The Texas A&M football team have had an eventful season so far, losing two straight games before toppling a top-ranked Alabama team. The Aggies are now in South Carolina ahead of a well-deserved week off.

At 5-2, the Aggies are close to bowl eligibility thanks to strong annual performances from a few players. The best part? It’s not on one side of the ball – while Texas A&M struggled offensively, the team’s offense and defense both had their moments.

Today, I’m going to be reviewing every Texas A&M football player who has received a mid-season All-American honor by The Athletic.

The Aggies had two players selected as their first midseason all-star team and a third selected for the second team.

Kenyon Green (OL)

The first, and perhaps the most obvious, Texas A&M football player to be selected for The Athletic’s midseason All-American squad was Kenyon Green, who won first-team honors. It’s hard to write about in-depth offensive linemen, but Green has shown he can play all the way down the offensive line. Here’s what The Athletic said about versatile lineman Aggie.

The 2020 All-American is the only FBS offensive lineman to have played at least 80 snaps at four different offensive line positions this season, according to PFF. He started – and excelled – on right tackle, right guard, left guard and left tackle.

The Aggies’ offensive line has been shaky with injuries, but Green has given the unit plenty of stability throughout the year. Green was selected as the All-American midseason first team.

DeMarvin Leal (DL)

The argument could be made that DeMarvin Leal is the Kenyon Green of the defensive line. Aggie’s third-year defensive lineman is as versatile as he gets, capable of playing virtually any position on the line at 6’4 ″ and nearly 300 pounds.

Leal currently has 5.5 sacks in the year and is just getting started. He also didn’t have an explosive game that counted for most sacks, he has been consistent and consistent, never having played more than one sackless game this season. He also recorded 8.5 tackles for a loss.

DL was also selected as the All-American first team.

Antonio Johnson (DB)

Antonio Johnson was one of the most surprising actors in the SEC. Safety Aggie came out of nowhere and is second on the team with 51 tackles. If there is a game to be played, he does it.

With four pass deflections and one interception last week, Johnson represents the Aggies in the second team midseason. As a sophomore, we got to see Johnson sneak into the first team on the road.
