Heisman Trophy finalists MacJohns and Devonta Smith were named to the Associated Press All-America, leading a five-man Alabama squad in the first-team attack.
Back-running Crimson Tide Nagy Harris, tackling Alex Leatherwood and midfield Landon Dickerson is first-team picks. Alabama No. 1 has been the first team since 1980, when the AP All-America team began featuring two wide receivers and two jogging backs, for midfielder pose, back-running and receiver in the first team.
Cornerback Patrick Surtain II offers Crimson Tide six Picks for the First Team, the most in the country. No. 4 Notre Dame, the opponent in a playoff match at College Football in Alabama this weekend, has two First American teams in Offensive Guard Aaron Banks and full back Jeremiah Oso Kuramoah.
Florida central midfielder Kyle Traske was selected in the second team, and his Heisman finalist Trevor Lawrence of Clemson was the third midfield player in the AP teams released on Monday. Lawrence, the likely first choice in the next NFL draft, made AP All-America for the first time in his career.
No. 2 Clemson, who will face third-place Ohio State in the CFP semi-final at Sugar Bowl Friday night, had only one player selected in the All-America Teams: Running Back Travis Etienne made the all-time first-team-purpose player. The former was the second All-American Team to fall in the past two seasons.
Ohio State goalkeeper Wyatt Davis is the only player to have repeatedly played for the first team across America after his brilliance in 2020. Davis is one of two Buckeyes in the first team alongside corner back Shaun Wade.
