Garoppolo, West lead AP All-America team


Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and fellow Walter Payton Award finalist Terrance West of Towson have been selected to The Associated Press FCS All-America team.

Garoppolo passed for 5,050 yards and 53 touchdowns and won the Payton Award as the top player in FCS. He led Eastern Illinois (12-2) to the quarterfinals of the NCAA playoffs.

West has run for 2,295 yards and tied an FCS record with 39 touchdowns to help Towson (12-2) reach this weekend's semifinals after it eliminated Eastern Illinois last week.

Montana State defensive end Brad Daly, who won the Buck Buchanan Award as the top defensive player in FCS, was selected to the first-team defense, along with cornerback Marcus Williams of two-time defending national champion North Dakota State.
