DAVIS, Calif. - The postseason awards continue to come in for UC Davis standout offensive lineman Sean Davies who was named to the Associated Press FCS All-America third team on Wednesday, his second All-America honor this week.
Davis was named to The Sports Network/Fathead.com All-America second team on Monday, adding the Associated Press honor just 48 hours later. He earned distinction on the All-Big Sky Conference first team in November, the third all-league recognition of his career.
Davies, a 6-foot-4, 297-pound guard from Westlake Village, Calif., started all 43 career games he played for UC Davis and was twice honored on All-Great West Conference teams before the Aggies made their debut in the powerful Big Sky this season where he received first-team accolades.
"There's no one that deserves it as much as Sean," said head coach Bob Biggs who retired from coaching after this past season. "He's a great success story. He came in as a walk-on and has been a four-year starter. He's a great representative of the program and we couldn't be happier or prouder for him."
Davies is scheduled to graduate this month with a history and political science double-major, and carries a 3.49 GPA. He has received three Great West All-Academic honors and has been nominated for several other scholar-athlete awards.
Davies is the seventh Aggie since 2005 to earn AP All-America honors and the first since tight end Dean Rogers was named to the third team in 2010.
Fifteen players from the Big Sky received mention on this year's team.
