The American Football Coaches Association has named Weber State senior offensive lineman and Utah native J.C. Oram to its 2011 FCS First-Team All-American Team.

The graduate of Fremont high School was part of an offensive line that blocked for several all-conference runners, including Trevyn Smith, who was the Wildcats career leader in rushing. He also blocked for 2008 Big Sky MVP quarterback Cameron Higgins, the school and league all-time career touchdown leader.
