C.J. Mosley Honored By Walter Camp AA Team
Former Alabama players are forever welcomed back to Tuscaloosa. The athletic familial bond and camaraderie endures for life. On a different scale, the Walter Camp Football Foundation weekend events foster an accelerated version to create another lifelong fraternal tangible membership to an organization. The current All-Americans spent the past few days developing friendships among themselves, returning alumni and committee members. One hundred twenty-four Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors cast votes to assemble the squad.
The Tide's C.J. Mosley joins the forty-nine University of Alabama student-athletes past and present to be a First Team selection recognized by the prestigious association. Five Crimson Tide players were honored twice raising the number of First Team designees to fifty-four – lineman Barrett Jones (2012 & 2011), linebacker, Cornelius Bennett (1986 & 1985), safety, Tommy Wilcox (1982 & 1981), linebacker, Thomas Boyd (1981 & 1980) and running back, Johnny Musso (1971 & 1970). Alabama had two or more First Team honorees nine times since 1934 including four in 2009, 2011 and 2012. The five-year streak of the Crimson Tide having at least one Walter Camp First Team All-American leads the nation.
Alabama's leading tackler (107 total, 66, 41 assisted) for the 2012 season discusses a myriad of topics including his first visit to the Nutmeg state, leadership, the number 26 on the helmet honoring the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims, Johnny Manziel and repeating as BCS National Champions.
