As a punt returner, Andre Jones earned second-team All-American status at midseason, according to Sports Illustrated.
Jones is third in the nation in return average at 20.4 yards a pop.
Eddie Royal of Virginia Tech is the first-teamer, having returned two punts for touchdowns, including an 82-yarder against Clemson. Jones and Royal are third and fourth, respectively, in return average in the nation. Certainly, the Miracle return played a part in the award, despite it not being classified as an actual return, because Alphonso Owen caught the ball.
