Three Football Salukis Named to All-America Team

SIU Salukis

Three members of the SIU football team earned All-America honors after their performances this spring.
Saluki wide receiver Avante Cox and all-purpose running back Javon Williams Jr. were both featured on the first team of the Stats Perform FCS All-America Team, announced on Monday. Safety Qua Brown was named to the second team.

This is the first time since 2009 the Salukis had multiple players on the first-team All-America squad.

SIU lost in the quarterfinal round of the FCS playoffs to South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits play Sam Houston State for the FCS Championship on Sunday.
