Juszczyk Named to Associated Press All-America First Team

NEW YORK, N.Y – Harvard senior tight end Kyle Juszczyk added his fifth All-America honor on Wednesday night with the Medina, Ohio native being selected to the prestigious Associated Press All-America team.

Also a 2011 All-American, Juszczyk has now been named to elite teams by the AP, American Football Coaches Association, The Sports Network, Beyond Sports Network and CollegeSportsMadness.com.

Harvard has had at least one All-American in each of the last 14 years. 

Juszczyk led the Ivy League with eight touchdown receptions and led a potent Harvard team with 52 catches for 706 yards (13.6 ypc). For his career, he set the mark for all Harvard tight ends with 125 catches for 1,576 yards and 22 touchdowns.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. What makes these teams so special is that they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the men who know the players the best — the coaches themselves.

Harvard went 8-2 overall and defeated Yale, 34-24 to earn a program-record sixth straight win over the Bulldogs as well as the 11th victory over the Elis in the last 12 years. The season marked Harvard's Ivy League-record 12th-straight season with at least seven wins – with no other Ivy team even having seven such seasons.
