The AP released its 2020 All-America team Monday and a pair of Tigers were recognized at some of the best at their respective positions.

Cade York was named second-team All-American, while Elias Ricks was on the third-team. Ricks is the only true freshman to make any of the three AP All-America teams.

York finished the year connecting on 18 of 21 kicks, including a dramatic 57-yard game winner against Florida. York was also a perfect 36-36 on PATs and was named a Lou Groza Award semifinalist.

Ricks shined as a true freshman. Ricks intercepted four passes and returned two for touchdowns. Ricks was only thrown at 28 times all season long and only allowed 13 completions.
