David Sills V named Walter Camp Second Team All-American

David Sills V is one of the most under-appreciated players in the country, but he earned recognition on Thursday night.

The West Virginia wide receiver was named a Second Team All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation. Sills joined Syracuse’s Steve Ishmael on the second team.

Sills led the nation in touchdown catches with 18. He had the seventh-most catches and yards in the Big 12 Conference. He formed a dynamic partnership with quarterback Will Grier.

In any other year, he would be considered one of the best — if not the outright best — receivers in the country. But conference rival James Washington had an incredible year, and Colorado State’s Michael Gallup earned plenty of attention. Those two players beat out Sills for first-team recognition, and Washington edged him for the Biletnikoff Award.

But Mountaineers fans know how valuable Sills has been this season. If he returns for his senior year, the West Virginia offense will be one of the best in the country.
