The number of college football All-America lists might just outnumber the reasons the BCS-bowl system is a crock, but it’s still an achievement anytime a service academy player’s name winds up on one.

Air Force cornerback Reggie Rembert was named first-team All America by the American Football Coaches Association. Other names found on the first-team list include Auburn quarterback and Heisman Trophy shoe-in Cam Newton as well as Oregon running back LaMichael James, who leads the nation in rushing.

Rembert led the Falcons with three interceptions this year. Not a gaudy statistic, but considering how rarely quarterbacks chose to throw to his side of the field, it’s not bad.

Rembert is the first Air Force player to earn an All-America distinction since 1992 when another cornerback, Carlton McDonald, was honored. Former Air Force running back and current Philadelphia Eagle Chad Hall earned third team honors in 2007 on’s All-America team.

The Falcon cornerback was a first team All-Mountain West selection last year and a pre-season first team All-MWC selection this year. Upon graduation Rembert will get plenty of looks by NFL scouts who already have him on their radar screen.
