PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AAC/SMU) - SMU sophomore Deion Sanders, Jr., was named to the first team of the All-American Athletic Conference as a return specialist in a poll of the league's 11 head coaches, the AAC announced today.

Sanders, the son of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, notched 759 return yards in just 10 games this season, the seventh-best season in school history, including a school-record 203-yard performance at UCF on Nov. 22. That game was one of three 100-yard-plus performances, as the sophomore also had 131 yards at Baylor and 108 versus Cincinnati.
