Senior cornerback Prince Amukamara was one of 11 defenders named to the 2010 American Football Coaches Association All-America team. Amukamara was the only Husker named to the 25-player team, which included four players from the Big 12 Conference.
The Glendale, AZ native was one of four defensive backs on the team. Amukamara ranks third nationally with 13 pass breakups this season, a total that is tied for seventh in NU history.
Amukamara is also one of three finalists for the Jim Thorpe Award, which will be presented to the nation’s most outstanding defensive back next month. Amukamara is the 94th Husker to earn first-team All-America honors.
