NC State sophomore cornerback David Amerson has been named to the 2011 Walter Camp All-America first-team.

That team is being recognized tonight at the Home Depot/ESPN College Football Awards Show in Orlando, where Amerson is also a candidate for the Thorpe Award.

Earlier this week, the Greensboro native was named the winner of the 2011 Jim Tatum Award, which is given to the nation’s top defensive back. He leads the nation in interceptions with 11, four more than any other player on an FBS team.

Amerson tied the ACC single-season interception record with his 11th pick against Clemson on November 19. He set the NC State mark against North Carolina on November 5, breaking the record that had stood since 1938.

Only three other players in State history have been named to the Walter Camp first team and Amerson is the first in 32 years. Other Wolfpack players who were Camp All-Americans were center Jim Ritcher (1979), offensive guard Bill Yoest (1973) and defensive end Dennis Byrd (1967).
