NORMAN, Okla. -- For the second time this week, Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was named an All-American, this time by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).

On Thursday, McCoy was named to the Walter Camp Foundation All-American team.

The junior from Oklahoma City is the 37th Sooner player to earn All-America honors in more than one season. He was named to All-America teams by The Sporting News and Sports Illustrated after the 2008 season.

McCoy was the target of frequent double-team blocking schemes during the 2009 season but still tallied 31 tackles, including 14.5 for losses. He also registered five sacks and a team-high 10 quarterback hurries.

McCoy broke up two passes, forced one fumble and recovered one fumble. During the season he broke the school record for most consecutive starts by a defensive lineman. That total now stands at 38.

McCoy and his teammates will play their season finale on Dec. 31 against Stanford in the 76th Brut Sun Bowl.
