Cumberland offensive lineman AJ Harmon was voted second team AFCA-NAIA Coaches’ All-America, as announced this week by the American Football Coaches Association.
The Wadley, Ga., native started all 22 career games for the Bulldogs at left tackle, helping CU post a 15-7 mark over the last two seasons. Cumberland ranked in the top 10 nationally in rushing offense per game (243.2) and total rushing offense (2,675), averaging 30.3 points per contest. The club won seven of its final nine games of the year in 2013 under first-year head coach Donnie Suber.
Harmon was also part of an offense that ranked fourth in rushing offense per game (269.7) and fifth in total rushing offense (2,967) in 2012 while averaging 31 points per outing. He originally signed with Georgia and spent one year in Athens before transferring to Alabama State and then to Cumberland.
The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. It is the only All-America squad selected by the coaches each season.
