MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State freshman kick returner Joshua Youngblood recorded another postseason accolade as he was named a Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Second Team All-American, the organization announced Thursday.

It is Youngblood’s fifth All-America designation this year. He was named to ESPN’s team on Monday, while he has also been named a Second Team All-American by CBS Sports, a Freshman All-American by The Athletic and a True Freshman All-American by 247Sports.

Youngblood, the first Wildcat true freshman with multiple first- or second-team honors since Tyler Lockett in 2011, was honored as the 2019 Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year after leading the country with three kickoff-return touchdowns during the regular season.
