CHICAGO – May 10, 2021 — The FCS college football season that’s been spread over fall and spring semesters is quite different, but the tremendous individual talent on the playing fields is oh-so-familiar.

The 2020-21 Stats Perform FCS All-America Team, announced Monday, boasted 83 players on first and second teams, representing 45 schools.

The first-team All-Americans included the players who are invited to the upcoming announcements of the Walter Payton Award (FCS offensive player of the year) — quarterbacks Eric Barriere of Eastern Washington and Cole Kelley of Southeastern Louisiana and running back Julius Chestnut of Sacred Heart — and the Buck Buchanan Award (FCS defensive player of the year) — linebackers Colby Campbell of Presbyterian and Stone Snyder of VMI and defensive end Jordan Lewis of Southern.

North Dakota State boasted the most All-Americans with six, helping the Missouri Valley Football Conference to 16 selections, the overall high. Delaware, Jacksonville State, James Madison and national finalists Sam Houston and South Dakota State had four selections each.
