Michael Mayer and Kyle Hamilton named Associated Press All-Americans


The security of Notre-Dame Kyle hamilton and tight end Michel mayer were selected from the Associated Press All-American teams.

Hamilton was named second All-American team by the Associated Press and Mayer made third team.

Hamilton, a junior, has only appeared in seven games this season after injuring his knee against USC. He won’t be returning for the Fiesta Bowl game against Oklahoma State on January 1. Instead, he chooses to prepare for the NFL Draft, where he will likely be the first defenseman selected.

Hamilton finished the season with 34 tackles, two loss tackles, four broken assists and three interceptions.

Hamilton was also named an All-American First Team by the Football Writers Association of America and an All-American First Team by the Walter Camp Foundation.

Mayer has 64 catches leading the team for 768 yards with five touchdowns this season in his sophomore. Mayer was a 2020 All ACC third-team selection to go with a number of Freshman All-American honors.

Nine players Notre Dame played against have been selected for the AP team.

Purdue Wide Receiver David Bell and the Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad Gardner were named in the first team. Jahmyr gibbs, a sophomore at Georgia Tech, was named to the second team as a versatile player. Jermaine johnson, a leading forward for Florida State, made the second team in defense as did Leo Chenal, a junior linebacker, in Wisconsin. Coby bryant, a Cincinnati cornerback was also selected for the second team.

Josh seltzner, a guard in Wisconsin, made the third team and did the same Drake London, a wide receiver for USC. George karlaftis, a Purdue junior defensive end, also made the third team. Kolby Harvell-Peel, an Oklahoma State defensive back, was another addition to the third team.
