UNC's Cooper Named Walter Camp All-America

Posted December 7, 2012

— North Carolina senior guard Jonathan Cooper was named a Walter Camp first-team All-America Thursday, adding to his collection of postseason honors.  

A native of Wilmington, N.C., Cooper graded out at 90 percent for the season and had double-digit knockdown blocks in nine of the Tar Heels' 12 games. Running behind Cooper and left tackle James Hurst, UNC tailback Giovani Bernard ran for 1,228 yards. North Carolina Logo More UNC Stories

The Walter Camp team is the third All-America team for Cooper, the Tar Heels' top-rated offensive lineman. Cooper also earned first-team honors by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and the Football Writers' Association of America (FWAA). He was one of three finalists for the Outland Trophy, which goes to the nation's top interior lineman. He is the first Tar Heel to earn Walter Camp All-America honors since defensive back Trimane Goddard was a second-team selection in 2008.

The Walter Camp All-America team is selected by the head coaches and sports information directors of the 124 Football Bowl Subdivision schools.

    If you watched the State/Carolina game, you know exactly who he is. Just congratulate the kid without having to take a cheap shot at him.

    And I disagree on your assessment. No way I posted 500 comments in one week. You should make your sarcasm a little clearer for others.

    Performance enhanced steroid induced posting again. You know nothing but still post. Last week you were at 700 posts, this week at 1200. 500 posts in a week so thats a bit over a year to get back to your old count unless you start hiring someone to post for you while you sleep.

    Really happy for Cooper - he's a great guy and well deserving of this award. I'm going to miss seeing him play next year. He represented Carolina very well.

    Yep. They ISOed on him in a few games and he was destroying guys one on one. Will be the first Offensive Guard taken in the draft. Just the way Tar Heels roll.
