College Football 2022 Midseason All-America Team

Hendon Hooker, Tennessee Volunteers Football

With half of the 2022 college football season completed, it’s time to hand out some hardware in the form of midseason All-America selections. This list is likely to look drastically different by December, but the players honored and mentioned below have performed at a high level through the first seven weeks of '22.

Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker takes first-team honors after a strong performance against Alabama, but the signal-caller selections are tough with Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud not far behind. Running back is also deep, as two players from the Big Ten in Blake Corum (Michigan) and Chase Brown (Illinois) take the top spots after seven weeks.

Who were the top players from the first seven weeks of action? Athlon Sports selects midseason All-Americans for 2022:
