Dec. 6, 2012

Florida State’s Bjoern Werner and Dustin Hopkins have both been recognized as 2012 Walter Camp First-Team All-Americans in an announcement made Thursday night by the Walter Camp Football Football Foundation at the Home Depot ESPN College Football Awards.

Werner led the Atlantic Coast Conference in sacks this season with 13, was named ACC Defensive Player of the Year by both the media and coaches, and was a finalist for the Nagurski Award.

Hopkins, a Groza Award finalist, has converted 24 of 28 field goals and an ACC-record 133 points this season. He is the NCAA FBS all-time kick scorer with 459 points.

Earlier Thursday, Hopkins was announced as a first-team Capital One Academic All-American, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). A graduate student pursuing his master’s degree in international affairs, Hopkins carries a 3.76 cumulative grade point average. He was a second-team Capital One Academic All-American in 2011.

Werner and Hopkins also earned first-team All-American honors from on Thursday.
