UTSA running back Sincere McCormick has earned second-team All-America honors from the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) for the second straight season, the organization on Friday announced in partnership with the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. 

McCormick joins Iowa State’s Breece Hall in the second-team backfield while collecting his third career All-America certificate after also receiving a second-team nod from Phil Steele in 2020. The program now has seen four Roadrunners — Lucas Dean (2), Hunter Duplessis (1) and David Morgan II (2) — combine for eight All-America accolades in its 11-year history. 

This honor comes on the heels of McCormick being named the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and first-team all-conference for the second consecutive year. He also was selected as the Best Running Back and to the All-Texas College First Team by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football this week. 

McCormick has rushed for 1,479 yards and 15 touchdowns on 298 carries — all UTSA records — and caught 22 passes for 184 yards in 13 games this fall, helping lead the No. 24-ranked Roadrunners to a 12-1 record. The Converse Judson High School product has topped the 100-yard mark on the ground in a program-record eight games, including rushing for 204 yards and three TDs in the 49-41 victory against WKU in the C-USA Championship Game. He broke his own UTSA standard for single-game attempts with 41 for 184 yards and three scores in the 31-28 comeback win at Memphis, and he also reached the end zone three times after rushing for 113 yards in the 45-16 victory over Louisiana Tech.

A semifinalist for both the Doak Walker and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Awards, McCormick leads C-USA and ranks fifth in the FBS in rushing yards and he sits 10th nationally in rushing touchdowns. A 2019 FWAA Freshman All-American, he owns 20 school records including rushing yards (3,929), rushing TDs (34), 100-yard rushing performances (18) and all-purpose yards (4,438). 

The Roadrunners will make their second straight and third overall bowl appearance when they face San Diego State (11-2) in the Tropical Smoothie Café Frisco Bowl on Tuesday, Dec. 21. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. at Toyota Stadium in Frisco and the game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
