Football: Woods named an All-American

USC receiver Robert Woods was named an ESPN.com All-American on Saturday, one of two pass-catchers in the country to earn such honors.

Woods, a sophomore, finished the 2011 season with 111 catches for 1,292 yards and 15 touchdowns for the Trojans, working out to an average 108 receiving yards per game. He played much of the season bothered by nagging ankle, shoulder and elbow injuries but was still voted one of three finalists for this year's Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the country's best receiver.

He was named alongside Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon in Saturday's list of the country's best players. Other offensive players included on this list included quarterback Andrew Luck and running backs Trent Richardson and Montee Ball.

Woods was the only Trojan named an All-American, although transfer Jarvis Jones made it as a sophomore linebacker for Georgia. Left tackle Matt Kalil was beaten out by Alabama's Barrett Jones and Oklahoma State's Levy Adcock.
