Payton Award finalists Taylor Heinicke, the record-setting quarterback from Old Dominion, and Eric Breitenstein, the 2,000-yard rusher from Wofford, have been selected to The Associated Press FCS All-America team. Heinicke had the most prolific passing season in the history of what used to be called Division I-AA football. The sophomore from Georgia passed for 5,076 yards and had 5,546 yards of total offense, breaking records set by the late Steve McNair when he was at Alcorn State in 1994. Breitenstein is making his second straight appearance as a first-team All-American. The senior ran for 2,035 yards and 19 touchdowns this season. The Walter Payton Award goes to the top player in FCS.
