Liberty's Matt Bevins has added another All-America honor to his season, while teammate Chris Summers received his first All-America honor, with both players being named to the Associated Press All-America team on Wednesday.

Bevins was a second-team selection as a kicker, while Summers was one of two third-team wide receiver selections. On Wednesday, Bevins was named a first-team All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation.

This marks the second year in a row Bevins has been named an AP All-American, after garnering first-team honors in 2009. Both seasons, Bevins led all FCS kickers in the country in field goals, including this year with 20 three-point kicks.

Bevins also was the nation's top-scoring kicker in 2010, 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.

Summers, who missed the last game of the year against Stony Brook with an injury, ranked No. 2 nationally with a program-record 15 touchdown receptions. He also set the school record with 1,081 receiving yards and ranked No. 5 nationally in receiving yards per game (108.1).

Summers caught at least one touchdown pass in eight out of 10 games this season and posted five 100-yard receiving games.

Both Bevins and Summers, along with other members of Liberty's football team, will have one last chance to earn All-America honors later this month, when the Sports Network releases its All-America listing.
