Tre Mason received more All-American awards today when he was named both an Associated Press and a CBS-Sports.com second-team All-American. 

This time, members of his offensive line were also recognized as Tackle Greg Robinson and Center Reese Dismukes were named third team All-American by the AP. Robinson was also named second team all-American by Sports Illustrated and it was the second All-American team for Dismukes. In addition, Chris Davis made First Team CBS-Sports.com All American as a punt returner

Earlier this week, Davis was named to the Sporting News All-American team and Alex Kozan and Carl Lawson were named to Sporting News’ All-Freshman team.

Yesterday Gus Malzahn garnered his third National Coach of the year award when he was recognized as the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year by the Sports Writers Association of America. Today the Auburn Head Coach received his fourth CotY award when he was named by CBS Sports.com as the Coach of the Year.

Mason’s two honors mark the fourth and fifth All-American teams that the Heisman finalist has made since the regular season ended – and all of the list are not out yet.

If Tre makes, the American Football Coaches Association and the Football Writers Association of America teams, he will be considered a consensus All-American.

Congratulations men for well deserved recognition and War Eagle!

    I am MOST proud of this team for their own redemption in their eyes that they are great football players!! They didn’t know last year how great they could be until a man with great leadership and vision guided them to their greatness!! I just can’t say enough about this coaching staff and what they have done to merit these awards. It’s makes me proud to be an Auburn Tiger!!

    ……It shows how much us armchair quarterbacks know. We piped up time and time again, for the coaches to take Chris Davis off the punt return team. We were afraid he might get hurt. As it happened, Davis has no fear, and he had one of the best punt returner years in Auburn history.

    ……I think Mike Fuller might have had some similar punt return years around 1972-1974. And I think Thomas Bailey’s 1000+ yards in a season in 1991 is safe in that department, but Davis ranks up there. And arguably had the most important return in Auburn history in this year’s Iron Bowl!

      The “most important return” leads me to ask an interesting question–I didn’t see that 100-yards in the kick return or punt return stat sections in the box score–would that play be in a stat category all by itself (and in college recent history, the ONLY one in a category one all by itself)?

        …..I noticed that, too. I would have thought that it belonged under kick return yardage, but it was not shown anywhere. Curious.
