After a season spent as the leader of an offensive line that cleared the way for a much improved rushing attack in 2012, postseason awards are coming to UC Davis guard Sean Davies faster than an Aggie running back bursting through a hole.

On Wednesday, Davies was named to the Associated Press FCS All-America third team. The honor comes just two days after the senior earned distinction as a second-teamer on The Sports Network/Fathead.com All-America squad.

“There’s no one that deserves it as much as Sean,” said Bob Biggs, who retired as UCD’s head coach after the season. “He’s a great success story. He came in as a walk-on and has been a four-year starter. He’s a great representative of the program and we couldn’t be happier or prouder for him.”

Davies, a 6-foot-4, 297-pounder from Westlake Village started all 43 games he played for the Aggies and was twice honored on All-Great West Conference teams before receiving All-Big Sky first-team accolades this fall.

Davies is scheduled to graduate this month with degrees in history and political science, and carries a 3.49 GPA. He has received three Great West All-Academic honors and has been nominated for several other scholar-athlete awards during his UCD career.

The seventh Aggie since 2005 to earn AP All-America honors, Davies is the first since tight end Dean Rogers was named to the third team in 2010.
