STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford center Chase Beeler has been named a first team All-American by the Associated Press while quarterback Andrew Luck earned second team honors.

Beeler is the first Stanford offensive lineman to earn first team AP All-America honors since Eric Heitmann in 2001. Beeler also was named a first team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and was a second team Walter Camp Football Foundation selection.

The Associated Press' first team linemen also includes tackles Gabe Carimi of Wisconsin and Nate Solder of Colorado and guards Rodney Hudson of Florida State and John Moffitt of Wisconsin.
