    A few days late on this, but Shawn Powell has been named to yet another All-American list.

    Powell, who has already earned first-team All-American honors from the American Football Coaches Association, the Walter Camp Football Foundation and, was recently named to the Yahoo! Sports All-America team.

    From the Yahoo! announcement: "Powell leads the nation with an average of 47.0 yards per punt. He also has helped Florida State lead the nation in net punting (42.0). Twenty-one of his 49 punts this season have exceeded 50 yards, and seven went at least 60 yards. He has landed 21 of his 49 punts inside the opponent's 20-yard line, and 12 have gone inside the 10. Sixty-three percent of his punts haven't been returned."

    In addition to Powell's honor, Timmy Jernigan was named to Yahoo! Sports Freshman All-America team.

    From the Yahoo! announcement: "Although he isn't a starter, Jernigan emerged as a vital part of a deep line rotation that has helped Florida State rank second nationally in run defense and fifth in tackles for loss. Jernigan has 28 tackles - six for loss - and 2.5 sacks. He had two tackles for loss and a fumble recovery in a shutout of North Carolina State."
