Harris named All-American by Associated Press
Cornerback earns second-team honors

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech senior cornerback Victor Harris was named a second-team All-American by The Associated Press Tuesday afternoon. For the Highland Springs, Va., native, it is his first All-America nod.

The AP is one of the five recognized All-America squads along with AFCA, FWAA, Sporting News and Walter Camp. With Harris being honored, it keeps alive defensive coordinator Bud Foster’s streak of having at least one recognized All-American from the defense in each of his 14 seasons as either coordinator or co-coordinator at Tech.

Harris has six interceptions this year, returning two for touchdowns. He also returns kicks and has made contributions on offense this year.

The AP is the fourth of the five squads to announce its All-America teams. Sporting News will announce its squads Wednesday morning.

The entire AP first and second teams can be found here.
