KALAMAZOO, Mich.—Western Michigan University’s wide receiver Corey Davis and offensive lineman Taylor Moton have been named to the Football Writers Association of America All-American team. Davis is a First-Team selection while Moton is a Second-Team selection. This is the first time in program history any Broncos have been honored by the FWAA.

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 leads the Football Bowl Subdivision. Earlier this year he became the all-time leading FBS receiver in history. He now has 5,212 yards in four seasons and is the first receiver in FBS history with four seasons of more than 900 yards.

Davis was also named an Associated Press First-Team All-American. He was the first player in Western Michigan history to earn AP First-Team honors and the 11th player overall to be named to the team. He was also named an all-American by Sporting News, Sports Illustrated, USA Today and the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Earlier this month, he was named the Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year. Davis 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.

For Moton, this is his first all-American honor. Earlier this month he was named to the All-MAC First Team after leading the Broncos’ offensive line to a ranking of No. 4 in the country by Pro Football Focus. The team is currently 22nd in the country this season in rushing offense and have allowed just 14 sacks on the year, the 11th fewest in the country. Moton is the first Bronco offensive lineman to be named all-American since Kevin Haverdink in 1988.
