Eastern Washington junior wide receiver Cooper Kupp and senior offensive linemen Clay DeBord and Aaron Neary added to their treasure trove of honors Wednesday, when they were announced as Associated Press FCS All-Americans.
Kupp, a former Davis High School standout, was named to the first team along with Asotin’s DeBord. Neary, who played at Hanford High School, landed on the second team.
All three players last week were named to the College Sports Madness All-America squad.
Kupp has 114 catches for 1,642 yards and 19 touchdowns, all tops in FCS. He’s a three-time AP first-team selection.
DeBord started a school-record 51 games at EWU and played in 52, while Neary started in 24 of his 46 games. All three helped Eastern finish eighth in FCS in total offense with 478.5 yards per game.
Montana State’s Dakota Prukop, who plans to transfer to Oregon next season, was named to the AP FCS All-America first team at quarterback. The team also includes running backs Marshaun Coprich of Illinois State and Lamar’s Kade Harrington, who are finalists for FCS offensive player of the year with Kupp.
Prukop told Fox Sports on Tuesday that he plans to transfer to Oregon, where he can be immediately eligible to play next season after graduating. The junior has passed for 3,025 yards and 28 touchdowns, and has run for 797 yards and 11 scores.
Prukop will be the second consecutive AP FCS All-America quarterback to transfer to Oregon, following Vernon Adams of Eastern Washington.
