Release: 12/12/2013

NEW HAVEN, CT - North Carolina junior tight end Eric Ebron has been named a second-team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.  The 124th Walter Camp team, the nation's oldest All-America team, was announced Thursday on The Home Depot ESPN College Football Awards Show.

A native of Greensboro, N.C., Ebron led the Tar Heels with 55 catches for 895 yards and three touchdowns. He set the ACC single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end and set the single-season school record for receptions by a tight end.

The Foundation is offering a "Holiday Ticket Promotion" for the National Awards Dinner. Buy two tickets for $450 (you save $150) before December 31.  Please call (203) 288-CAMP (288-2267) for more information.

Walter Camp, "The Father of American football," first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp - a former Yale University athlete and football coach - is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side.  The Walter Camp Football Foundation - a New Haven-based all-volunteer group - was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation is a member of the National College Football Awards Association (NCFAA). The NCFAA was founded in 1997 as a coalition of the major collegiate football awards to protect, preserve and enhance the integrity, influence and prestige of the game's predominant awards. The NCFAA encourages professionalism and the highest standards for the administration of its member awards and the selection of their candidates and recipients.
