KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University senior wide receiver Jordan White is one of 25 student-athletes to be named to the American Football Coaches Association All-America Team.

White is only the second Bronco in program history to earn a spot on the AFCA All-America Team, joining Matt Meares who accomplished the feat as a center in 1982.

The Associated Press named White to its All-American third team, and he was named a second team All-American by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, making him the WMU football program's first consensus All-American.

A Cleveland native, White leads the nation in all receiving categories except touchdowns and topped his 2010 performance with 1,646 yds, 127 receptions and 16 TDs this season. White holds all but three receiving records at WMU and needs just 110 yards to break the Mid-American Conference career receiving yards record.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and now selects teams in all five of its divisions.

White was chose in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS), previously called Division I-A.

What makes these teams special is they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the people who know the players the best--the coaches.
