Ole Miss fans may remember the first time seeing Nick Broeker on the field, and if so, it was likely him tumbling through a defender trying to drive him through the back of an endzone.
The senior offensive lineman started all 12 games for the Rebels this season and this week was named to the Walter Camp All-American team. His punishing blocking style and ability to finish was clearly recognized as he earned the honor alongside 26 other players.
Broeker was slotted on the second team in the All-American team list. The Illinois native has earned freshman All-American, All-SEC, Outland Trophy Watch List and Senior Bowl honors in his four year career at Ole Miss.
This is the third consecutive season with an Ole Miss player earning All-American honors following Elijah Moore and Sam Williams.
