D3football.com All-Americans

The first D3football.com All-America team was awarded in 1999 and is, along with the AFCA All-America team, the only ones recognized in the NCAA record book. Players are nominated by schools in November and December for the D3football.com All-Region team, and are then considered for All-American.

The D3football.com All-American team honors just 11 on offense and 11 on defense per team, plus four special-teamers, with four teams named, one of them honorable mention.
