CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – All-America honors continue to roll in for Virginia wide receiver Malik Washington as he was named a second team honoree on both the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and Associated Press All-America Teams on Monday (Dec. 11). Washington was one of two representatives from the ACC on the FWAA All-America Team.

Washington’s record-breaking season concluded with 110 receptions for 1,426 yards and nine touchdowns. The 110 receptions led all FBS receivers and broke both ACC and UVA single-season marks. His 9.17 receptions per game were also single-season ACC record and was the highest of any player in FBS. Washington’s 1,426 receiving yards, led the ACC, ranked third in the nation, set a UVA single-season record and were the fifth-most ever by an ACC pass catcher. He recorded a 100-yard receiving effort in 10 of UVA’s 12 games this season. He finished his collegiate career with a reception in 37-straight games dating back to his time at Northwestern.

The FWAA All-America Team was first selected in 1944, three years after the organization was formed. Since 1945, the FWAA All-America Team has been among the five teams used to formulate the NCAA’s annual consensus All-America team, which will be announced later this week. Since the 2002 season, the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), The Associated Press, The Sporting News and the Walter Camp Football Foundation have joined the FWAA as the five designated selectors by the NCAA.
