NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma offensive tackle Trent Williams earned first-team All-America honors from the Associated Press on Tuesday. The AP honor marks the third All-American team for Williams for the 2009 season.
 
The senior from Longview, Texas, had earlier been named to the American Football Coaches Association and Walter Camp Football Foundation teams.
 
Williams missed the regular season finale 27-0 victory over Oklahoma State with an injury, but still led OU this year with 885 plays and 102 knockdown blocks. He has been a three-year starter for the Sooners.
 
This marks the sixth time in the past seven seasons that an OU offensive lineman has earned All-America status (Trent Williams, 2009; Duke Robinson, 2008; Duke Robinson, 2007; Jammal Brown, 2004; Vince Carter, 2004; Jammal Brown, 2003).
 
Williams joins OU defensive tackle Gerald McCoy in making first-team on three different All-America teams in 2009. McCoy was honored by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Football Writers Association of America and the Sporting News.
 
 
Oklahoma has now produced 150 All-Americans in the program's history including 30 first-team honors under head coach Bob Stoops.
 
No program in the nation has produced more unanimous (31) All-Americans than OU. Oklahoma also has the most consensus All-Americans (69) in the modern era of college football (since World War II).
