Texas senior OT Tony Hills has been selected first-team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Texas senior OT Tony Hills has been selected first-team All-America by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, it was announced at the Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. on Thursday night.

Hills' selection gives Texas eight consecutive years with at least one player named to the team with a total of 15 players chosen in that time span. It is also the 11th season of the last 12 in which at least one Longhorn has been chosen.

In a release from Texas, Hills said:

"I'm really excited to be a member of the Walter Camp All-American team. I had a great time meeting all of the Walter Camp folks and hearing about the great tradition they have with Longhorn linemen. It's a great honor to be joining the long list of UT All-Americans and something I'll be proud of for the rest of my life. After going down with an injury late in the season, it's even more special to still be honored as an All-American. It kind of puts the icing on the cake of my college career. Now I'm going to keep coaching up the young guys, go to San Diego and try to win our fourth straight bowl game."

A first-team All-Big 12 selection, Hills had started 24 straight games and played in 42 career games.
