Torrance Williams earned All-America honors at two positions and Timothy Flanders received national honors for the third year in a row as the pair both are listed on the 2013 FCS All-America squad.

Williams, a senior from Waco, was a first team selection as punt return specialist.

The Connally High School product leads the Southland Conference and ranked No. 2 nationally in punt returns with a 16.0 per return average. With 29 punt returns for 469 yards, Williams already has broken the Sam Houston single season punt return yardage school record. He stands 65 yards away from breaking the Southland record.

Williams was named to the third team All-America squad as a wide receiver. Flanders joins Williams as a third-team selection.

With 55 catches for 964 yards receiving, Williams leads Sam Houston this season. He ranks No. 8 in all-time SHSU career receiving yards with 1,707 and No. 11 in Bearkats’ career all-purpose yards (2,820).

Flanders, who now has been named to 11 All-America squads in the past three years, is the only running back in Southland Conference history post career totals of more than 5,000 rushing yards and 400 points.

Flanders carried 220 times for 1,348 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. His career rushing total stands at 5,582.

The Bearkats take on Southeastern Louisiana Saturday at 7 p.m. in an NCAA Division I Football Championship playoff second round game Saturday in Hammond, La.
