DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt freshman DeVon Edwards was named to the Walter Camp All-America second team as a kickoff returner, the organization announced Thursday.
 
Edwards, a 5-9, 185-pound safety, did not take over as Duke’s primary kickoff returner until week five but has since averaged an ACC-leading 31.1 yards per kickoff return with two touchdowns returns covering 100 and 99 yards. He has returned 18 kickoffs for 559 yards to rank second nationally in kickoff return average and is also an All-ACC second team selection.
 
Edwards accounted for three touchdowns in Duke’s 38-20 win against N.C. State on Nov. 9, returning two interceptions for scores and a 100-yard kickoff return. His interception returns came on back-to-back plays and covered 25 and 45 yards.
 
Also a starter at safety, Edwards has logged 55 tackles, three interceptions and six pass breakups in six starts. He has reached double-digit tackles twice and secured the game-winning interception with 13 seconds remaining in Duke’s school-record 10th victory of the year at North Carolina on Nov. 30.
 
Edwards is the second Duke player to earn All-America honors this season, joining USA Today All-America second team selection Jeremy Cash, also a safety. Edwards is the eighth player in Duke head coach David Cutcliffe’s six seasons to receive All-America honors.
