San Diego State running back Donnel Pumphrey continues to stack up awards and accolades Monday, after being named as a mid-season All-American by CBS Sports.

SDSU’s finest player has established himself as one of the all-time great college RB’s this season. As if his 11 touchdowns and nation-best 1,111 total rushing yards this season aren’t convincing enough, he also currently sits at eighth all-time with 5,383 rushing yards. With seven games left not counting a conference championship or bowl game, he’s all but a lock for top five at the least.
With six games left not counting a conference championship or bowl game, he’s all but a lock for top five, possibly top three. He’s averaging 185.17 yards a game.
He’ll look to continue his success Friday against San Jose State. The Spartans sit at 2-5 on the season while SDSU has started off on its best foot since 1977 with a 5-1 record, undefeated in conference play thus far.
