LUBBOCK, Texas – Junior tight end Jace Amaro became just the fifth Red Raider in school history to earn unanimous First Team All-America honors on Wednesday afternoon with the release of the final team recognized by the NCAA.

The Football Writers Association (FWAA) All-America team concluded the major award season by naming Amaro as the first-team tight end.  The NCAA recognizes the FWAA, AFCA (American Football Coaches Association), The Sporting News, Associated Press and the Walter Camp teams when determining consensus (three of five teams needs) and unanimous All-Americans.

Michael Crabtree is the last Red Raider to collect unanimous All-America honors as he did so in back-to-back seasons in 2007 and 2008.  Tech’s other unanimous All-America honorees are Mark Bounds (1991), Zach Thomas (1995) and Byron Hanspard (1996).
