The preseason accolades continue to roll in for William and Mary standout senior cornerback B.W. Webb, as he has been selected to the College Sporting News Preseason All-America Second Team.
Recently chosen to the Buck Buchanan Award Watch List, which includes 20 of the nation’s top defensive players in the Football Championship Subdivision, Webb was also tabbed as a preseason All-American by The Sports Network this summer. Additionally, he garnered preseason All-Colonial Athletic Association distinction at the conference’s annual media day last week.
Webb continued to establish himself as one of the country’s top cornerbacks last season and earned first-team all-conference honors for the second consecutive year. Last fall, the Newport News, Va., native finished the season with 40 tackles, 3.0 tackles for a loss and two interceptions.
One of the most-decorated players in Colonial Athletic Association history, Webb has earned six all-conference postseason honors during the past three seasons. During that time, he has totaled 11 career interceptions and currently ranks tied for eighth on W&M’s all-time list.
The Tribe will open the 2012 season when it plays at Maryland on Sept. 1.
