NEW YORK -- Mitch Erickson was named a first-team selection and Tyler Koch earned third-team honors on the 2007 Association Press Football Championship Subdivision All-America Team, which was announced Wednesday.

For Erickson, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound senior guard, it was his second All-America honor this week as he was named to the AFCA Division I Football Championship Subdivision Coaches' All-America Team on Monday.

A native of Hutchinson, Minn., Erickson completed his collegiate playing career by helping lead the Jackrabbits to the 2007 Great West Football Conference title — the program's first conference championship in 44 years. He started all 44 of the team's games at either guard or tackle during his Jackrabbit career from 2004-07, was part of an offensive unit that averaged 34.2 points per game and allowed only 12 sacks during the 2007 campaign.

During his career, Erickson earned first-team all-GWFC honors three times. He was honored on The Associated Press All-America Third Team in 2006, as well as receiving honorable mention All-America recognition from Don Hansen's Football Gazette. In addition, Erickson has been a two-time academic all-conference honoree and was an ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District selection in 2007 while majoring in mechanical engineering.

Koch, a senior cornerback from White Lake, led the team and Great West Football Conference with seven interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns. His 99-yard interception return for touchdown Nov. 10 against Southern Utah set an SDSU record for the longest interception return in school history. A two-time GWFC Defensive Player of the Week, Koch ranked seventh on the team with 64 tackles in earning first-team all-GWFC honors.
