.
