KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University wide receiver Corey Davis has been named an Associated Press, USA Today, Sports Illustrated, Walter Camp Football Foundation and Sporting News All-American.

Davis posted his third straight 1,400-yard season this year, finishing the regular season with a career-high 91 catches for 1,427 yards and 18 touchdowns. His 18 TDs is the most in the Football Bowl Subdivision. His is the all-time leading FBS receiver with 5,212 yards and is the first receiver in FBS history to have four seasons of 900 or more yards.

Last week, Davis was named the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year. He is now a four-time All-MAC player, including three straight seasons as a first-team selection. He is the first Bronco wide receiver to be named MAC Offensive Player of the Year since Greg Jennings in 2005 and just the second WMU wide receiver to earn the award in program history.

Davis was a first-team selection on the USA Today All-American team, making him the first WMU player in 34 years to earn first-team all-America honors. Center Matt Meares earned first-team honors in 1982 from the Football Coaches Association.

He was also a first-team selection on the AP All-American team—the first in WMU history.
