Consensus achieved: Darius Stills nets top All-American honors

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — For the first time in fourteen years, West Virginia University is the home to a Consensus All-America football player. Fairmont Senior High School graduate Darius Stills has earned the honor after garnering a majority of the first team All-America recognitions from the five All-America teams recognized by the NCAA.

The senior defensive lineman finished the 2020 season with 25 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 7.5 tackles for loss and an interception. He also registered 10.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss over the past two seasons. Stills was named the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year this fall.

Center Dan Mozes and running back Steve Slaton were WVU’s last Consensus All-Americans in 2006. Other Mountaineers to earn this distinction are Ira Errett “Rat” Rodgers, Bruce Bosely, Darryl Talley, Brian Jozwiak, Mike Compton, Todd Sauerbrun, Aaron Beasley, Canute Curtis and Grant Wiley.

Players who earn at least three first team All-America team honors automatically qualify for consensus honors. If the spots at the specific position aren’t filled, then the players with at least two first team selections will be considered and the second team selections will be used as the tiebreaker. A player who earns five first-team spots will be named a unanimous All-American.
