Preston Williams, Ryan Stonehouse earn second-team All-America honors from Sporting News
The 2018 college football season is over for Colorado State football, but a variety of individuals are still being recognized for their success on the field.
On Tuesday, Sporting News released its annual All-America selections and both junior wide receiver Preston Williams and sophomore punter Ryan Stonehouse were recognized on the second team. Earlier this month, Williams and Stonehouse were also the only Rams to be recognized with first-team all-conference honors.
As noted by CSU football, Williams and Stonehouse are the sixth and seventh Rams in the past six seasons to earn All-America honors from a major organization, joining DE/LB Shaquil Barrett (2013), RB Kapri Bibbs (2013), WR Rashard Higgins (2014), P Hayden Hunt (2015) and WR Michael Gallup (2017).
Williams, who recently announced that he will declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, is coming off of one of the most productive seasons in CSU football history. The 6-foot-4, 201-pound wide receiver finished with 96 receptions, 1,345 yards (14.0 yards per reception) and 14 touchdowns.
Stonehouse led the Mountain West and finished second nationally with gross punting average of 48.3 yards, a CSU record. He placed nearly 30 percent of his punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line and posted five games in which he averaged 50.0 yards or better with five or more punts.
