AUBURN, Ala. — In what has become routine at this point, Tre Mason was named to another All-American team on Wednesday.

This time, the recognition from the Football Writers Association of America, which put Auburn's junior running back on its All-America second team. This added to his already-lengthy list of All-America honors, which include a first-team nomination from Sporting News, a pair of second-team designations from the Associated Press and USA Today, SEC offensive player of the year awards from the league's coaches as well as the AP and a sixth-place finish in voting for the Heisman Trophy.

C.J. Uzomah said all of the accolades for Mason are well-deserved.

"He's worked his butt off," the tight end said of his fellow junior. "He came in and that was one of his first goals — the first thing we talked about, obviously, was winning the national championship and second was his individual accolades (and) him hoping to become a Heisman candidate. He's done a great job this year. You can tell his work ethic on and off the field. He's a competitor and he fights, so being able to see him at that level is truly rewarding. I'm proud of him."

Mason was joined on the FWAA's second-team by left tackle Greg Robinson. The third-year sophomore was also named to the AP's All-America third-team on Tuesday.
