Texas State's Cameron Luke named third-team All-American wide receiver

Texas State senior wide receiver Cameron Luke was named a Third-Team All-American selection by the Associated Press after his record-setting senior season in 2008 when he ranked 12th nationally with 73 receptions, fifth nationally with 1,268 receiving yards and fourth nationally with 17 touchdown catches.Luke broke his own school records for most receptions and most receiving yards in a single season. He also tied former Bobcat standout running back Claude Mathis for the most touchdowns scored in a season.

A two-time All-Southland Conference First-Team selection, Luke also broke Southland Conference records for most touchdown receptions in a career and is the only Southland Conference receiver to ever record 10 touchdown receptions in back-to-back seasons. He caught 12 touchdown passes in 2007. He led the Southland Conference in receptions and receiving yards in 2008. Luke ended his collegiate career with 142 catches for 2,431 yards and 32 touchdowns at Texas State.

This marks the second straight season the Associated Press has chosen a Bobcat as a FCS All-American. Last year, Chris MacDonald was chosen a First-Team All-American punter. He is the first Bobcat wide receiver to earn All-America honors. Luke is the first Texas State wide receiver to earn All-America honors since 1987 when Eric Tennessee earned NCAA I-AA All-America Third Team honors.
