WACO, TEXAS - Cumberlands (Ky.) running back Terrance Cobb and Friends (Kan.) defensive lineman Dexter Davis headline the 2012 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) NAIA Coaches' All-America Team, announced today by the AFCA.

The AFCA has selected an All-America team since 1945 and currently selects teams in all five of its divisions. What makes these teams so special is that they are the only ones chosen exclusively by the men who know the players the best - the coaches themselves.

Cobb led the nation in rushing with 1,991 yards, averaging 165.9 yards per game. He also led the nation in scoring, with 26 rushing touchdowns, and was second in all-purpose yards, with 2,218. Davis repeated as an AFCA All-American in 2012. He was third in the nation in both sacks per game (1.3) and total sacks (14), and finished fourth in the nation in tackles for a loss with 21. Davis recorded 45 total tackles, eight forced fumbles and four fumbles recovered.
