Belcher an All-American

The accolades keep on rolling in for defensive end Jovan Belcher who was named a First-Team All-American this week by two organizations: the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and the Walter Camp Foundation. Belcher was named a second team All-American last year. Only four Black Bears have earned All-America honors in multiple seasons:
  • John Huard (1965-66)
  • Aaron Dashiell (1998-99)
  • Stephen Cooper (2001-02)
  • Jovan Belcher (2007-08) Belcher finished a standout senior campaign with a conference leading 17.5 tackles for loss and was named the 2008 CAA Football Defensive Player of the Year at the close of the season.556729.jpeg
