UTSA running back Sincere McCormick has collected his second All-America certificate of the season, as he was named to the Associated Press’ third team on Monday.

This marks the fourth career All-America award for McCormick, who was tabbed a second-team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America for the second straight year last Friday 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), McCormick (4), David Morgan II (2) — combine for nine All-America accolades in its 11-year history.

This honor comes on the heels of McCormick being selected as the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and first-team all-conference for the second consecutive year, as well as the Best Running Back and to the All-Texas College First Team by Dave Campbell’s Texas Football last 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 and the program’s first conference title. 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 en route to being named the C-USA Championship Game MVP. 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.
