Baylor's Terrance Williams Earns Unanimous All-America Honors

Seniors WR is sixth unanimous All-American in program history

 DALLAS – Baylor senior wide receiver Terrance Williams was named a first-team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America on Friday, marking his 10th first-team All-America honor of the season. The selection makes Williams Baylor's sixth all-time unanimous All-American.

 Williams joins Bill Glass (1956), Mike Singletary (1980), Thomas Everett (1986), Santana Dotson (1991) and Daniel Sepulveda (2006). Williams is the Bears' first offensive skill position player to be named a unanimous All-American.

 Williams is the 15th player in program history to be named a FWAA All-American, and he joins Robert Griffin III (2011), Jason Smith (2008) and Sepulveda (2006) as the only Baylor honorees during the Big 12 era. RG3 and Williams combine to give Baylor FWAA All-Americans in consecutive seasons for the third time in program history, and Williams joins Stanley Williams (1951) and Lawrence Elkins (1963 & 1964) as the only FWAA All-American receivers in program history.

 A Dallas, Texas, native, Williams has also been named a first-team All-American by The Associated Press, the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Sporting News, ESPN, SI.com, CBSSports, FoxSportsNext, Phil Steele and the American Football Coaches Association.

 Phil Steele's All-America team was also released Friday, and Williams was joined by teammate Cyril Richardson, who was a third-team All-American.

 Williams was one of three Biletnikoff Award finalists. He leads the nation with 1,764 receiving yards and ranks eighth nationally with 95 receptions. He's already broken the Baylor single-season receiving yards record, and his 12 receiving TDs and 95 receptions are both the second-most in a season in program history. He needs 236 receiving yards in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl to become the second 2,000-yard receiver in NCAA history.

 Williams has gone over 100 receiving yards in eight of 12 games this season and has had at least 70 yards in every game. He's also broken Baylor's career record with 4,554 all-purpose yards, and his 1,778 all-purpose yards on the season are also a school record. He broke Baylor's single-game receptions record and set a Big 12 record for receiving yards when he racked up 314 yards on 17 receptions on Sept. 29 at West Virginia.

 Baylor concludes the 2012 season by facing UCLA in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27 at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium. The Bears will be playing in bowl game in a third straight season for the first time in program history. Fans can purchase tickets and find bowl information at www.BaylorBears.com/bowlcentral.
