More hardware came for six HBCU Division I athletes as the Associated Press announced its 2015 Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team.

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and Southwestern Athletic Conference each had three selections.

Prairie View’s do-it-all running back Johntà Hebert landed on the first-team offense at the all-purpose position. Hebert finished the season second in FCS in all-purpose yards per game (201.2).

Taking a note from the STATS All-America Team list, South Carolina State defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and Norfolk State linebacker Deon King appear on the first-team defense. Hargrave, the two-time MEAC defensive player of the year, was fifth in FCS in sacks (13) and tackles for loss. (20). King led the nation with 163 total tackles.

Southern wide receiver/kick returner Willie Quinn earned a third-team offense spot as an all-purpose performer after leading FCS with four kickoff returns for touchdowns and ending the season sixth in kick return average (28.8 yards/return).

Alabama State linebacker Kourtney Berry, the two-time SWAC defensive player of the year, landed on the third-team defense. Berry’s 130 total tackles was the fifth-highest total in FCS.

Texas Southern punter Cory Carter earned a third-team spot. Carter led the SWAC in punting, and his 45.7 yards per punt was third best in FCS.

Five of the six players honored by the AP — Hebert, Hargrave, King, Quinn and Berry — also received All-America honors from either STATS and College Sports Madness.
