For the second year in a row, Liberty kicker Matt Bevins has been named a Walter Camp Football Foundation All-American, as the organization named its top offensive and defensive FCS teams yesterday.

Bevins finished the season ranked No. 1 in the country in field goals per game (1.82) and was one of only two FCS kickers with 20 field goals in 2010. Overall, Bevins finished the year by knocking down 20-of-27 field goal attempts, including his last 13 tries in a row.

Bevins also was the nation's top scoring kicker, as the junior finished the season with 105 points scored. He connected on 45-of-46 point-after attempts on the year, helping him surpass the 100-point mark for the second season in a row.

In just three seasons at Liberty, Bevins has already rewritten several of Liberty's kicking records. He is the program's all-time leader with 54 field goals and 268 points scored.

Bevins was one of four players to earn repeat Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America honors. The junior was joined by Villanova offensive lineman Ben Ijalana, Eastern Washington linebacker J.C. Sherritt and Appalachian State defensive back Mark LeGree, the third three-time honoree in the 121-year history of the team.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America team is the oldest All-America football team in the country and is voted upon by select head coaches and sports information directions from FCS programs around the country.

Players from 12 different FCS conference and 24 programs were presented on this year's Walter Camp Football Foundation FCS All-America team. The Big Sky and Southern Conference had the most selections with four each.
