The postseason awards keep on flowing for Ka'Deem Carey.

The UA's standout running back has been named a first-team All-American by several major outlets already this morning.

Perhaps the biggest is the Associated Press. For the second straight year, Carey was named to the AP's All-American team. He is one of two running backs on the team along with Boston College's Andre Williams.

Carey is the fourth UA player to be named a two-time AP All-American joining Tedy Bruschi, Ricky Hunley and Rob Waldrop. 

If Carey is named a first-teamer by either the American Football Coaches Association or the Football Writers Association of America, he will be a consensus All-American for the second straight year. 

To be a consensus pick, a player has to be on at least three of the following teams: Associated Press, Walter Camp, Sporting News, FWAA and AFCA.

Carey was named to the Walter Camp team last week and the AP this morning. He was passed over for Auburn's Tre Mason and Williams by the Sporting News.

The AFCA and FWAA will release their teams tomorrow.

Here's a recap of today's honors:

AP All-American team

Sports Illustrated All-American team

CBS Sports All-American team

ESPN.com All-American team (from yesterday)
