Postseason honors continue to roll in for standout football players Kevin Fogg and Chris Summers, with two different organizations naming them to their All-America teams.

Fogg (kickoff return specialist) and Summers (wide receiver) were both named to the Phil Steele Postseason FCS All-America second-team, while Fogg was selected to the Walter Camp Foundation FCS All-America squad.

Fogg led all FCS players in the country in average return yards per kickoff return (33.52), finishing more than two yards per return ahead of No. 2 A.J. Cruz of Brown (31.15).

Fogg set a program record and was one of two Division I football players in the country (both FCS and FBS) to finish the 2011 season with three kickoff returns for a touchdown (New Mexico State's Taveon Rogers also finished with three returns for a touchdown).

Fogg gives Liberty a player on the prestigious Walter Camp Foundation All-America team for the fourth season in a row. Previous Liberty selectees on the first-team only listing include Matt Bevins (kicker/2009 and 2010) and Rashad Jennings (running back/2008).

Summers crossed the 1,000-yard threshold for the second season in a row, helping cement his name in Liberty's record books.

The senior closed out his career by setting a single-game receiving record with 240 receiving yards against Stony Brook during Liberty's season finale. The record-setting performance gave him 1,014 total receiving yards for the season on 64 receptions (average yards per reception 15.8).

Summers finished his career as Liberty's all-time leader in touchdown receptions (26), receiving yards (2,712) and total receptions (188).

This is the second year in a row Summers has been honored by Phil Steele, as he was named to the publications Postseason FCS first-team All-America squad in 2010.

Last month, Fogg and Summers were selected to the Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS All-America team. Fogg was a first-team honoree as a kickoff returner specialist, while Summers was a third-team selection at wide receiver.

Following this weekend's FCS national championship game between Sam Houston State and North Dakota State, the final FCS All-America team will be released by the College Sporting News to close out this year's national FCS postseason awards.
