Morgan Named Second Team Walter Camp All-American

Dec. 10, 2009

ATLANTA — Georgia Tech junior defensive end Derrick Morgan added to his growing list of postseason awards when he was named second team Walter Camp Football Foundation All-American on Thursday.

Earlier this month Morgan was named first team All-American by the AFCA (American Football Coaches Association) and the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Morgan ranks among the national leaders in sacks (12.5) and tackles for loss (18.0).

Morgan was one of three Atlantic Coast Conference players named to the Walter Camp first or second team All-America teams. Clemson’s C.J. Spiller was a first-team selection as a kick returner. Morgan and Boston College center Matt Tennant were named to the second team.

Morgan and the Yellow Jackets begin preparations Monday for the Jan. 5 FedEx Orange Bowl, where they will play 10th-ranked Iowa.
