Robinson Named AP All-American

NORMAN, OK -- Oklahoma offensive guard Duke Robinson has been named a first team All-American by the Associated Press. The team was released Monday afternoon.

OU linebacker Curtis Lofton, the AP's Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, was a second-team All-American according to the wire service.

It's the fourth first-team All-America selection for Robinson, who also was named by the Football Writers, the Sporting News and Sports Illustrated.

Lofton was a first team selection by The Sporting News and the American Football Coaches Association.

Over the course of its 112-year football history, OU has produced 144 All-Americans. This marks the sixth time in Bob Stoops' nine season at Oklahoma that the Sooners have produced multiple All-Americans in the same season.

Stoops' teams have produced a total of 24 All-Americans. Lofton is the fourth linebacker to be so honored under the current head coach while Robinson is the third offensive lineman.

Oklahoma's players are completing final exams this week. They will return to the practice field Thursday.

The Sooners are preparing for their trip to the 37th annual Fiesta Bowl and a game with West Virginia. That contest will take place Jan. 2 in Glendale, Ariz. OU will depart Oklahoma City on Dec. 26.
