The accolades continue to pile up for Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, who was named to the Associated Press All-America First Team just days after capturing the coveted Heisman Trophy.   

Winston was joined on the first team by fellow Heisman finalists Andre Williams of Boston College at running back and Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch as the all-purpose player.

Here is a look at the full first-team roster:

The honor doesn't come as a big surprise for Winston after his landslide Heisman Trophy victory. According to Ray Sanchez and Chelsea J. Carter of CNN.com, Winston was taken aback by the enormity of winning the most prestigious individual award in American sports.

"It's a blessing. I don't even know what's going on right now, honestly. I'm just so happy. I'm overwhelmed," Winston said.

Winston enjoyed a dominant season for the Seminoles that saw him accrue more than 4,000 total yards and 42 total touchdowns en route to an undefeated campaign.

Per SportsCenter, the 19-year-old freshman became the youngest player in history to win the Heisman Trophy.

Texas A&M signal-caller Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to accomplish that feat last season, and although he fell short in his bid to win two straight, he was named to the Associated Press All-America Second Team.

Auburn running back Tre Mason was named to the second team as well after finishing sixth in the Heisman voting.

The entire second team is as follows:

Arguments can always be made that some players were more deserving than others, but it is great to see the nation's best players get honored regardless.

The three All-America teams are each stacked with a ton of talent, and it's more than likely that most of these athletes will be playing on Sundays in the near future.
